We saw for ourselves the amazing ability of the Viking sewing machines to sew through layers (13, I believe) of denim and even harness leather, how it cuts its thread and doesn't make horrible knots if sewn off the fabric, along with learning about the sensor sewing system and the fabric adviser. If that wasn't enough, the features we used to do our embroidery took us over the top. We all practiced design positioning and used it to monogram stadium blankets.
Designer Diamond deLuxe sewing machines are being phased out, to be replaced by the Designer Diamond Royale. We are anxiously awaiting their arrival, since there are very few new Diamond deLuxes around. We may have the last two and they will be shipped out today. The good news is that the new Royale will be coming and in the meantime we have lots of really nice used machines, including a Designer Diamond, Topaz 30 and several Designer SEs.
