Question about Husqvarna Lily 540 and 550
Which stitch selection to get the hand look quilting stitch
Hello Joyce Smith
Please refer to page 45 in the instruction manual which can be downloaded for free at this link
Instead of using invisible nylon, if at all possible use invisible polyester thread. It behaves better and does not break during prolonged stitching. Use a "Quilting" needle size 80/12.

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.

SOURCE: Tension and missed stitches
It sounds like one of your clearances in the machine is off. When a machine skips stitches like yours is doing, it does so because the hook responsible for "catching" the thread from the needle is not close enough to the needle so it misses the loop of thread from the needle. If your machine was having a timing problem it wouldn't sew well on any fabric. A clearance problem shows up on certain fabrics at certain times. A few things you could do to try to compensate it would be to use a slightly larger needle and turn your top tension dial down to a lower setting. Move the machine a little slower on the frame or increase the speed of the machine. Either way a trip to your technician will be needed. Make sure you tell him to check the needle to hook clearance.

There is a switch the slides back and forth on the front of the machine at the throat below the needle plate but above the base (around the opening of the machine between the throat and the base). Slide it either left or right depending on where it is now. Otherwise, suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service.
