Question about Husqvarna Designer I
Husqvarna Viking Designer 1 embroidery machine. I have a Do All Quilter's Hoop which I can't use unless my embroidery unit gets a mechanical update by dealer. He has not been able to fix it, can you recommend a solution that I can pass on to him? I would love to use this hoop. Thanks .
I'm a bit amazed that a Husqvarna technician was unable to do the minor adjustment to the embroidery arm - he needs to contact Husqvarna headquarters and ask for instructions. Meantime, you can still use your hoop (which by the way is my favourite hoop - it's a little beauty!). Tell your machine you are going to use the Large Hoop (6" x 9.5" or 150mm x 240mm) even though you are really using the 6" x 6" or 150mm x 150mm Do It All Hoop. Provided you have centred your design before loading it on your USb stick or floppy drive, it should work. However, just to reassure yourself, use the Check Size button on your touch screen to test the outside size of the embroidery and be sure it is not going to foul on the hoop borders. (It is the one on the second screen (press More to access this) once your have loaded your design - looks like little double arrows pointing to the corners of a square. Each time you press this button, the needle will zoom to each outer corner of your design in turn.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much for your feedback on the Quilter's Hoop problem. I did as you suggested putting the Large Hoop 240x150 in the preferences and darn if it didn't work. I have since learned that my technician wants $50.00 for a part he says Husqvarna says my machine needs because it was built before the Quilter's Hoop came on the market. What do you think of that? Thanks again for the solution."
I just got the Quilter's Hoop as a Christmas gift and had the same problem.My money-hungry local dealer (who sold me the machine in the first place!) wanted $75 to upgrade my machine and said it would be at least 2 weeks to get the part. (The last time she told me that, for the dual-feed foot, after waiting more than 6 weeks, I ordered it online -- paid $50 less and had it in a few days!) This time I found a wonderful Brother dealer who spoke to his Viking dealer friend. Said friend ordered part and Brother dealer did upgrade for me -- for cost of part - $15! He also upgraded the machine's software so that it knows I have that hoop. It all works great now. (The part that is actually replaced is the gizmo on the embroidery arm that you fasten your hoop into, which reads the size of the hoop. It isn't that hard to replace and likely any good sewing machine technician can do it, once he gets the part. I watched it being done.) -- Good luck!

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?
