New-to-me machine


I've been hyperventilating for 2 days now. Saturday I went downstairs
for a couple of hours to quilt. When I came up, David told me my
phone had been ringing off the hook. Turned out my Mom had been
trying to reach me.
To make a long story short, she is now the proud owner of a Viking
Designer SE. And I am about to inherit her Designer 1 and software
and some embroidery designs. (You can see why I'm hyperventilating.)
I cannot believe it. I have a Viking Lily that I love and adore (does
anyone know if all her feet will fit the Designer 1?). And a
reasonably price Brother embroidery-only machine. I like it too
considering how little embroidery I actually do.
When the Platinums first came out, I briefly lusted after one until I
saw the price. I've been happy as a clam with the machines I do have
since then. It has not entered my head for years that I need/want
another machine and now suddenly one has fallen into my lap.
She called again Sunday to tell me she has it all packed up and ready
to go. She briefly thought she might bring it with her on Thursday
when we go to the quilt retreat. But she'll be driving with 2 other
ladies, so the car will be pretty packed. So I probably won't
actually get the machine, etc. for about 2 weeks.
I'm stunned. Just absolutely stunned.

Sandy,
Congrats on the new machine. I went from a Lily to the Designer 2 eons ago. Yes, they use the same feet! have a wonderful time with it.
I use my embroidery unit all the time-- quilt labels, etc. I made a king size quilt for my mother's 80th birthday-- I got the Hummel's and used them for the quilt since my parents have been collecting Hummels since they got married 60 years ago!
Enjoy!!!

Lucky you.
I have a Lily as well. Two years later my Mom upgraded to the Designer SE and I bought, but at a very good price, her Designer I. I drive Bert crazy sometimes when I have an embroidery going at one end of the table and me sewing at the other end. And yes, as mentioned earlier, your feet will work on both machines.
Have fun.

I'm glad to know they use the same feet. I've amassed quite a collection of feet including walking foot and my favorite open toe free motion foot. Now I just hope it will fit my table, which was specially built for the Lily.

I'm sure I will. I'm sure I'll have to post a couple of pictures of my new 'baby"

Super great! I never would have bought a machine with this many bells and whistles for myself. But I can see that it might be fun to have one.
I'm so lucky.
