Thank you, Marie. I think my new machine and I will be spending lots of quality time together this winter (which it already feels like - here in Wisconsin!).

You're welcome, Linda. We're having a cold spell here in MA as well. Looked out my window this morning to find ice formed all over my car! Not ready for this!
Congratulations! I know you will love the machine. I bought the 870 and once they fixed the glitch it has been humming along. One thing to watch is flannel lint builds up fast and my machine doesn't like that. I have found that most problems can be fixed by giving it a quick vacuum ( never compressed air) and a rethread on top and bottom. The upper thread slips off the guides and snarls. Have fun!
Vivian :The upper thread slips off the guides and snarls. Have fun!
I have the same problem with my Sapphire 835.
hi Linda ! my 36 year old Singer is getting tired and I am getting back into sewing.. I never quilted before, took a class and am fully addicted now! after lots of research I also just bought Sapphire 875Q from the Viking dealer inside the Roanoke Joanns.. I'm new to this area and they don't have Viking stores inside the Long Island NY stores, so needless to say I was surprised to see that.. but very pleased with my purchase.. I got some instruction from the dealer yesterday, played till late last night! I will call and see if I can get another lesson later this week! I haven't even plugged in the foot pedal yet ! the dealer is strong on. not using it, but I think the sensor features are tied to the foot pedal?
Hi Debbie, Welcome to our fun site. It has it's glitches but we have the greatest and friendliest bunch. You should contact Nana on this site.
