  1. I have followed your multitude of information on the Gems. So glad you have now branched out. I look forward to reading your blogs.

  2. So glad to have found your blog and now have a face to your name. I have always admired you and how well you handled, sometime very difficult situation in the groups, with such grace and diplomacy. You are much younger than I imagined and so very attractive. Rosemary (Bris,Aus)

    • Rosemary, what a lovely thing to say gosh, you’re going to make my head explode! I very much appreciate your kind comments, and hope you enjoy my blog! Getting ready to cut out my center blocks and do a little embroidery tonight and tomorrow. I’ll post up some photos and a new entry to show everyone how the table runner is coming along.

    • Penolope, I honestly could not tell you if all I post about the Royale would apply to your lovely Designer 1. It’s been a while since I’ve had mine, but I would recommend asking on the Designer 1 list on Yahoo Groups. It’s a great list and supports owners of the Viking Designer 1.

  3. I just bought my husqvarna sewing machine this spring. I didn’t get to take the classes because of being a caregiver to my husband. Is there anything you can recommend for me to learn to use my machine properly? I have the Opal 650. I really want to enjoy using it. Thank you for anything you can telll me.

    • Sure, Elise! I would go to YouTube, and look at Heirloom Creations’ YouTube channel: Search their channel using the word, “Opal”. You should see a series of videos available for you to watch. I still recommend contacting your dealer, and seeing if you can still attend New Owner’s classes for your Opal, if you can now attend. I’m sure your dealer will make an exception, considering the circumstances.
