Just a quick note, you have incorrectly named the machines with the wrong picture at the beginning of the article. They should be reversed.
I wish I had a Viking sewing machine, whatever the name. We had Viking sewing machines in College (Missori Western State College), I was a Theatre Major and fell in love with Viking sewing machines. Nary a tangle, it was the most incredible sewing machine I ever sewed on and FAST.
I just can't believe that no one mentions the fact that these machines no longer have a presser foot lifter lever! All you do is tap the pedal and the foot lifts or lowers. What an incredible time saver. What an innovation. Even the manufacturer doesn't hype this enough! I own the Topaz 30, which is a marriage of the previous Sapphire 870 (their premium sewing-only machine) with embroidery. I am soooo much more productive in my quilting and clothing work. The machine is so smart, I almost never touch the handwheel anymore, and the auto pivot feature makes turning corners (I do a lot of machine applique) something I no longer have to think twice about. Thanks for telling us about these machines... but sure would be nice if you would tell us more. Your coverage was too brief! how about expanding the info in the magazine with more online coverage?!
Help, I have been comparing machines for quite sometime, which is a better machine Viking Diamond versus Babylock Ellisomo. Which is better embroidery design, user friendly, more punching power? Thank you!
I have a Viking Rose and Serger 905 I like my machines, would like to upgrade but can't afford it. I would not trade the machines that I have.
You don't even have to tap the foot, just let your foot off the gas and the foot raises, give it gas and the foot lowers. There are lots of good machines, but if they don't have the sensor foot, no way would I change brands. I have the quilt designer for quilting and the SE Limited for embroidery. Started with a Rose, then the D1 and now the great SE Limited.
Mmmm... the sewing machines dreams are made of!!
I have the Husqvarna Lilly 550 that is over 11 years old. It may have been superseded a while ago, but I love it and the way it still performs.
I can only dream of owning a new Husqvarna Viking at the moment, but I would not change the Husqvarna for any other brand sewing machine on the market!
Извиняюсь за оффтоп если, что.
Собираюсь себе покупать новое офисное кресло, стоит ли заказывать его в инет. магазине? или же лучше посмотреть в местных магазинах, и попробовать посидеть на них :)
