5D on my mind!

I have been waiting so for letting you know about the new HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ Embroidery System. No I can finally tell you more! I have been part of the developing process of this new embroidery system and as a member of the team I have been part of creating the marketing material and sewing samples and that is great fun. (I know; I love my job!) I hope you like what you see of this new Software system both feature-wise and the marketing material and sewing projects!

This week I will show you some of the new features in the HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ Embroidery™/ HUSQVARNA VIKING®  5D™ Embroidery Extra. One of the new functions is called “snap to” and that is a great new thing. What it does is; when you have one embroidery on your work area selected and want to add a text above, or around the design, you click on apply and it will automatically snap to the design, so you do not need to move it to the center of the embroidery design. Very neat! The same thing is happening when you use the frames, as long as the design is selected, the frame will be snapping to the design you have on the work area. It’s magic!

Included this week is the Sewing instruction for the Quilt tag: Made with Love by Mom.

You can easily make changes for your own tag; change the colors to fit your sewing project and select any of the 119 pre digitized fonts, to make it look the way you want.

There are a lot of new embroidery designs included in the HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D Embroidery Software package! See on the sample above. It was made for the aprons on the 5D™ Embroidery package.

Another highlight  is the Encore using Shapes! Use any of the 20 different shapes that goes with the 5D™ Embroidery, and play with your designs, it’s fantastic. Here is an example so you can see what it looks like.

I will be coming back to the 5D™ Embroidery system further on in my blog, with more of how to work with the new features in the HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ Design Creator.There are so many new cool things to try out.

Kerstin 60 years!’

Kerstin have been sewing most of the sewing samples for the 5D™ Embroidery system. She had her 60th birthday last week, and was out of the office on vacation. Here is how we prepared her office for her return.

We put embroidery threads on her whole desk and on top the sewing machines, and we also put a mannequin with a wig as chair, so when she showed up, she was very surprised to find a person sitting on her chair.

Hope you like my idea to sew the sweets with a four thread overlock stitch to create a decoration. I was in a hurry when I sew it otherwise I think it would have been even better if I would had used a ribbon to add in the stitch. It can a perfect Christmas tree decoration too, don’t you agree?

This weekend I will travel to France, and be part of a Dealer meeting in Avignon. My main task will be to present the 5D™ Embroidery System!

Happy Sewing!
