The H foot is the Teflon coated foot and it is used when sewing foam, plastic, plastic coated fabrics, leather and imitation leather.
Yes, you can get a darning foot for the Lily. My foot catalogue shows part number 412 54 17-45 and it is called the Darning/Quilting foot. It has a clear oval shaped "foot" and a spring lever which is placed above the needle screw. When I owned a Rose (sister to Lily!) I actually purchased a Brother foot that was exactly (and I mean EXACTLY) the same as this foot for half the price of the Husqvarna one. So if you have a Brother dealer handy, try there.

How to remove top cover of lily 550


Make sure the presser foot is in the up position. This will open up the tension disks. It takes a lot of patience to remove imbedded thread. Use tweezers to grab the thread. Rock the handwheel backwards and forwards to help release the thread. If all that fails, have it cleaned by an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. You can find your nearest dealer at the viking website - http://www.huqvarnaviking.com/us

When piecing a quilt top, my Husqvarna 550 lily Sewing Machine will not plow through seams or double thick fabric. It gets stuck. Help


You need to give it a helping hand over the thick seams. There is a gadget called a jean-a-ma-jig which could help.
Or sew up to the seam, leave the needle in the thread, lift the pressure foot, then insert a thick piece of card from behind to make the foot level with the seam, lower the pressure foot then sew.
The idea is to make a level surface instead of a bump to sew over. Improvise any way you can.

Missing a foot pedal


Check with your local Husqvarna Viking dealer. That is what they are there for.
The foot control is a little pricey for that machine, but why would you want to take a risk on cheapening your experience with your machine that you "ADORE" by trying to take the cheap way out in getting a part for it.
Get what you need and continue to "ADORE" your machine.

Viking Lily - free motion quilting - thread loops on underside.


I need more info.
>Where is your presser fooot pressure set(1-9) it should be around 4?
>How fast are you free motioning (faster is better? from 1-10 10 being full speed.
>Is your bobbin threaded correctly (I need to cover the basics.)?
>Never never use a needle smaller than a 90/14 for free motion (I know everyone's an expert...but trust me)
After all this, it's OK to tighten your tension up on top a little when free motioning and getting eyelashes/spider webs on bottom. around 6 should do it though.
