All the stitches you'll ever need!
You sew for the fun of it. Of course the children's pants need to be mended, the curtains need to be hemmed, and skirts need to be shortened - but it's the creative process that makes sewing really fun. A beautiful quilt, a personally decorated blouse, curtains with your own Pictogram embroideries, or a seat cushion with appliques: Anything is possible if you have the right sewing machine. To make things really easy for you, we at Husqvarna Viking have created The Lily 540 and 550 , two sewing machines with an extra large selection of stitches. If you consider your sewing an art, these machines are a must! But the Lily also lets you patch those jeans.
The Lily is the product of Husqvarna Viking's long experience with sewing machines. It gives you the ultimate freedom of choice in stitches. Anything you do -- utility stitches, quilting, decorative stitches, Pictograms, or letters. The Lily 550 has all the stitches you'll ever need on your sewing machine. No need to add stitches later.
Quilt a masterpiece
The Lily is indispensable for quilt-makers. Special quilt stitches and Husqvarna Viking's own quilting presser foot make your work quick and professional. With the Pictogram® pen and the vast array of
decorative stitches, you can create your own patterns and creative solutions for everything that you sew. And the Lily has plenty of stitches to choose from. The Lily 550, for example, has 88 decorative stitches
and three different alphabets for monograms and other lettering.
Special features -- large and small!
Everything you could possibly need for utility stitching is at your fingertips, including several overlock stitches and buttonholes. All utility stitches are at the touch of a button. Touch the stitch you desire, and
the stitch is automatically set with the right stitch length and width.
The buttonhole sensor foot, which is a standard feature, creates automatic settings to sew buttonholes with the exact same length. The Fix key makes it easy to sew a few stitches at the beginning and end of a seam to fix it in place, and three thread cutters are just a few of the special features of the Lily.
