The Husqvarna Designer Ruby can read a number of embroidery file formats: .SHV, .DHV, .HUS, .VIP, .VP3, .PEC, .PCS, .SEW, .JEF, .EXP, .10*, and .DST. One other embroidery file format is accepted. See the manual. It can read the .SH7 stitch format files and .VF3 embroidery font files. It can also read .HTM/ .HTML and .TXT files. With the complimentary 5D software (or a similar package), you can convert most other embroidery files to one that is compatible with the Designer Ruby.

The documentation for many Husqvarna Viking sewing machines is available here: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/Support . The manual and other useful information for the Designer Ruby is here: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/support/DESIGNER-RUBY . The current link to the manual is http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/SiteMedia/Products/Machines/Support/Designer_Ruby_manual_ENG_A.pdf?ext=.pdf . The file extensions are listed on page 9:2 (page 100 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

(I will admit to mostly using the .HUS files with the Designer Ruby.)

SOURCE: Husqvarna Viking sewing machine embroidery

There are two ways to convert the True Type fonts on your computer to embroidery. One is within the program, one is independent. To locate the independent one, locate your Programs folder on your computer then the folder containing your embroidery software. There should be a QuickFont.exe file there you can use. The best way however is to use the one within the program. On your Letter tab, up where the types of fonts are listed with radio buttons, there should be a QF icon. Click on that and you are away. The two programs are not exactly the same and whilst I have forgotten the differences, the one inside the customising program is the better one to use.

The rose has been around a long time, I had one, $200 is a good deal, but I would recommend that you at least buy a designer, you'll be glad you did.

How do I turn off thread portioning on Husqvarna Ruby De Luxe. I don't want to adjust the settings but need to turn this off. Thank you


FWIW, I was unable to find any information for turning off the thread portioning function. Unfortunately, this appears to be the thread tensioning system, so disabling the thread portioning would be disabling the thread tensioning--something that is critical to sewing. It appears this model may have some issues and perhaps this one is particular to your machine. It may be best to take it for service.

Perhaps this will help:

My new computer has windows 8 and i use it for embroidery an my machine will not run on windows 8. it is a Viking ruby made by Husqvarna


You'll need to go to the Viking site and see if they have an update to the software. Otherwise you'll need to buy an older machine to use for the embroidery software.

I just bought a used Designer 1 ESS machine and I do not know how to use the dongle


You don't need a dongle for the sewing machine. You either have a dongle for the computer embroidery software in which case it goes in your computer when you've installed the software, or you have a USB stick that has the Husqvarna designs on it.

What colour is it? The USB sticks are blue, the 3D software dongles are red. Only problem is, I think the 4D software dongles are blue too!! My Husqvarna Designer 1 USB embroidery stick (blue) has "USB Embroidery Stick" written on it - have a look for that. The dongle will have Hasp or something like that written on it.

If you are pretty sure it is a USB stick, put it in your machine and turn it on. Then touch the disk/stick icon on the lower right hand side of the screen. Your machine should start to read the stick and you will get a pop-up menu where you can choose from the folders on the stick. If you don't, go into the PROG screen. Touch MENU, touch the disk/stick icon and see if the embroidery files on the stick come up then. Each machine came with a set of designs called Embroidery Disk 100 and three alphabets - Palace Script, Kaligraphia and Clarendon. These should all be on the USB stick.

In the event that it is a dongle you have, but not the software, you need to contact the person from whom you purchased the machine.

You can download the Husqvarna designs from the Husqvarna website, but you will need a Husqvarna formatted USB stick to do this. Therefore, you do need software on your computer. There are some low-cost alternatives to the Husqvarna software - Embird and Sew What come to mind. However, a Husqvarna program called 3D Disk Manager USB came with every USB Designer 1 machine, so you should have got that when you purchased the machine. This will be enough for you to load designs from the HV website and from other websites where you purchase designs.

Can't get computer and embroidery machine to connect via USB. Computer doesn't recognize embroidery machine. (Husqvarna Designer Diamond) I also have a new DELL laptop.


If your using Windows Vista, you have to have the multi user account in the off postioin. Also if you had 3D embroidery software and you upgraded to 4D software you have to be sure to uninstall the 32 bit drivers from the 3d for the 4d to work properly.

You do have to install the communication software that came with the diamond also. It won't communicate through the 3d or 4d only.

Embroidery stick


Four questions:
What model Husqvarna sewing machine are you using?
Are you using a Husqvarna formatted USB stick?
Is the embroidery unit attached when you put in the stick?
Is your machine using the latest version of its software?

I might be able to give some more specific help once I know the answers to the above.
