Question about Husqvarna Lily 540 and 550

1 Answer

My Lily 540 always seems to be out of balance. Manual gives instructions, but they don't work. Taking it to the shop means the machine is out for a week and it costs me money. Can't I fix this mayself?

I'm assuming you mean thread tension., Check the upper tension area to make sure you don't have any loose threads or fluff in that area. When there is, the machine thinks the upper thread tension is tight when it's not. Good luck.

How to get the hand look quilting stitch on the Lily 540?


Hello Joyce Smith
Please refer to page 45 in the instruction manual which can be downloaded for free at this link
http://manuals.husqvarnaviking.com/

Instead of using invisible nylon, if at all possible use invisible polyester thread. It behaves better and does not break during prolonged stitching. Use a "Quilting" needle size 80/12.

I am sewing a knit fabric on my Lily 540 and it is skipping stitches like crazy. I have tried adjusting the tension and the stitch length with no success. seem to always have a hard time with getting even...


It sounds like you may be using the wrong needle. For knit fabric you need a ball point needle in order for it to sew correctly. A regular sharp type needle can cause the stitches to skip. Also make sure you have the right size for the type of fabric. Lighter weight fabric needs smaller size needle and thicker types need bigger sized needles.

Also make sure you have the right presser foot and the right pressure on the presser foot to get nice even stitches. A roller foot helps when sewing knit fabrics.
