Hi everyone,

Do any of you use a Husqvarna Rose machine and if you do, do you Quilt on it, ive brought a quilting foot to go on it but a can not work out if ive fitted it on right and dont know what dials buttons i have to press to work out how to free motion quilt with it. Any help much appreciated tried my manual but i think its been wrote in fluent swahili or im being thick (which is much more likely).

lots of love

 Frances, Rose if that is the one up from the Topaz  It should show you in your manual,on mine I bring up the Menu on the screen and it has a line for Free motion quilting on it. then all i have to do is lower the feed dogs.  but I do have a topaz.

Frances, I may be no help as I have the Sapphire. I put on the FM foot. Press the little icon tool button and scroll to select the Free Motion Quilting. Then I have to manually lower the feed dogs.

I agree with you about the owner manual. It's good if you already know how to work the machine and just need to refresh your memory. But, it's not that great if you don't have any idea what you're doing and need to start from scratch.

Did you buy from a dealer? They should be willing to sit down with you to learn those things. When I bought my Sapphire the dealer took all the time I needed to teach me the machine and was very patient with my numerous requests for help.

Thank you ladies,

But yours are more upmarket than mine, i normally just do straight stich and thats it im trying to branch out and get the best from my machine, at this rate i may well go to my Bernina.

Judy, no mines not from a dealer i brought it off ebay about 4 years ago it was the only way i could have afforded it, the bernina was my mums and is nearly as old as i am but still works like a dream.

lots of love

Frances, I have a friend with a Rose.  At least, hers has a little enamel rose on the front. If i can remember, I just got back from holidays, I'll ask her and get back to you.  She quilts on hers but I don't know if she does free motion.

Frances, Cathie says that you need to put the stitch lenght to zero, install the free motion quilting foot and drop the feed dogs.  the lenghth of stitch is determined by how fast or slow you move the fabric.  If you have any other questions, let me know and i'll ask her.

Judy, I have a sapphire as well, and I've noticed just in the last week that my bobbin doesn't alert me when it's out of thread anymore - have you dealt with that?  I don't know whether it's a sensor problem or something I've inadvertantly done to change a setting....just wondered if you knew anything about it.    I'm going to get my baby checked on after the holidays....lol

Mary, my Sapphire doesn't have that feature. Wish it did. I have the 830 and it's about 3 years old. When chain stitching little pieces, I'll sew merrily along not noticing my bobbin is out of thread. Once, I'd done about 40 little HST, mind wandering and when I came out of my fog I noticed none of them were sewn together!

Mary, I don't have the machine that you do, but I have had the same problem.   The problem was that fuzz and lint built up around the sensor so it couldn't see when the bobbin was low.  The fix was to clean out the bobbin area with a brush and the company strongly suggested vacuuming it out each time you replace an empty bobbin.  I also use a thread that is low linting.  I use aurafil or superior threads.   Hope this helps.  My machine in a Babylock Symphony.     Ginny

Thank you, Ginny - I have been trying to keep the area clean but I haven't actually vacuumed.  It probably wouldn't hurt!  I've been using a lot of black thread lately and that causes more fuzz in the bobbin.

Hello Frances,
I know i'm a little late but I quilt with a Husqvarna Eden Rose.  I normally put on the FM foot (it just pushes in, there are no buttons or screw you need to worry about), manually drop the feed dogs, then go into the settings (little tool looking button) and select free motion. It will then tell you to set your thread length at 0, and you can be on your way. I hope this helps. I love my little rose for quilting! it's the most "high end" machine I've owned to date and i think i'll keep her forever =D

i thought the same thing, dani, when i got my designer 1,   unfortunately, although the machine works great, still,   the touch screen is going out and the machine is getting so old, i am afraid they will stop making parts for it.
