    Pfaff 19

    I'll add to the German theme. Here is my Pfaff 19, made for Pfaff by Dorina. I don't know much about it yet. It seems to be very similar to the Janome 444, not sure who was using who's design though....

    Looking for Pfaff 19 info

    I plan on doing 11' hammocks as well and I think I have an end cap type thing that will work well with a shorter zipper. I might go with a 108" instead of a 120" just to make that idea work better.
