I have card, plate and book with design, but no instructions. Does anyone know how to use this?
Husqvarna Viking 1+ sewing machine...(NOT Husqvarna Viking 1)
I have a programmable card (not the original Embroidery card that came with the machine...a Viking 1+, which incidentally won't ) and used the reader/writer box and a software
program to create and program a file I want to stitch out...I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO 'POINT' TO THE CARD SO THE MACHINE WILL STITCH IT OUT! I've looked everywhere...my original book doesn't address this option...The reader/writer doesn't either...nor does the software program.
I went to the local Viking shop and the person 'on duty' didn't know, and suggested I wait a couple days until the right person came in.
Anyone know the secret?
Use any card that has the On/Off in the bottom right og the card (1). You have to know what number is you design so you can push that number after selecting on/off. Make sure you programmed emb card is in the machine. You can use another card if you do not have the generic numbered card with on/off and the hoop positioning E on the right side of the numbers 1 to 35 designs.

You can have replacement discs ordered from Husqvarna Viking. Visit an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for them to order the replacement discs. However, you might luck out and they have some already on hand from a scrapped machine or a trade-in. You can find your nearest dealer by visiting the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com and clicking on dealer link down the left side of the page.
Hi - I think you have a Viking Designer 1, which has a slot for a floppy disk on the side of the machine. If so, you need to purchase embroidery software that supports file type .sv1, and you will need to buy floppy disks.
You can buy embroidery software from Viking that will allow you to write design files onto floppy disks, but you can find other embroidery software packages that support the D1 which cost quite a bit less - make sure that file type .sv1 is supported before you buy.
Viking does sell designs that come on a D1 floppy disk. You can just pop the floppy into the machine, select you design, and go. You can find Viking designs online from time to time, but before you buy, ask if a floppy is included - the newer Viking design packages come with a DVD but might not include the floppy for the D1.
Hope this helps, Ginny
If you have a Viking #1+, you won't be able to use floppy disks with your machine. Please repost and I'll tell you what to look for.
embroider on #1+:
If it's a #1+ I recommend the Q (the spring works better) it's hard to put on, but worth it.
Here we go:
1>Turn off machine (always when installing or removing embroidery unit)
2>Install Q Foot. Always leave presser foot pressure (on left end of machine) at 6 for presser foot Q
3>Insert Embroidery Card
4>Insert Embroidery cassette (matching #’s with card)
5>turn on machine
6>Turn on embroidery unit (on cassette)
7>Thread for color 1
8>press reverse to start the machine embroidering....weeeeeeeee!
You can find this information by touching the configuration icon (this looks like pliers). The item that shows you how many sewing hours is called Timer. You should know that this can be reset to 0 by anyone.
Designer 1 bobbin case tension adjustment:
When the bobbin runs out, sometimes it bends the bobbin case tension spring. Then tension is too light. Take the bobbin case out of the machine. Tie the loose bobbin thread to the Designer 1 needle plate. Insert the bobbin in the bobbin case. Here’s the tricky part set the bobbin case on the table as if it’s in the machine (Bobbin is visible and sitting horizontal to table top) threaded as if sewing and loose end tied to needle plate (that is removed from the machine). Lift the bobbin case off the table rotate it so that the flat side of the bobbin are vertical to the table and no longer horizontal. Have the bobbin case oriented so that the thread coming out of the bobbin case sprint (slot area where it is put for sewing) is at the top. Lift it high enough that the needle plate is lifted from the table. It should not release thread unless you shake it gently and then a very small amount of thread. The needle plate is the exact weight resistance your bobbin case should have on the thread.
Turn machine off, install embroidery unit, card and button pad. Turn on the machine, press the "on" button on the keypad to turn on the embroidery unit. Select the design that you want to stitch using the keypad, thread the colors in order from the list in the book, change colors when the machine stops and prompts for the next color.
