You will find a Husqvarna Viking sewing machine at the top of any tailor’s list of dream machines. The Swedish company’s mission statement says it wants to be recognized as the leading premium sewing machine company in the world, and many would agree that this has been accomplished successfully.
Known for quality and innovation, Viking sewing machines are designed to be easy and fun to use, while unlocking your creativity. They are engineered and crafted to highest-quality, expertly engineered standards. The company began as a royal arms factory in 1689, and has been making sewing machines using cutting-edge technology since 1872.
Husqvarna Viking sewing machines have long been the leaders in merging electronics and sewing. Way back in 1979, Husqvarna introduced a sewing machine to incorporate computerized functions, used to guide the stitch patterns. The next year, its successor model was the world’s first machine able to sew letters to produce perfect writing.
Today’s Husqvarna sewing choices are truly world-class, with the Designer Diamond, for instance, offering a high-resolution, interactive, full-color eight-inch touch screen inside a Swedish-engineered, lightweight, one-piece aluminum body. You have access to all stitches and all functions at a touch, and can see embroideries in three dimensions onscreen. You can also access a reference guide and help files and supplement your stitches and patterns, as well as update your software, via the Internet.
The Designer Diamond model has an extra-large sewing surface, providing the ability to embroider 360 x 350 mm designs using only one hooping. It also has one of the longest free arms you can find anywhere. The “step-saver operating system” uses renowned Swedish design to help you select your settings quickly and easily. Husqvarna’s Exclusive Sensor System™ presser foot adjusts itself automatically, according to the sewing technique you are using. The thread tension also adjusts itself automatically as you sew.
As if that is not enough, the machine will stop sewing and let you know via sound and light when either your top thread or bobbin thread breaks or runs low. You will be able to choose from over 1100 stitches, over 325 embroidery designs, and built-in numbers and letters that you can program to your specifications. There are even two USB ports and an included USB cable, so you can upload files from your computer and transfer them to cloth using your sewing machine.
Husqvarna sewing machines come in a wide range of prices and feature packages. Even the lower-priced machines feature the high quality and world-class design seamstresses have expected and received from Husqvarna Viking sewing machines since 1872.
