    I bought a Viking Designer SE today.
    I'm so excited. I've been borrowing it from a friend for a couple months, and she wanted to sell it!
    I can't wait to go play with it some more. It's definitely found a nice home in my sewing room!

    I love mine. My only note is: if you are learning embroidery with it, sometimes you have to look and both the books to figure one thing out. Also, make sure you use embridery needles. You probably already know more than I do. Mine is >2 yearsnew to me and I just did my first script embroidery about 2 weeks ago.

    Congratulations! If you love yours as much as I love mine - you will be happy indeed! I started out with a Viking #1+ and have worked my way "up". Like them so much that I work for my dealer part-time.

    Lucky girl. If you love it as much as I love my two Vikings it will be a life long love affair. I have a Lilly and a 950E. Would love to have a designer, but won't part with the other two.

    Oh, you will LOVE it! I have one and as far as I am concerned, the Vikings are the Best!!! I also have the Topaz 30 & and Designer Diamond. Those 2 have the long throat, great for quilting and those large hoops. Study up on connecting your SE to your computer and downloading designs you customize yourself; nothing better. Oooohhhh!!! Excuse me, I gotta go sew :!: :roll: :lol:
