View Full Version : She is here at last.. my Ruby

July 25th, 2012, 01:45 PM
Helloo everyone..

I just have to tell you, that my sewing-dream I dreamt for the last 20 years today came true at last...

When I started sewing about 20 years ago, I saw that Husqvarna Machine and fell in Love immediately. Since then I had the dream that one day I would buy a Husqvarna.

Well, in the last weeks my Brother (innovIs900) did some funny things, I really didn't like, and it made "click" in my head..
I had looked around for a while, and then I decided, Yesss Now is the Time...

So I ordered my Husqvarna Viking Ruby last thursday, and this morning it arrived..
I am soooooo happy. Though it is an awful lot to learn, but I think with my 50 years, I am still young enough to manage it :lol:

Wanna have a look??

That is how she arrived this morning


First look..


all complete WOOOOWW that embroidery-kit is huuuuuge


Thanks for looking..

have a wonderful day

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you, Kerstin! I remember well the two times in my life when I bought the machine of my dreams and how it felt. Later in life I felt that way again when I bought my first Featherweight 221! Enjoy your wonderful new machine!!

It is a very cool feeling to get "that" machine, happy sewing!!

Nothing says HAPPY like a dream realized! Congratulations! Have fun!

Twice I have managed to get my 'dream machine' my two Janomes, one of which is now residing with another member of this forum. Each time I have been so excited I could hardly control myself as I unpacked them........I loved the 11000 and thought it would last me for ever until I saw the 12000 and realised that it was the one I wanted. I have been so lucky to own these two machines. What ever Janome do in the future I will not be parted from my 12000.

Enjoy your new machine, play with it so you learn everything about it.........congratulations!!

July 25th, 2012, 02:33 PM
I hope you two have a long and happy life together. Congratulations!

I'm so happy for you! I love how Husquvarna names all of their machines after jewels! I remember seeing a box under the Christmas tree 36 years ago with the machine of my dreams in it, I couldn't believe my excitement, or how much I was thrilled that my husband purchased it for me. Have had a couple more machines since then, but nothing like that moment! Have a great time with it!

July 25th, 2012, 04:03 PM
How wonderful for you. Enjoy your new addition.

September 9th, 2012, 01:19 PM
Thank you all.. again :lol:

I opened this thread at the end of July, but am very glad about your nice comments.
It didn't start so well, the automatical needle-threater did not work, so she had to travel through the country to the shop again to get it fixed.
Now everything works great. I have tested so much on small pieces, but I'm ready at last to start bigger projects.

thanks again and have a nice sunday
