Posted by Husqvarna Viking
HUSQVARNA VIKING®, a global leader in the sewing industry, announces its newest innovations to the brand’s established DESIGNER™and TOPAZ™ lines – the DESIGNER RUBY ROYALE™ and DESIGNER TOPAZ™ 40 sewing and embroidery machines. Boasting industry-leading, built-in convenience features, both new machines inspire endless creativity while ensuring quality results.

Specifically, the DESIGNER RUBY ROYALE™ sewing and embroidery machine comes equipped with the patented deLuxe™ Stitch System for specialty threads; an all-new, interactive, high-resolution, color touch screen; and the industry-first Dimensional Stitches technique, previously only available on top-of-the-line HUSQVARNA VIKING® machines, which allows consumers to create stitches at the point where they add fabric for unique 3D effects.

And the DESIGNER TOPAZ™ 40 sewing and embroidery machine has earned a coveted Consumers Digest “Best Buy” rating for sewing and embroidery machines. The DESIGNER TOPAZ™ 40 sewing and embroidery machine joins the existing and award-winning TOPAZ™ line, which includes hallmark products like the DESIGNER TOPAZ™ 50 and DESIGNER TOPAZ™25 machines, the latter of which also received a distinguished “Best Buy” from Consumers Digest. According to the publication, in general, products receiving a “Best Buy” rating merit special attention from consumers based on their combination of eight criteria: performance, ease of use, features, quality of construction, warranty, efficiency, styling, and maintenance and service requirements.

“We’re delighted to introduce the innovative new features that both the DESIGNER RUBY ROYALE™ and DESIGNER TOPAZ™ 40 sewing and embroidery machines offer today’s sewers,” said Katrina Helmkamp, CEO of SVP Worldwide, source of the HUSQVARNA VIKING®, SINGER®, and PFAFF® sewing machine brands. “These machines are wonderful additions to our storied and technologically-savvy HUSQVARNA VIKING® brand, giving seasoned and aspiring sewers and embroiderers the tools they need to make their creative visions a reality.”
