Quality standards

The PFAFF 3822 provides a workplace, which, with the use of modern technology, makes the operation “ run-stitch and trim jacket edges” (run-stitch seams) much more efficient and at the same time guarantees a sewing quality which can be reproduced at any time.
Heavy coat materials, jackets and costumes of different fabrics, including silk and micro-fibres, can be sewn at a high quality level with the PFAFF 3822. A feathered edge trimming is possible with the sub-class -3/44. (sub-class -3/42: without feathered edge trimming)


  • The PFAFF 3822 is equipped with the ultra high-speed sewing unit PFAFF 487 with differential feed
  • Back-tacking device for reverse sewing or stitch condensation
  • The floating foot supports the even distribution of fullness and guarantees smooth seams
  • Differential top feed:
    • Due to the differential top feed it is possible to recall or programm the desired fullness manually (by a knee switch)
    • The keyboard has 12 keys for the application of fullness while sewing manually. With keys 1-6 the fullness is applied in the bottom ply and with keys 7-12 the fullness is applied in the top ply
    • By operating the knee switch, it is possible to change between flat sewing and gathering as required
  • Edge trimming device:
    • Regular cutting: 5.0 mm trimming margin on both material plies (sub-class -3/42)
    • Feather edge cutting: 3.5 mm on the top and 6.5 mm on the bottom material ply (sub-class -3/44)
  • The control panel:
    • Touch-screen-control-panel P1 with integrated SD card reader


    • Easy data transfer (from machine to machine) by a SD-card and USB
    • Programme selection:
      0 = manuel sewing
      1 and 2 = sewing with installed programmes (knee switch)
      3 to 49 = programmed sewing (with up to 15 seam areas for the left and right seam)
    • Seam parameters such as amounts of fullness or the number of stitches are combined in one program
  • As fullness can be applied to the top or bottom ply, the usual basting and clamping is not necessary
  • Precise reproducible application of fullness at any time with the use of the keyboard
  • Smooth seams due to the use of a floating presser foot
  • Exact curves at the tip of the lapels on double-breasted jackets by switching to stitch condensation
  • Flat, perfect edges with no pressure marks when using the feather edge trimmer on the sub-class -3/44.
  • Storing of seam sequences in conjunction with the touch-screen control panel on sub-classes ‑3/42 and ‑3/44.
  • This guarantees identical processing of different styles and sizes. And the machine can be adapted to a variety of materials
  • The seam area can be adjusted individually by teach-in-programm
