So i'm gonna invest in an Emerald 183. It has like 83 different stitches and pretty much i love it. Question though---
Ive never purchased a viking, in fact i've only ever had a ricaar.
so anybody think its a good choice? it costs 800 bucks but i think i can pull it together.
and opinions?Huh

I have the Emerald 116 (not computerized and fewer stitches). I love mine! I've also thought about upgrading, which Viking allows you to do within a year of purchase. I didn't think I was going to do decorative stitching, but finding out that I'm more interested in it than I was before. The engine runs smoothly.

Before I had a Singer from the 70's and a Kenmore from the 60's. Both hard-working, but I was looking for an excuse to buy a new one. Before this, I bought the Huskystar, but did not like it and upgraded to the Emerald.

HTH

Disclaimer:  I work for Viking  LOL

The 183 is a great machine, and probably the one that "comes back" the least often.  Very few people upgrade from that one, and I've never had one come in for repair.

I don't know if that's helpful or not.  LOL

I have a Viking 183 and you will love it.  It has alot of stitches and don't let them talk you into the sapphire because the viking has as many features the only thing it doesn't have is the self threading bobbin.  I brought mine in August.  I wouldn't trade up it's a great machine.
