I STUDIED WHAT KIND OF SEWING/EMBROIDERY MACHINE TO GET AND THIS ONE WAS THE ONE PEOPLE SAID TO BUY. IT'S MUCH NICER THAN THE NEW ONES THAT ARE MADE IN CHINA. APPARENTLY, IT'S DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN PARTS FOR THE NEW MACHINES, AND THE NEW ONES ARE UNRELIABLE. THIS MACHINE HAS MANY WONDERFUL FEATURES, AND THE MACHINE WALKS YOU THROUGH WHAT TO DO. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THIS MACHINE.
Sewing machines do not ship well--I bought this on EBay and the clog that allows the feed dog to engage had been dislodged--not the machines fault and now that I already had it repaired, it runs fine. So nice not to "manually lift the pressor foot", the "fix" at the beginning and ending of seams is great too. I have not used the embrodery unit yet as I've spent most of my time trying to just sew! Everyone that I've talked with about this machine prior to purchasing says it's a great machine and I have to agree (now that it's recovered from shipping).
I love my Husqvarna Viking Designer SE. I have owned a 1+ for about 15 years and it just wore out. It is still a good heavy duty sewing machine, but the embroidery just wore out! So I am still using it for routine stuff and the new one is now my favorite for embroidery. It does so much more than I ever expected...even better than the 1+. I love the Husqvarna Viking machines. Never a question of the brand just the model. My next machine will be another step up to either the Ruby or the Diamond! Maybe whatever the next new one is! My opinion, you cannot beat the quality of the Husqvarna Viking brand! I have been sewing for over 50 years!
Designer 1 I paid $4000.00 for my embroidery machine and the software that is required to get designs to the machine. Now that windows 7 is out Husqvarna won't support the software (3D studio and digitizing) that I already bought for around 1300.00. I have to buy new software if I want that option. They said they only write software for the operations systems that are out at that time.. Well you know how fast operating system change!!! Buy your software today and tomorrow it may be obsolete and their answer is give us more of your money and we'll give you a different software that will run on the new operating system. Their machine are wonderful... Their support SUCKS!!
