Madly Successful!

Madly Successful, the theme of the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Convention 2011 in Reno!

The HUSQVARNA VIKING® convention 2011 in Reno, was fantastic. There was only one thing that was not good and that was the internet connection, I was not able to open or send anything. (Sorry!)

We have launched a new top of the line sewing and embroidery machine, the new HUSQVARNA VIKING® Designer Diamond deLuxe™. Wow, with new innovative features such as the deluxe Stitch System™. The unique HUSQVARNA VIKING® deluxe™ Stitch System has two ways to control the needle thread. It will automatically select the best way to improve the balance between needle thread and bobbin thread for your convenience! Thread Portioning will feed the optimum amount of thread for each stitch as the presser foot is measuring the thickness of the fabric when you are sewing or embroidering. You can select thread Tension for specific techniques and/or accessories.

I have been privileged to use it a bit before I went to the convention and one of my favourite things regarding the deluxe™ Stitch System is the possibility to use all kinds of threads, and I have especially liked to use the sliver threads. That has not been possible before as the thread did break quite often. View from my window, with the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the background, as you can see still with snow on the peaks.

All educators were given a piece of silk, and we sewed a jacket. It is truly wonderful to see all the creative ideas. Here is a picture of the embroidery on the jacket I sewed and in some areas using the sliver thread. The embroidery is from the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Design Collection #204- Elegant Art Embroidery.

The HUSQVARNA VIKING® 5D™ Embroidery system, another wow, a fantastic new Free Update, including the new Multi-wave fill type, new Super Fonts, and the support for INSPIRA® cutwork needles in 5D™ Stitch Editor and 5D™ Design Creator. Free Mini Designs called Childstyle and much more! The Free Update are available to download from 24th of May, via Smart Update in 5D Configure.

Happy Sewing!
