    New thread injector...

    Might be pulling the trigger on a new machine today, a Husqvarna Viking Emerald 118. I demoed it yesterday and it is such a smooth machine, I was in love

    I'm having so much fun making stuff I figured it was time to invest in a new rig

    Nevermind, found a limited edition Husqvarna Viking Madison for an outrageous price and scooped it up, picking her up this weekend. Never in my life thought I would be so pumped for a new thread injector

    Good deal there Yukon. The ladies at our local Joann's store speak very highly of the Husqvarna brand. Enjoy it!

    That's one of the reasons I went with it, the ladies at my local place said the same thing

    One word of caution... Husquevanna (Viking) is a proprietary parts comany. In other words only approved dealers can get repair parts. My local mechanic does not work on them for that reason. They are very high end machines with excellent track records.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Yeah that was one thing they had said, they would have to be the ones to work on it should the need arise. Not a problem for me since the shop is less than 5 minutes from my workplace, so I'm cool with that trade off to get such a nice unit.

    Been running on a Viking 1 for some time and it works wonderfully. Feels funny to really only straight stitch when it has about a million buttons for everything else!
