    I don't consider
    the Rose old. Chk with dealer. I have one that I love for sewing, FMquilting. It makes beautiful decorative stitiches I do craft show). Sews all thread well. It isn't user friendly tho on the embroider part which is why I bought it. Finally bought a $500 embrodery mahcine & upgraded to Brother PE700. The PES format is radily available & lots of freebies on net. I would advise putiing money in embrodery machine only. Chk all brands.com They have good sales & I have good service from them Good Luck

    a lot of times you can find the manuals on ebay for these machines. I have a viking #1 which is similar and I see it's manual up there all of the time. Check ebay for just about anything for these old vikings.

    Also; go to sewmuch4retirement.com and they have all kinds of things for vikings. I bought a cd for my #1 that has tons of stuff on it.

    You are so lucky! The Rose is a great machine - I have had mine for 14 years and I love it. The Rose was still manufactured in Sweden and is a very good quality machine. From what I understand, the designs can be customized using the "Amazing Magic Box" but I haven't tried that yet. I think you can buy design cards on ebay. Also, I think the manual is available online (not sure where). The Rose is also known as the Husqvarna Viking Model 600. Good Luck!

    Vikings are very good machines. If I were you - would order manual, contact a viking dealer and order 4D Reader/writer kit. This kit contains a programable card and the reader/writer that converts formats into hus which is your format for the rose. If I can be of further help send message.
