Alfa Practik 7
If you already know how to sew and you like taking special care with each and every detail, Alfa Practik 7 is your machine. It is quiet, sews gently, and does not become jammed with thick fabrics like denim, plush, or leather. Its 23 different stitches include some elastic stitches so you can branch out with fabrics like knit fabric, Lycra, and T-shirts. This is a very comfortable, practical machine that comes with an automatic threader, it can make buttonholes in just one step (they all look the same, perfect!) and you can easily see the selected stitch with the LED stitch viewer. Below, you can learn details about its features and see videos on how to use it.
If you would like to go one step further, we recommend the Alfa Practik 9 or the Alfa 474, and if you would rather take a step back, then the Alfa Practik 5 is your machine.

You are almost ready to get your Alfa machine, but you still have a few questions that need answering. We will try to provide a response to your concerns:
Will I know how to use it?
We are very familiar with this feeling. In our "I Want to Sew" section and in leading sewing blogs, you can find tutorials that will help you to better understand your machine. If you would like to delve into the world of sewing, you can contact our partner academies and enjoy your Alfa to its full potential. What's more, we are always in motion and organise weekly workshops in different locations, attend DIY fairs, and organise events at haute couture centres.
Will it last many years?
Over the past 100 years in history, four generations have now sewn with an Alfa. Today, we are proud to walk hand-in-hand with our customers advise them whenever they need us. Regarding old Alfa machines, for example, we strive to provide replacements. Moreover, in this section, we have over 200 old (and modern) machine manuals that we have collected, because many of you have inherited an Alfa and are still sewing with it. The truth is, there are beautiful stories behind every Alfa, and we love it when you share them with us by email and on social media.
If it breaks down, what should I do?
Contact us through this form. At our Eibar facilities (Gipuzkoa, Spain), we repair machines, provide assistance, and coordinate workshops around the country. This gives us awareness of problems and allows us to resolve them quickly.

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT THE Alfa Practik 7
“Whether you are just beginning to sew, or you’ve already been sewing for a while, the Alfa Practik 7 is going to be a good sewing mate. We like it because it has a modern design. It is a stable, silent machine with many different stitches to sew different kinds of fabrics, even thick ones, with 6 rows of feed dogs and the one-step buttonhole. We love the Practik 7, and we love recommending it to all our students!”
Laura Fabregat"Lulú Ferris"
“The Practik 7 is perfect if you are just getting started. It includes an automatic threader, which is great and very useful. It is very easy to use and comes with loads of included accessories. With an innovative design, it works with all kinds of thicknesses and adapts very well to the most delicate fabrics, Lycra, knit, etc. I would certainly recommend this machine for its good price-quality ratio.”
Alexis C.Máquinas de coser Hijos de Cámara (Sevilla)
“The Practik 7 is an ideal machine if you want to begin sewing, because it is simple and very easy to use. It has a very broad working surface, and this is something that our students are very grateful for, both those who have just begun and those who have been with us for some time. We also love the automatic threader and that it makes buttonholes in one go. It is very beautiful; it’s got that green colour we are crazy about.”
