I would love to know who makes this machine. I'm not promoting the item in the video, only curious about the sewing machine. If you know what model it is that would be a nice bonus!

I think this is a Janome Horizon. I searched for the curve master presser foot and that is what came up. They are nice. I am a big Janome fan and have a 6600. HTH

I have always said the quietest machines are made by Janome. I don't know why but my janome 300E is quieter than my Brother embroidery machine and my Janome 4900 sews quieter than any other machine I have except for the Elna 740 which is made by janome.

It's a Husqvarna Viking Lily 540 or 545, which is a discontinued model. They were made 10+ years ago. It is part of a great series of models made in Sweden.

I recognized it as it looks like my Platinum, and in any case I could have told you with my eyes shut - it is the Viking motor!That solid wonderful sound a Viking makes while sewing. Love it.

Do all vikings sound like that? It is amazingly quiet. My husband says my Pfaff 6120 is loud, it isn't, it is mechanical, they make noise. It does make a little thump when the needle goes in the fabric but it isn't loud by any stretch of the imagination. I have watched videos of other Pfaff's - both electronic, and mechanical and they sound exactly like mine. My 1222e is quiet as a mouse but I don't want to wear it out so I don't use it much. I was shocked at how quiet and smooth the machine in the video is. I won't be giving up my IDT for piecing anytime soon, though for FMQ I could be tempted.

My Viking Emerald 118 is amazingly quiet. It is a mechanical machine but has always been great and a workhorse.

I think it's a Viking machine. Don't know the model. I didn't think it is so quiet though....it has "whine" sound.

Cynthia just posted this wonderful tutorial on a Ruffled Pillow, and I liked the "sound" of her machine better----

I know what you mean about machine sounds. Some are so quiet. Others are like a diesel truck. The noisiest machine I owned was a Pfaff (currant model, not older)

This is the video first posted.

There may now be several brands that have a model that runs "quietly". I have an older TOL Babylock that is very quiet.

If interested in this "feature", visit as many dealers as you can and take test drives. Then you decide which brand and model is right for you.

I test sewed a Viking Emerald 118 at a Joann's last weekend. It sounded quiet to me and I did not notice a whine. Do only some Vikings whine?
