Meet Lily

My pre-owned Viking Lily 545, found around Christmastime on Craigslist. It was way more machine that I was looking for but the price was way more than right. It was a steal. My Elna was giving me tension problems (as usual) and it didn’t make sense to put more money into tune-ups that could be better put to a used machine. I just got lucky on this one. My two must-have features were needle-stop down and see-thru bobbin case. The rest of it is just gravy. Lovely Swedish-made sewing gravy. Delicious. I love it.

    Just popping over from Park City Girl… I have a Lily too, and I love her! She’s been my sewing companion for almost 12 years now, we’ve been through a lot together and she’s still going strong!
    Best wishes to you and your new “friend”…

    […] block and is going nowhere. I started quilting my nephew’s quilt but I’m not happy with Lily’s tension. I just can’t get it right. She may have to go into the shop. Not a bad idea since […]
