Contact a local sewing machine repair shop for the part. This website doesn't sell parts.

Testimonial: "Thanks, but I don't have a local sewing machine repair shop or I would have gone there first! I used one who is only 65 miles away and he overlooked the broken stitch length knob, so I'm reluctant to go back to him. I'll keep looking."

    Don't know what to tell you call a shop and have them ship it.

Need to change stitch density

Hi Debbie,
I found the command for this change in the Features menu called "Balance" and it has a "b" symbol. In the ARtista 185 instruction manual this appears on page 30 so probably around there in your manual too.
Manual says
"Balance - touch symbol to open balance screen, correct forwards and reverse stitches, correct sideways motion stitches.
If you dont' have a manual you might want to download the 185 from the Bernina website, the link is

Hope this helps you to resolve your issue.
