Question about Husqvarna Designer I

1 Answer

My Viking Designer 1 wont stitch the Omnigrid stitches (S on the menu) properly. It seems like one side of the design stitches OK, then the other side doesnt line up with the first part. Is there any adjustment that i can make without having to send it in for repairs?

Yes there is. Go to the SET menu and look at the Balance icon. There is a plus and minus choice. By trial and error (only click once or twice at a time) you can adjust how the Omnimotion stitches sew out. You should always use a stabiliser underneath when you are doing these stitches - it helps a lot! There is an excellent and not expensive booklet available through Secrets of Embroidery website and written by Carolyn Duncan that deals exclusively with Omnimotion stitching. She prefers to program these stitches and use her embroidery hoop, but gives good advice on how to sew them directly at the machine.

It is possible but it will only sew a straight stitch (more than likely a 2.5MM stitch length which is a common/standard length for straight stitching.

My husqvarna designer 1 keypad doesnt work


It could be the Touch Screen. If it is a Designer 1. If it is a Designer II or Quilt Designer or #1 it could be the Dcard. Recommend it be checked by an Authorized Viking Dealer.

Is this a Designer 1 or #1?

If Designer 1, you will probably need to have the link spring in the feed mechanism replaced by an authorized dealer.

Why won't a brand new stitch D card work in Viking Quilt Designer? Just makes nosie, will not do stitch. Other cards working fine.


Stick with me and I'll see what I can find out.
In the mean time, verify that you are able to do card E1 stitch 24 and card E2 stitch 27. I think you can, but let me know.

Free motion quilting Viking Designer 1


I had the same dissatisfaction when I switched from the 1+ to the Designer 1. After some trials I am now happy. You need the springy free motion foot. Part #413 03 76-45. You take off the white shank and screw it on with the metal bar over the needle hook. In the set menu turn the SensorQ on, the free motion on, select stitch 1 from menu V and drop the feed dogs. It also makes a big difference to use the straight stitch throat plate which just has a small hole for the needle to go through. One other hint is that I often have to reduce my needle tension 3 or 4 steps. Hope it works for you.

Free Motion Sewing - Jams


The Designer 1 usually has a very nice free motion stitch using the V1 stitch. It should pull only slightly to the rear so that no bobbin thread shows while doing free motion embroidery. Upper tension may be increased for balanced stitch when stippling.
If your machine doesn't sew with the regular stitches with the teeth up, and it's properly threaded, the thread must be dragging on the bobbin case somewhere. First get the machine sewing a straight line, then try V1 again.
