Using the button (-) you decrease the tension and using the button (+) you increase the tension. The adjustment affects all stitches and will remain until the machine is turned off. Normal thread tension is 4. When selecting buttonholes and decorative stitches the thread tension is reduced. When topstitching with a coarse thread in thick fabric, increase the tension to 7-9. When the machine is turned on, the tension is set to normal automatically. Correct and incorrect thread tension 1 2 To understand the correct thread tension, sew a few sample stitches at different settings. 1. Begin with a tension that is too loose, i.e. set at "1". The lower thread will lie straight and the upper thread will be drawn down on the underside. 2. If you set the tension at the highest number, the opposite will occur, and the seam may pucker. 14 3 3. The correct thread tension is provided when the threads interlock in the middle of both layers of material or, in the case of decorative stitches, on the underside. Make a few tests on a scrap piece of the material you are going to sew and check the tension. Instruction book Rose Presser foot pressure Procedures The presser foot pressure is adjusted with the dial on the front of the machine. Normal setting is 4. The higher the number the more pressure on the fabric. Knit and Soft fabrics should be sewn at low pressure. Presser foot lever The presser foot is raised and lowered with the presser foot lever.

Slide the hoop under the presser foot - raise up the presser foot lever to take advantage of the extra lift of the presser foot. Slide hoop from the front onto the embroidery arm. Note: Always sew a sample Embroidery on a scrap of the same fabric you will embroider. 7. Raise the presser foot before removing the embroidery hoop from the machine. Press the button located to the right on the hoop and pull the hoop towards you. Note: Always touch CLR before you turn off the machine. Otherwise the embroidery arm will not come to the correct position to remove the unit from the machine. 29 Embroidery Sewing embroideries 1. Put on embroidery presser foot U, see page 27. 2. Place the enclosed net over the thread spool. Thread the machine with embroidery thread as upper thread. In this case you need not place thread under the presser foot. Use a fine thread as bobbin thread. 3. Thread the bobbin thread according to "Threading" on page 13 and check to be sure the thread lies under the tension springs. Cut the thread in the thread cutter. Hint: Slide bobbin cover on, then cut thread. Always check there is enough bobbin thread before starting a new embroidery. 4. Insert the embroidery card. The symbol flashing on the display indicates if the embroidery card is not inserted or not inserted fully. 5. Select desired embroidery motif from the Embroidery booklet. Each embroidery has a number. The buttons 1-35 are used to select embroideries. 6. Start sewing by touching the button or by pressing the foot control. Hold the thread tails when starting. The machine always starts from the center of the embroidery area, sews a starting stitch up to the beginning of the embroidery, sews a few stitches more, gives a ”beep” and stops. A pair of scissors flashing on the display indicates that you can cut the starting thread tail. 7. Touch the button and the machine sews the rest of the embroidery or up to next thread color change. Note: Be careful when working within the needle and presser foot area to avoid touching the start/stop button or the foot control by mistake. Select the number of the desired embroidery on the stitch panel. 30 Instruction book Rose Sewing embroideries 8. The machine stops automatically when it is time to change thread color. The display indicates which thread color change you have reached by a flashing number next to the thread spool . A flashing number indicates the first stitch of the ”new” thread color. The number stops flashing when you begin to sew. During the sewing the embroidery hoop moves to different places within the embroidery, where jump stitches are sewn. Cut off these stitches as you sew, i.e. when the machine stops for thread color change. In most cases the embroidery is sewn over the jump stitches, but in some cases a part of the thread can be visible and difficult to cut off afterwards. If the upper thread breaks while sewing, the machine stops and gives a signal. The symbol is flashing on the display. Rethread the machine. Instruction book Rose The machine stops also when the thread spool runs out. When this occurs, remove the work and the bobbin. Re-thread the machine, replace the bobbin. Go back a few stitches past the point where the bobbin thread run out, using the button. Re-start and the embroidery will be completed. If the bobbin thread runs out, remove the work and the bobbin. Wind and replace the bobbin. Replace the work, pull the upper thread back. Go back a few stitches using the button. Re-start and the embroidery will be completed. To check how much bobbin thread is left, touch CLR. The embroidery arm returns into ready position. Touch CLR to move the embroidery arm back to stitch position and pull the upper thread back. After finishing the embroidery sewing: 1. Remove the embroidery hoop by pressing the button to the right on the hoop. Pull the hoop toward you. 2.

Push in the plate between the button and the fabric. Lower the presser bar and sew on the button. Pull the threads between the button and the fabric. Wind the threads a few times around the shank and tie the ends. 38 Instruction book Rose Straight stitch Straight stitching is used to join fabric which does not stretch and for seams which will not be subjected to great strain. When you select straight stitch the machine will automatically set the average stitch length. Experiment until you arrive at the exact setting for the actual work you will be doing. Example: Increase the stitch length when basting and when topstitching. 25 Needle Positions Sewing When topstitching using straight stitch and reinforced straight stitch, the needle position can be adjusted in steps. Use the stitch width button (+), 0 is the center position, width 6 is left needle position, width 6 mirror imaged is right needle position. To return to center position, use the stitch width button (-) and step back to 0. Adjust the width between 0-6 for additional positions. To edge stitch, you should take advantage of the possibility to set the needle to the left or the right position. To sew about 2 mm from the edge, snap on presser foot A when sewing light fabrics and presser foot D for other fabrics. Place the fabric and sew so that the edge follows the inside right edge of the presser foot D or the first mark of the left edge of the presser foot A. If you wish to sew about 5 mm from the edge or sew a narrow hem, use presser foot A and set the needle to the right position. Instruction book Rose Place the edge of the fabric so that it follows the outside right edge of the presser foot and sew the hem. 39 Gathering with straight stitch Use a slightly longer stitch than normal straight stitch, 3.5-5.0. Always sew two gathering threads next to each other. Sewing 1. Pin the gathered part to the corresponding garment section. Make sure that the marks and the seams correspond to each other, or match notches. 2. Pull both bobbin threads from the same direction and distribute the gathering evenly. When half the distance is gathered, wind the threads around a pin. Then gather the other half from the other direction. Distribute the gathering evenly. 3. Join the pieces with straight stitch, the gathered material facing up. Sew between the straight gathering rows. Hold the gathering with your fingers on both sides of the needle to avoid folds. Remove any gathering thread that is visible. 40 Instruction book Rose Sewing zippers The zipper foot E can be snapped on so that it is located either to the right or to the left of the needle, making it easy to sew both sides of the zipper. To sew the other side of the zipper, reposition the zipper foot. 1 Lapped zipper 4. Snap on the zipper foot so it is to the right of the needle. Set the needle to the left position. Turn the garment to the right side. It is important that the seam on the right side is sewn straight. Before you begin to sew, mark the seam line. Sew the other side of the zipper. Instruction book Rose 3 2 Sewing 1. Sew the seam together to the bottom of the zipper placket. Baste the rest of the seam. Leave about 2 cm open at the top. Press seam open. Set the needle to the right position. 2. Place presser foot E to the left of the needle. From the wrong side fold the fabric to one side so both seam allowances are free. Fold and press the left allowance under approximately 0.5 cm from the basted seam. 3. Place the zipper under the folded seam allowance with the teeth as near to the fold as possible and stitch zipper to fabric close to fold. Begin sewing at the bottom of the zipper. Before reaching the zipper pull, lift the presser foot and slide the zipper pull down past the zipper foot. Lower the foot and sew to the top of the zipper. 4 Begin stitching across the bottom and continue upwards. Remove the basting. If you want to sew a ”gentleman’s zipper”, follow the instructions but insert in the other direction. 41 Reinforced straight stitch The reinforced straight stitch is stronger than ordinary straight stitch, due to the fact that it is a triple and elastic stitch. The reinforced straight stitch can be used for heavy stretch fabrics, for crotch seams which are subject to considerable strain and for topstitching in heavy fabrics. Stretch stitch Sewing The stretch stitch makes a pliable, stretchy seam that is suitable for sewing together pieces of light stretch fabric. The stretch stitch is ideal for topstitching in light stretch fabrics. Zigzag The zigzag is utilized for sewing on lace, bound edging and appliqués. When you select the zigzag the machine will automatically set stitch length 2 and width 3. You can change this setting by pressing either the (+) or (-) button on the width and/or length. Experiment until you reach the best setting for your actual work. 42 Instruction book Rose Lace edging 1. Place wrong side of lace to right side of fabric matching edges.

Make sure that the needle sews over the edge of the fabric. Place the fabric according to the presser foot (see picture). Sewing Sewing terry cloth Terry cloth is a rather loosely woven fabric in which seams easily break. Sew the garment together with straight stitch. Trim the seams and press the seam allowance flat and sew the edges down against the garment on the wrong side with three-step zig-zag. Even though the stitching goes right through to the ”right” side of the garment, it is nearly invisible and even the wrong side looks neat. The stitching will also be considerably stronger. Necklines and armholes are finished in a similar way. Mending and darning Three-step zig-zag , can be utilized for mending and darning. A threadbare spot is mended by sewing back and forth with threestep zig-zag. . For Use the reverse feed button every row of stitching, guide the fabric slightly to the side. If the fabric is very worn, a piece of fabric or lining may be attached to the reverse side of the material as reinforcement. 44 Instruction book Rose Flatlock The flatlock , is suitable for sewing overlapped seams and decorative hems. Loosen the presser foot pressure to 2 when sewing stretch fabric. You can produce a decorative hem by folding a single hem to the wrong side and sewing the flatlock from the right side. Trim excess hem to stitching from the wrong side. Sewing To sew an overlapped seam, lap one piece of fabric over the other piece and sew flatlock stitch over the fabric edge on the right side. Trim from the wrong side or sew another seam from the right side. Narrow belts and bands Fold the fabric in thirds and sew in the center. Trim excess material from underneath. Instruction book Rose 45 Blind hem Snap on presser foot D for blind hem. As a general rule the elastic blind hem is used for knit fabrics and the woven blind hem for woven fabrics. Fold the material as shown. Make sure that the fold line of the fabric rides in the groove under the right side of the presser foot. Practice using a scrap of material and compare with the illustrations. Sewing 1. If the stitch does not catch the folded edge, increase the stitch width (+). 2. If the stitch catches too much of the fold, decrease the stitch width (-). 3. For an invisible hem the needle catches a single thread of the folded edge. 46 Instruction book Rose Bridging stitch The bridging stitch is suitable for joining two pieces of fabric with folded edges. Leather and vinyl are joined by butting the edges close to each other using the bridging stitch. Also use to join lace and ribbon. Sew from the wrong side over both lengths of the elastic following marked lines. Gather the shirring by pulling the elastic threads. Seam and overcast Some stitches can be used for seaming and overcasting directly on the edge where a 5 mm (1/4") seam is allowed. Place the fabric so that the inside right ”toe” of the presser foot follows the edge of the fabric. Overlock is chiefly used for sewing heavy stretch fabric. Snap on presser foot B. Overcast stitch, may be used to sew light and medium non-stretch fabric and light stretch fabric. Snap on presser foot J. Overlock stitch is used for medium stretch fabric. Snap on preser foot B. Instruction book Rose Presser foot J is also used to overlock and overcast many different fabrics with the exception of heavy, firm fabrics. The pin on the presser foot should follow the edge of the fabric and will prevent the fabric from puckering. Stitch width 5-6 mm. When using stitch width 4.5 or lower, use presser foot A. 47 Sewing Elastic shirring The bridging stitch is also useful for gathered elastic shirring. Use the buttonhole foot C, tighten the upper thread tension. On the wrong side of your fabric draw lines to sew the stitched rows straight. Remember that the elastic will always be stitched double, so take this into account when calculating how much you will need. Place the shirring elastic (elastic thread) around the finger of the presser foot C. Darning stitch is a perfect stitch for mending and darning. Use presser foot A. 1. Select NORM, sew the first row of stitches as long as you need to cover your tear or worn spot. 2. Touch the reverse button and the machine continues sewing the remaining stitches at the same length and fastens the thread. 3. Touch STOP. Move the fabric so that the needle is right over the last stitch. Repeat as many times as you need to cover the hole. See "Satin taper and darning stitches" page 25.

Replace the bobbin cover. Instruction book Rose 55 Fault-finding Fault-finding Always start by checking the needle Always start with a new needle as soon as you discover that a stitch is not what you expected. Test sew on a scrap of the fabric you are sewing. Check that you have chosen the correct needle and see that it is correctly inserted. See page 16. Unattractive stitches The thread tension is not correct. See page14. Make sure that the thread is not catching. Certain thread spools are unsuitable for spooling from the horizontal spool pin. Try instead with the vertical spool pin. The machine may be incorrectly threaded. Be sure to place spool holders correctly. The correct threading is shown on page 10. Wrong bobbin thread. It should be of the same thickness as the upper thread except when sewing embroidery. The needle breaks The needle can strike against stitch plate and break. Change the needle. See page 16. The upper thread breaks Check the thread spool to see that it has not caught in any way. The needle eye may have sharp edges which cut the thread. If so, change the needle. See page 16. The upper thread is incorrectly threaded. See page 10. The upper thread may have too much tension. Refer to page 14. 56 The hole in the stitch plate may be chipped and have sharp edges. We recommend that you replace it. The bobbin thread breaks The bobbin thread may be incorrectly threaded. See page 13. The stitch plate hole is damaged. See "Upper thread breaks". Irregular thread tension This may be due to poor quality thread. When sewing with cotton thread, increase the thread tension. Irregular bobbin winding The machine is not correctly threaded for bobbin winding. See page 12. The fabric puckers The upper thread tension is too tight. See page 14 for correct thread tension. Use the correct presser foot as recommended by the display. The machine does not feed the fabric The stitch length is too short. Increase stitch length. The feed teeth may be lowered. Raise them by turning the dial to . See page 16. The feed teeth are full of dust and dirt. Clean with the brush. See page 55. Instruction book Rose Fault-finding The stitch is too loose - fabric layers not held together The thread tension is far too loose. Page 14 shows how to adjust the thread tension. Incorrect stitch If the machine does not sew the stitch indicated by the display, it is possible that the electronics have been disturbed in some way, perhaps by a short power cut or electrical disturbance. Shut off the main switch, wait a few seconds and try again. If the fault remains, contact your dealer. Machine runs sluggishly Dirt or lint has built up under the stitch plate. Loosen the plate and brush clean between the feed teeth and in the bottom area. See page 55. Instruction book Rose The sewing and embroidery machine screen does not respond to touch The socket on the back of the machine where the embroidery unit is connected can be sensitive to static electricity when the embroidery unit is not connected. If the sewing machine screen does not respond to touch, turn the machine off and back on again. If this persists, contact your authorized Husqvarna Viking retailer. Expert assistance Have your machine "tuned up" regularly by your dealer. If you have followed the preceding points and still do not get satisfactory results, you should contact the dealer where you bought the machine. When the machine is being checked, it is a great help if it can be test sewn under as similar conditions as possible as when you used it. Remember to take a sewing sample along with you, preferably of the fabric and with the thread you intend to use. A sewing sample will often give much better information than words.
