I've been sewing recreationally for the majority of my life. I just recently needed to get a new machine because my singer was shooting craps. Luckily, I found a used Hasqvarna Viking #1+ at a local sewing shop. It only had 1 card, the cord, pedal and we thought 3 feet. We did our research and found this to be a very good machine. We went back and got it for $200. On the way home, I discovered a secret compartment that held 16 more feet including the electronic button h*** sensor. Needless to say, I was thrilled with the find. Through ebay, i've found the embroidery attachment, a hoop, three more cards, the manual and some more bobbins.
Needless to say, if anyone has used this machine before and have any tips, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Happy Sewing!
