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: . The manual and other useful information for the Designer Ruby is here: . The current link to the manual is . The file extensions are listed on page 9:2 (page 100 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

If you are unable to pull the full bobbin off of the bobbin winder, take the thread of off the bobbin and it should come off easily.
If the thread has too much tension during winding or if wound at full speed, it can cause the bobbin to be compressed on the spindle and it won't come off. I recommend throwing away the bobbin just in case it was deformed in the process.
Wind at 1/2 to 3/4 speed in the future and make sure that it is threaded properly for bobbin winding.

Make sure you are using the correct bobbin, and that it was threaded properly. Check needle and plate to make sure there are no nicks. Clean all fuzz from the bobbin area. Always thread needle with needle down.

This is a design you have successfully sewn prior? Check available memory... go FileManager-> QuickHelp-> MyFiles, it will show available memory. Or could be the file is corrupt, load new copy into machine.

How minutes does it take to sew, design? I'm wondering if you have utility power issue<?>. May be try running machine off a properly sized UPS.

Or could be machine failure. May be try a different design file that you know worked prior.
