Viking Designer 1: I’ve got to free up space in my sewing room so some of my machines have to go. My loss is your gain! Offered here is my Viking Designer 1 machine and embroidery module and includes everything shown in the photos. This is the older version Designer 1 that uses floppy diskettes. Run time information that shows on the machine: Total On Time: 2002 hours, 51 minutes; Sew Time: 20 hours, 9 minutes; Embroidery Time: 376 hours 15 minutes.
I had this machine serviced by an authorized Viking technician several years ago and since then the machine has been stored under my sewing table. It is lonely and deserves to be used. If I had the room I would keep it simply because it is such a wonderful sewing machine. This is such a user friendly embroidery machine that the small hassle of the SHV embroidery format and the diskettes are worth the trouble. I took it for a test drive when I photographed it and it is sewing and embroidering beautifully. Please study the photographs; everything pictured is included. Note: the machine has lost one of its little rubber feet (see last picture) which should be an easy fix. It doesn't seem to affect its performance. Also note that this machine was manufactured in Sweden (see last picture).
Lots of extras are included!
A foot (for straight stitch, zig-zag stitching, other utility stitching)
B foot (for heavy or napped fabrics or decorative stitching)
C foot (for buttonholes)

You will need a way to get your embroidery designs onto the floppy formatted diskettes. I used my Viking 3D Embroidery Studio software that I am offering as a separate auction. Other options are available such as BuzzXplore (source information and easy How To instructions are included with auction).
This Designer 1 machine and the embroidery module will be boxed in their original shipping boxes and protected with the original molded Styrofoam packing material. This bundle will ship in three separate boxes.
