I own a Husqvarna 1+ and a pfaff creative performance. When I bought the Husqvarnia it only had a few stitch cards to go with it, and I have been searching high and low for more. Ebay, craigs list, even put a few adds in newspapers across the state- no luck. Even contacted the Husqvarna company in Germany...no luck they are n o t making them anymore. They suggested I try ebay:( I finally got a suggestion from a fellow embroiderer to get what is called 'Ultimate box'...so I did the inernet research on it and found a company that doesn't just s e l l you the box. They get the specified information you have- brand, year, what you are using it for- is given to an experienced software specialist (because each situation has unique needs:) and they let you know how the needs can be met:) The company I went through is named All Brands. I spoke to Vernique, a customer service representative. She explained that in order to download from the pfaff to the Husqvarna the software had to be set up, and I also purchased a Rewritable blank memory card. I ordered a rewritable blank memory card and a Vikant ultimate card 3 for the husqvarnia Viking 1+ . One thing I asked was ' If I have problems, can I contact you?' She said I could call the company all I want, and the staff is always willing to explain step by step:) All brands is located in Louisiana. The phone number is 1 800 739 7374 and the site is www.allbrands.com/products . You can also visit them on facebook at www.facebook.com/allbrands1976
It also comes w a Wilcom thread converter download and creative drawings my editor embroidery edit sizing. I no longer have to be digging in the inernet for the stitch cards. Depending on the size of the embroidery you download, the cards will hold 30 to 50 designs. Well, I hope this helps somebody:) The husqvarna is a wonderful machine and it was worth every penny.

As long as you want to utilize your old machine these are the steps you have to go through. Did that with my old Pfaff 7570 until I'd saved enough to buy a Janome350e....so much easier now. Enjoy your machine, I'm still using mine to sew. Also have had good experiences with Allbrands.

I'm so happy you like Allbrands! I don't have an embroidery machine, however I have ordered from this company for years for regular sewing machine and sergers accessories. I have also ordered ironing supplies and all of it without any problems. I have recommended Allbrands too, so thank you for doing the same. And no, I'm not affiliated.
