They probably have an upgrade to offer?

I need a replacement for my floppy drive.

Check with some long time Husqvarna Dealers and see if anyone has upgraded any Designer 1's from floppy drive to USB. I have kept all of the used drives that I removed from upgraded machines and I sell them as used at a reduced price.New drives are available to authorized repair centers. They will cost quite a bit.You can also have your machine updated to USB.My recommendation is to find a used drive.

I would like to find a machine that monograms and does not cost over $500. All I want to be able to do is the traditional 3 letter monogram (larger letter in center) or a child's name, such as Charlotte...

My advice is to try going to a shop that sells machines and gives lessons for free. I bought from JoAnn's and they gave me lessons on it. I bought a Brother for $549 and I am not sorry because I actually know how to use it thanks to the girls at JoAnn's. I would not be using all of the features if I didn't have the hands on instruction. The manual is great for a refresher but nothing beats doing it and someone answering your questions. Think about it before you buy online, you may save a few bucks but in the long run you will be happy to have a relationship with people who care if you have a problem and can help you.

I need an owners manual for a White Classic 312.

When I called 800-446-2333 I was told that I needed to go to the Singer website (, mouse over Customer Support, click on Instruction Manuals. In the search box, put in the first letter of the manufacturer plus the model number. In my case I was looking for the manual for the White Classic 312, so I typed in W312. The manual is a free PDFdownload.

Is this machine worth buying attachments for it. b c d cams and assorted feet? Cost would be around 50.00

Depends on how much sewing you plan to do, what kind of sewing (embroidery, etc.) and the condition of the machine. If everything else works I would invest $50. The Viking 1 machines are getting old and parts are hard to come by and may be quite expensive. If you plan to do lots of sewing, I would look around at the cost of replacement machines to make the cost/benefit analysis of repair/upgrade. Lots of people still use these machines, especially for quilting. When they are in good condition they are great machines.

What is lastest version of artlink w/ 180e to use with new .ART files

Yes you can use V4.0 artlink it is available in some markets upto V5 it just depends what version the designs were done in. If it was higher than V4.0 you may still have an issue. Have a look at some of the programs like Embird for more cost effective ways to edit designs but you will still need Artlink to load designs onto the machine.

Can't read my disk that I read in the sewing machine. Want to combine words and designs to put on my machine and embroider it.

What software are you using? You need to read the disk back to your PC in Disk Manager (VIP, 3D or 4D software) or use the input/output of Embird, if that is what you have. The disks that are used in the Designer 1 are not able to be read directly by a PC in Windows Explorer because they are in sewing machine language, not PC language. You can combine designs and lettering on the Designer 1 machine, without having to use PC software at all. Let me know if you need help with this.
