Good luck Rose teaching your granddaughter your machine. Once she learns it I'm sure she will love it as much as you do. I had the same Pfaff as you do but my mother board died and the repairman said there was no way to bring her back to life.
I did love it for all it could do. So I upped my game and bought a 12 needle embroidery Highland machine which I love, but I still hope to one day to get a Pfaff again.

Subject: [Pfaff2170Machine] Learning my 2144 all over again
I am setting up my machine for my granddaughter, and since I need to teach her how to use it, I needed to refresh my memory. I am still impressed with how awesome this machine is. As a sewing machine it's great. I am just going over the great number of stitches I have loaded onto the machine. And I have a great many I designed in STITCH ARTIST (original software program). MOst of them stitch out just fine, but some I need to delete and turn into embroidery designs. Sewing maxi stitches on fabric on the sewing mode is very tricky. Putting them into the hoop would be a solution.
Years ago I made a STITCH NOTEBOOK with all the built in stitches and a lot of my own stitches. That took me several days of continuous sewing. I can give that to my granddaughter as a reference tool. Nothing like seeing the actual stitches on fabric.
Next I need to do some embroidery to remember how to do that. I do remember it was frustrating as I really had to keep track of the colors in order. Today's machines are far more helpful.
