Will the thread director work on a Babylock Ellegante 2?

Yes, the thread director works on almost all machines  You will have no problems with it working on your Babylock Ellegante 2.

Check out our video at and you will see that it works on my Ellisimo.

Does this fit the Husqvarna Diamond Deluxe and Ruby Deluxe machines? I have a tremendous amount of problems using metallic threads in my machines and is very frustrating. Thank you for your time and assistance.

Yes the Thread Director will fit on both the Husqvarna Diamond Deluxe and Ruby Deluxe machines. Attached please find a three page document that has photos on how and where to mount The Thread Director on your Diamond Deluxe.  The information for your Ruby Deluxe is the same.  We are going to post your question and our response on our website so other sewers can see.

Diamond Deluxe Mounting instructions

Hi I am wondering if the thread director will work on a Husqvarna Designer Diamond? Thanks

Yes, The Thread Director works on the Viking Diamond.  On our website, under the Photo Gallery, a drop down list will appear.  Click on Viking Machines and you will see your machine and how it is mounted.

Does the Thread Director work on Janome machines?

Yes, The Thread Director will work on all Janome machines.  It will go on the bobbin winder for all but the 1600.  You can place it on the vertical spool pin of this machine.

Can the thread director be used on a Tin Lizzy 18, purchased in 2006? If so, are there any adjustments or parts needed?

What a coincidence, I have a Tin Lizzy 18 that I bought in June of 2006.

I am happy to report it does work.  Just mount the Thread Director on the vertical spool pin and thread as usual.  If you have any issues, it will be with the tension and or the pressure foot height.  I don’t know about your machine but mine can be touchy at times and I just have to work through it.

Every new quilt is an adventure!

If you have any further questions or if I can be of any help, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Does the thread director work on a husqvarna Viking SE ? It has two horizontal spool pins and the bobbin winder is on an angle. If not, what is the solution so I can use your product ?

Yes the Thread Director works on the the Viking SE. You can use it on either the bobbin winder or the spool pins.

Will the thread director fit on the Pfaff 7570? I have several older machines that the thread director does not fit over the bobbin winder. Do you have any suggestions?

It should fit on the bobbin winder on this one. For the older machines, do they have a vertical spool pin that you can use? As for the oversized bobbins on your older machines, yours would only be the second instance that we have seen where it will not fit. So, if you send us a picture of the bobbin winders along with the model and the diameter of each bobbin winder, we can possibly enlarge the bottom hole by drilling it out and send you the modified base that will allow it to work. This would be at not charge to you.

Will The Thread Director work on an Elna Super 62? Thank you.

Please fill in an answer

Trying it on my Pfaff Quilters Expression 4.0 and iffy is the best word I have. My Pfaff is not happy with the angel that the thread enters. It really throws off the tension and I have had some success by drastically lowering my tension. I do, however, have a fix. By adjusting the tube that holds the mechanism, you can lower the spool to come in at an almost direct horizontal. You can have the idea. I'll take the new one!
