SOURCE: I'm using the Mega Single Hoop for the Viking

1. If the design came from the internet or a design package, it's possible that it's "center" has not been centered properly. To correct this you need to open the design in the Husqvarna Viking software and click on the "Center in Hoop" icon. That function redefines the center of the design so it will align properly in any hoop that it fits within. If you have 3d software, after clicking on that icon you physically have to put the black crosshair that designates the center in the design, in the very middle of the hoop and then save the design to your computer, then send it to the machine. The 4d software automatically centers the design in the hoop when you click on the icon.

If you have the software and you "combine" any designs together you must always click on the center design icon to recalculate or redefine the center position and then move the design's center to the middle of the hoop before saving the design. This way you center the designs center positoin around the needle position. Meaning that when you hit the start button on the machine, where ever the needle is, is where the center of your design is.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking Designer I breaking needles

Dls8864's suggestion was a very good suggestion - make sure the metal stitch plate is pushed all the way to the back. Also make sure that the thread is feeding freely - if it is catching on something it can cause the needle to be pulled aside and make it break. Does the design fit properly inside the hoop you are using? If the foot and/or needle strike against the side of the hoop, that will cause a breakage. Is the bobbin thread okay - not making a bird's nest underneath?

SOURCE: When trying to embroider on my husqvarna Designer 2 machine, I keep getting the message wrong hoop. I've tried repeatedly to start again, but keep getting the message. What's wrong?

Possibly the hoop is just a tad too small for your design. The hoop needs a certain degree around the edge to move the presser foot. For instance, a hoop that is 5"x7" can only take a design that is perhaps 4.5"x6.5".

Perhaps your machine is not correctly recognizing the hoop.

I have a Viking designer ruby machine. I am trying to embroider a name. I have the right hoop and the design fits the hoop and I keep getting an error message.


Sometimes machines will not work because even though the hoop appears large enough, there is not enough leeway for the presser foot to maneuver inside the hoop. This is a common issue with embroidery machines. The probably answer is to either shrink the design or use a larger hoop.

How can I change the recommended hoop size for small embroidery on my Designer 1?


Make absolutely certain that the length & width of the pattern does not exceed the maximum allowed by the hoop you want to use. If you are close to the limits of these dimensions (say 98x98 for a 100x100 hoop), try resizing slightly smaller (like 95x95) and see what happens.

My Designer I embroidery does not match up, ie: the stem is stitched and the flower or leaves are not embroidered to appear as attached to the stem.


How far off are they? If they are way off, you have a problem with the embroidery arm either it is bumping on something as it sews out, or needs repairs. If they are only a little off, it is a hooping and/or stabilizing problem. Go to Embroidery Library, Designs in Machine Embroidery or the Floriani websites and check out their tutorials.

I have a designer 1. recently when i go to embroider, it starts fine then just goes hay wire and put teh embroider all over the place- not like the pattern. Sound to me like the emb. unit? thanks kathy


Hi Kathy, I'm sorry your Designer 1 is not feeling well.8*( It sounds like to me you need to get your embroidery unit re-calibrated by your local technician. When was the last time you had your machine serviced? Are the designs you are trying to embroider stock designs or your own designs? Have you tried resetting your machine by turning it off and back on again and let the machine calibrate again? (Take the hoop off before you do this and put it back on after you have selected your design) and try it again. Also how old is your machine? They had a recall on Des 1 purchased between 1999-2004 for a power supply problem. The serial # and recall info is on the Viking website at- www.husqvarnaviking.com. Also do you have enough clearance around your machine where the hoop is not hitting anything while it's embroidering that will throw it of big time! Hope something here helps you! If I can help you further you can also email me at- kats2sew@hotmail.com Happy Sewing!! Kathy ( from 1 Kathy to another)

I bought a new embroidery unit for my designer 1 when I but it on it makes e terible noise and says to slide of hoop and clear position for i . embroidery position'But it won't go into embroidery...


Don't know for sure what is happening, but you should not put on a hoop until you are actually ready to embroider. The unit goes on while the machine is turned off; turn on the machine; it will make a noise; you should get a pop-up on your screen to Calibrate the unit. Touch this button, and the arm moves into position ready. Load your design and choose the correct hoop then put the hoop and project on the machine. Also be sure that your design will fit in the hoop selected.

Embroidery arm won't park or go in position on hoop to embroider


You may need to have the embroidery unit serviced. The slide rods in the embroidery unit will get dirty over time and must be cleaned and lubricated. If not, the mechanism can not slide freely and you will be unable to keep the unit calibrated while stitching a design.
You could attempt to disassemble and clean it yourself, but if you bring it to a repair center in pieces or improperly assemble your repair is going to cost a lot more than it will if you go today.

How do you use the Plus Hoop on a Husqvarna Viking "Rose" Sewing Machine?


The plus hoop is a multi positional hoop that allows you you to embroider designs up to 4" x 6". It is essential for monogramming and lettering using your Rose. The Rose hooping system is the same as the 1+, the Scandinavia 300 and 400.

The designs you use must be formatted for the plus hoop. That is, the design has already been divided into two or three elements. Each element is an individual design. For instance, say the design is a long stemmed rose. It would probably be divided something like this: design 1: the flower and the top part of the stem, design 2: The middle part of the stem and the leaves, design 3: the bottom part of the stem.

You would hoop up your fabric to be embroidered, attach the hoop to the machine, set the hoop to position 1, select design 1, stitch out design 1, set the hoop to position 2, select design 2, stitch out design 2, set the hoop to position 3, select design 3, stitch out design 3. You should have a complete design when you're done and everything should match up perfectly!

The hoop is divided up into three squares, 4" x 4". Position 1 square overlaps position 2 square and position 2 square overlaps position 3 square. This overlapping allows the designs to stitch out more smoothly.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions. Carrie
