Here at SewingMastery.com we have wrapped up filming over 95 free video tutorial videos (totaling over 5 1/2 hours!) on the Husqvarna Viking Designer EPIC sewing and embroidery machine. Along the way, we have found some of our favorite stitches, features, and functions that make this machine a MUST-HAVE!
I will never forget the first time I sat down in front of the Husqvarna Viking EPIC sewing and embroidery machine. It was amazing. Everything was smooth, quiet, fast, bright, and easy to navigate. Even while filming all the videos I was reminded of so many things that make this machine truly spectacular.
Fast forward to today. We have taught hundreds of classes with Husqvarna Viking EPIC owners in them. The machines sew like a dream and embroider like a champion. They just work. From day one they have proven themself over and over that they are worth their weight in gold.
1. Speaking of Weight…
The Husqvarna Viking Designer EPIC is one of the LIGHTEST top-of-the-line sewing machines compared to other top-of-the-line machines. Husqvarna Viking spent tons of money, time, and research to reduce the weight of the machine while keeping it smooth and quiet during full sewing speeds.
2. Automatic Needle Threader
The Husqvarna Viking Designer EPIC needle threader is as smooth as it gets. Set the thread into the guide and press the button – DONE.
3. Extra LARGE Throat Space – 12″!
The space between the needle and the inside of the Husqvarna Viking EPIC sewing machine is a full 12″. One of the largest available today. A larger sewing machine bed helps with free motion quilting as well as offering a full 10″ wide embroidery area.
4. Specialty Decorative Stitches
The Husqvarna Viking EPIC sewing machine has an entire area dedicated to exclusive specialty stitches. These stitches include Sequin stitches, Pop Up stitches, Themed stitches, Dimensional stitches, Crystal stitches and Applique stitches.

Included in the Husqvarna Viking EPIC sewing and embroidery machine is over 100 video tutorials. Whether you need a refresher on how to insert a zipper, need to know which stabilizer to use with fleece fabric or how to stitch an appliqué
6. Built-in WiFi Capabilities

7. Best Embroidery Positioning Options
The Husqvarna Viking EPIC has the most precise embroidery positioning options. Aligning repeated embroidery designs is super easy with the built-in Design Positioning function. You practically can “hoop crooked” and the machine will do the rest to realign to the perfect position.
8. Instant Notifications with the mySewMonitor
Set your phone with the free mySewMonitor app to be notified with embroidery designs finish, when to change thread, when bobbin thread runs low and even when a thread break has occurred. Save time by letting the mySewMonitor app keep an “eye” on your embroidery progress for you.
9. Color Block Sort – One of my favorite features!
When embroidering multiples of the same design in a large hoop, use the Color Block Sort to have the machine stitch all the same color sections at one time. For example, it will stitch all color #1’s at once without stopping then stitch all the color #2’s. Load up an embroidery hoop will lots of the same design and only have to change color a few times!
10. UNLIMITED Embroidery Fonts!Download the free Husqvarna Viking complimentary Quick Font software to add fonts to the EPIC machine. Fonts can be a wide range of sizes, fill stitches, appliqué options, satin outlines and single outlines. Truly unlimited!
