I just purchased a Viking 835. So excited about it. It's quite a step up from my Janome 509.
So tell me what you like about this machine. I had considered a serger, but decided to get a better sewing machine.We just moved so I' m trying to find time to learn while finishing unpacking.

I would like to hear what others say about this machine model. Thanks for posting it. Husqvarna Viking is worth every cent (I know my old 330 is). Looking to purchase the 835 and it would be the fourth Viking I have bought.

As for sergers, I recently got the low-end Viking serger. But honestly, in the HV machines there is only low-end in terms of price and features; all my Vikings perform flawlessly. If you can get a serger in the future I doubt you would regret getting it. The serger makes anything you sew on a straight stitcher look finished and neat.

Again, thanks for posting the question.
