I’ve reviewed the previous post and comments about the Viking Interlude 445 – but they were from 2004!
I am an experienced sewer who’s gotten very sidetracked and haven’t done much for some time. I collected signatures from wedding guests thinking I’d make a signature quilt for the bride and groom. I want to scan the signatures and import them to a computerized sewing machine … imagining then – voila! I know I could be wayyyy off on the voila part.
I have never used a computerized machine. Have looked at them from time to time. I’d like to be able to scan things into my computer, transfer to a jump drive and plug that into my sewing machine. Is that even possible at any price on any machine?
So I just learned of a Viking Interlude 445 available from a church resale shop for $400. It appears they are no longer in production, and thus current reviews not available. Could anyone weigh in – is there a machine that does my “voila” for me that’s affordable? Or if that voila is not possible on the 445, a decade later, is there a newer machine that I’d be better off with than the 445?
I think I’ve read that the 445 had a good button hole feature, … that needle threader and thread cutting are desirable innovations but couldn’t tell if the 445 has those.
I look forward to your replies.
