Embroidered a premade scarf for myself as a test to see how well it would look for Christmas presents. Design from juju and scarf from a.c.moore


My new to me embroidery machine had to visit the hospital after only owning it 6 weeks. I sure hope it is not a sign to come 😥 But it explains why I had so much trouble with other projects this week.

Thanks for looking,
Hugs,
Lee

In spite of all the problems with your machine, the scarf turned out great. Hope you will not have any future problems with your machine

Hope all your problems with the machine are sorted, it would be so frustrating after a short few weeks of use.However your scarf is super. Sandra.

Wonderful look. What kind of machine? I think any correction should have been free at this point (under warranty).

It's a Viking designer diamond deluxe. They said this repair would be free as I started complaining about it occurring aft only owning it for two weeks and it progressively worsened.

It was shutting off during embroidery and restarting and not quite lining up where it was before it shut off. The feed dogs would not raise so that I could sew with it.....on and on.

They said it sounded like a motherboard problem. I was lucky that the scarf wasn't ruined but many other projects were this past week.

Thanks

I forgot to add that it was still wet when I took this photo. I was too impatient to wait!
