Sounds like it's tightening the top thread on 'fix'. I'd just backstitch it- some new things are great and some don't work like they should have, it's just how it goes.

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.

12 wt thread


12 wt thread generally will not work well in the bobbin...


"Aurifil 12wt Thread
Aurifil 12 wt thread is ideal for hand quilting, big stitch hand quilting and machine quilting. 12 weight thread creates a more defined and often primitive look. It's great for designs that use a longer stitch length if using a machine. When machine quilting with 12 wt thread, use 40 wt in the bobbin, increase your stitch length, lower your tension, use Topstitch size 90 needles and stitch slowly."

I am trying to sew in free motion, but the bobbin is not feeding problem and I have loose stitches and drag. I have adjusted tensions but this does not seem to improve the problem.


Turn your machine off, then turn it on again to re-set everything back to "normal". Now, go into the SET menu (second page, I think) and turn on Q-Sensor Foot and Free Motion. Go back to the Menu and choose the V Menu, Stitch 1. Lower your feed dogs (personally, I don't do this but all instructions always say to do it). Make sure your upper thread and your bobbin thread are a similar thickness i.e. don't use a 35wt top thread and regular sewing thread in the bobbin - it will be too hard to get a balanced stitch with this combination. Use a new sharp needle that has an eye big enough for your chosen thread. When you load the bobbin, be sure to feel and hear the thread "click" into the tension slot. Use one of the free motion feet - my favourite is the spring loaded metal horseshoe shaped one, but there are several and they will all work. (If you are not using the spring loaded nor the Q foot, go back and turn Q Sensor Foot off in the Set menu.) Make sure ALL the weight of your quilt is supported on your table - any tiny bit hanging over the edge will create drag and make it much harder for you to free motion quilt. Most free motion instructions say to lay your hands on the quilt and glide it around. That has never worked for me. I grab the quilt either side of the bit under the needle and steer it that way. So long as the quilt is well basted, it won't cause puckering. Now, the hardest bit - relax! Remember you are only ever quilting a pot holder - the 6" or so square bit that is actually under the needle. Do that little pot holder and move the quilt and your hands on to the next bit. Sure you may come back to an unfinished bit in order to complete your design, but you are only ever focussing on that small area at the needle. Try to watch where you are going, not where you are presently sewing. Believe me, it works!
If you are still having tension issues, you may need to adjust either the top or the bobbin tension. Do this in small increments only and make a note of where you started from. I try not to alter my bobbin because it has been set by my technician at the best place for regular sewing and embroidery, therefore I have a spare bobbin case that I can fiddle with to my heart's content. If you are going to do a lot of FM quilting this is a very worthwhile investment. Most recently I quilted with King Tut 40wt in the top, Signature 40wt in the bobbin. I had my machine set as above, the bobbin tension was a LITTLE lighter than "normal" and it sewed perfectly. You also need the needle down turned on. Good luck!

Remove thread message in husqvarna viking sapphire 870 quilt


I had this same problem, on my Designer Diamond. I blew it out with an air can and that didn't work, but then I decided to turn it off, then back on and start sewing a line in reverse. That seemed to fix it. My machine is working fine now.

Skipped stitches & looping on the bottom of Quilt


Try a different needle. Use a quilting or topstitch or even a metallic needle - one that has a larger scarf than normal. The scarf is the groove at the back of the needle where the thread goes while the stitch is being formed. Quilting threads often need more "room" there. I have been told that the Inspira quilting needles are good because they have a thread groove on the front and the back of the needle. Not tried them personally but might be worthwhile for you to consider.

For the looping, you could fiddle with your tensions a little either loosening the bobbin tension or tightening the top, or both. Only ever do this in very small increments. But the good news is that even the "professional" quilters do not have perfect quilt backs - just have a look at them at quilt shows!

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.
