Have a Madison - pretty basic, but so far so good. Don't like the bobbin filling though: it's either too tight cause I run it too fast, or fills unevenly cause I don't know why. It's a bit quieter than my old Kenmore but functions about the same.

I have a #1 which is ancient by today's standards, but it is a golden machine. It sews beautifully and has never had one thing go wrong on it. I take it in for cleaning and adjustment, and the tecnician always comments on the pristine working condition and the wonderful stitching. I like hand embroidery and really have no interest in machine embroidery at this time, so I really don't see any need in getting a newer machine. I am interested in getting more feet and attachments and am afraid that may be a problem for an older model. Go Husqvarna Viking!

Devon, I have heard the bobbin complaint from many Viking owners- must be a trait of these machines, LOL

I love my Rose.

Oh, I wouldn't trade either of mine. I put my embroidery unit on the 950E. My daughter wants some onesies with "boob man" on them for my grandson.
Comment by Devon Carberry on May 16, 2009 at 11:26pm
Thanks for commenting, all. Sandy, "boob man"? My grandson is 8. Guess that's the one thing he missed!
I bought a walking foot ($85 for my Madison), but worth it for so many projects. I love it.

Lol, Gage is 8 months old and breastfed. I have walking foot (feet?) for my machines. Only way to go, even with binding. I went many years without one, but once I bought mine, I saw what I'd been missing. do you handpiece? I am working on a Grandmother's flower garden when I am away from the machine.
Comment by Mary on May 17, 2009 at 12:47pm
I have a walking foot which I use for quilting and 9 feet labeled by alphabetical letters, of which I have I have used the zipper foot, the see-through foot, and the foot that jumps over big seams. I use the zipper foot for the hemming stitch even though there is probably a foot for that. I was thinking in terms of a foot for free-motion quilting, a gatherer, a pleater, a shirrer, etc. I retired four years ago and just finished building a special room for sewing. So far, my time has been consumed with remodeling the house and landscaping the yard from scratch. We are not finished with the landscaping yet, but I am hoping to squeeze in more sewing time anyway.

Any of you viking users with 3d software ever had trouble getting getting it to work on a new laptop with vista? I found a dongle patch online but can't get it to unzip and work the software on my new lapt top!
Comment by Francoise DUARTE on May 18, 2009 at 8:51am
I just update my 950E for the Diamond and my Embrodery Extra software for the Professional. I am a little desapointed by the software that have to many design on the clipboard that I am sure I will never use as a home sewer. I'd rather have more every thing disigns that we all use every day. But I love it and soon I'll have more time to play whith because I am moving 4 hours North.
