9mm Wide Decorative Stitches

The Husqvarna Viking EPIC 2 now boasts of 9mm wide decorative stitches. Until the introduction of this model most Husqvarna Viking sewing machines had a maximum stitch width of 7mm. Though 2mm does not seam like a lot, when compared side by side the larger stitches win out every single time.

Adjustable Laser-Guided Sewing System

The adjustable laser-guided sewing system offers a laser guide that can be adjusted to either the right or left of the center needle position to help align rows of decorative stitches, space quilting lines evenly and to incorporate with exclusive built-in Pictogram stitches.

Laser Pictogram Stitches

Laser pictogram stitches are possible with the use of the built-in adjustable laser guided sewing system. Create new combinations of decorative stitches not available on any other sewing machine.

Larger Touch Screen

The Husqvarna Viking designer EPIC 2 has a slightly larger, and clear, touch screen than the Husqvarna Viking designer EPIC 1.

Ribbon Embroidery Attachment

The ribbon embroidery attachment is now available for both the Husqvarna Viking designer EPIC 2 and Viking designer EPIC 1. This amazing attachment can embroider with ribbon.

NEW Function Button Layout

I am a fan of the new layout of the Husqvarna Viking designer EPIC 2 function buttons on the head of the sewing machine. Once I got used to the new order of the buttons, I find that the new layout is truly more intuitive.

Multi-Function Foot Control

The multi-function foot control is now available for both the Husqvarna Viking designer EPIC 2 and EPIC 1 sewing machines. Program the toe, the head, and the right and left paddles for a variety of functions such as presser foot lift, thread cut, reverse, tie off, and pattern begin/restart.

Which one is your DREAM machine – the Husqvarna Viking designer EPIC 1 or the Viking designer EPIC 2?

      Hi Sarah,

      Thank you for finding our free video tutorials. The Husqvarna Viking 95Q is just the “sewing only version” of the Husqvarna Viking EPIC 2.

      Please enjoy the sewing video tutorials we have filmed here: https://sewingmastery.com/husqvarna-viking-epic-2/

      You will find the first half of the videos in the link above are on the sewing machine and the second half of the videos are on the embroidery unit.
