SOURCE: Husqvarna bobbin thread jamming
Make sure the bobbin thread "clicks" into the tension slot. However, thread nests underneath are usually caused by the top thread, not the bobbin. Make sure your thread is seating itself in the top tension disks. To do this, put the spool on the machine, pull off about 12 or 15 inches of thread, then hold this thread down with one finger on your right hand as you take the thread tail through the threading path with your left hand. When you get to the needle, tug the thread (still holding it down up top) to be sure it seats in the tensions disks. You must also have the presser foot UP while you do this to ensure that the tension disks are open. Watch the first thread guide after the spool as you sew to make sure the thread is not jumping out of there (a common problem with Des1 machines, fixed with SEs - no comfort to you and me!). I have put a small piece of tape across there with the end turned back on itself so no sticky bit is going to catch on the thread.

I assume you are doing free motion quilting? Use the V Menu, choose the first stitch. If you are using the Q Sensor foot or the spring free motion foot, go into the Set menu, hit "More" twice then turn On for either the Q Foot or Free motion. Make sure you have Needle Down turned on (top right-hand button on the left side above the needle). You might need to loosen the top tension by one or two clicks - first screen of the Set menu, under the picture that looks like DNA. A Size 90 needle is probably best and if the quilt is difficult to move about you might like to either use the Sewing Advisor to set for Heavy fabric or lessen the upper presser foot pressure - Set menu once again, next picture after the DNA. I have never had to do this with my D1 but I know some other people have. Get back if things are not working well for you.

Take it back to the repairer to look out so you don't void any warantee.......phone first to arrange a convenient time to discuss.

You need a torx #6 screw driver to loosen the screws on the back of the threader, (I use magnifying goggles to see the threader) then put the threader in the down postion and look to see and make sure the hook of the threader goes through the eye of the needle. Holding the threader in the down positon with the hook sticking through the eye of the needle, tighten the screws on the backside of the threader, Double check it (slowly) to be sure it didn't move while you tightened the screws.

Assume you are loading your designs using Organizer? Yes? I have very limited experience of this, preferring to use Disk Manager (but you need to have this program which I am guessing you don't).
It is my understanding that Organizer will only load one design to an embroidery media, not a whole menu of various designs. However you obviously are not "seeing" even one design. Did a pre-loaded Husqvarna card come with your machine? I think it should have, but if it didn't then that doesn't help you very much either.
I am wondering if the D-card is not "formatted" for embroidery recognition. The Designer machines like to receive their designs in a certain file arrangement but I'm afraid I can't offer you advice on how to format the card - I do my formatting through Disk Manager.
However, while I was writing the above it did occur to me - are you loading designs that are the .shv format? Your machine will not recognize .hus, .vip, .vp3 or any other format. Please write back to this group and let me know if any of the above was useful to you. I belong to a Yahoo group that deals exclusively with Designer machines, so I will ask the group members if they can come up with any helpful advice.
