The history behind Husqvarna Viking sewing machines is quite interesting and unique. Over 300 years ago, in 1689, the King of Sweden built a weapon factory beside the spectacular waterfalls at Huskvarna. In 1872, the factory was switched from firearms manufacture to a more peaceful product-sewing machines. Today, Husqvarna Viking is a well-known name in high-quality sewing machines. Husqvarna Viking produces innovative sewing machines that inspire fun and easy sewing.

Husqvarna Viking makes specialty sewing machines for sewing, quilting and embroidery, as well as combination units. Husqvarna Viking lines of sewing machines include the Designer line, the Platinum line and the Emerald line.

The Designer line includes three different machines featuring the latest sewing machine innovations. The Designer SE features the largest interactive designer screen on the market. This sewing machine is technologically astounding. The computer includes built-in sewing and embroidery advisors, interactive 3D embroidery capability and two USB ports. The Designer I USB is one of the most advanced home sewing and embroidery units on the market. Software upgrades mean that this machine keeps pace with the latest technology. The highlight feature of this model is Husqvarna Viking's exclusive sensor system. The sensor system, known as ESS, senses the fabric's thickness and adjusts itself automatically. This allows the sewer to guide the fabric with both hands and makes turning corners simple.

The Husqvarna Viking Platinum Series is an electronic line of sewing machines with built in memory. The 775 model includes four memories that hold 55 stitches each. The 735 and 715 models have one memory capable of programming up to 30 stitches. The Touch FIX feature allows you to stop and lock any stitch instantly using tiny forward and backward stitches. Built-in spools let you thread twin needles with ease. The Sewing Advisor feature allows you to enter the type of fabric and sewing technique into the machine's computer and the sewing machine will automatically choose the correct stitch, stitch width and length and the proper sewing speed.

Husqvarna Viking's Emerald line are three basic, traditional sewing machines without all the computerized functions of the Platinum and Designer series.
