Comment to win the the first of this month’s giveaways! Update: Congratulations to our lucky winner, Janell5!

We’re kicking off this celebratory month with a software giveaway from HUSQVARNA VIKING®. The latest 6D™ Embroidery Software will fuel your creativity. You won’t believe where it takes you! 6D™ is compatible with Windows® 8 touch-screen technology, so you can pinch, zoom, auto-scroll, select and move right on your touch-screen! The Windows® Explorer Plug-In makes it easier to manage your designs. You’ll be able to view thumbnails, open designs, and more. Use this software to embellish clothes for little ones, personalize sports bags and outerwear or monogram everything from tote bags to oxford shirts. The software is compatible with all major machine brands. Retail value: $2299.

Sash and curtains made using 6D™ Embroidery Software

Some of the top features include:

  • Life View will allow you to view your projects with real world perspective. Move and vary the angle of the embroidery in a three dimensional view
  • QuiltBlock Wizard will guide you through every choice for filling and outlining a quilt block. There are a large variety of quilting fills available. Choose from nine different quilt block shapes.
  • Multi-Part Design Saving – design parts stay separate when you save, open and copy. This feature allows individual parts of a design to be modified after saving.
  • Create your own designs with Design Creator with features including appliqué and cutwork and an easier process for tie offs and jump stitches.
  • Over 145 fonts including fonts designed specifically for Puffy Foam
  • We’d test drive our new 6D™ Embroidery Software with some classic monogramming. Preppy staples like the Pocket Shirt or men’s Stinchcomb Jacket pair perfectly with custom initials and a pair of loafers.

    For your chance to win this software, simply comment below with one item on your holiday shopping wishlist! A winner will be randomly selected Friday, December 6.

    I have had 3 Husqvarna machines. I keep upgrading. Sad I did not keep on of my previous machine to sew on while I was embroidering! I would love to upgrade to 6D. I now have a Diamond. Love it! I have never won anything before this would be a good start to winning things.

    Mr. Santa, Please bring me my dream. Bring me 6D embroidery for my Designer1 machine. I bought my first (GREEN) Viking back in 1972… I use my machine for embroidery and Quilt tops and quilting..

    Thank you

    I would love this new software. I have sewn most of my life and am beginning to work less. With two young granddaughters to sew for, I would put it to good use! Thank you for the opportunity

    My ultimate wish is more time to sew (but retirement isn’t in the near future). Would love to upgrade my embroidery software and possible get a new machine to use it on.

    After pricing the upgrade from 4D to 6D, guess the only way to get 6D is to win it. Thank you.

    Currently using 5D extra. I would love to have 6D but not able to afford it. Being retired and on a fixed income some things just cannot be purchased. I feel that 6 D would be a big benefit to me in all that I do on the machines. It would be wonderful to have the latest software and I would be thankful for the rest of my life.
