Question about Bernina Artista 180

1 Answer

I would like to delete 2 files from the embroidery memory in the 180 module, not the card. I open the file, go to Layout 1, select DEL and nothing happens. This is as per the directions in the manual. What should I do?

    I was able to save designs to the memory, from an ART card. I am not able to remove the designs following the directions in the manula. I do not have ARTlink. I do not connect the ARtista 180 to the laptop. So, now what do I do?

If you have the machine connected to the computer you can delete the embroidery from your machine, Artlink software is for this machine to write designs or read designs from your machine.

How do I know if this is a Machine issue, a Memory card issue or an error in the design file?

I am not sure the program has downloaded on Windows 7. The embroidery designs will not move there--


Sometimes embroidery files download in ZIP format.Check your download folder, and double click on the downloaded file. windows shoukd extract it into a folder of its own. open that folder and the .pes files should be in it. Then open the Brother program to access that folder with the .pes files.

With embroidery card inserted into module, no motifs appear on the display screen.


Here are two other possibilities other than electrical problems with your Bernina. There are embroidery design cards that were made for the 200 & 730 that simply do not work in a 180. There is nothing marked on the card or the packaging that will tell you what model machine the card will work in. I sold a bunch of my design cards on eBay last winter and I tested all of them in both a 730 and a 180 before making the ad discription. I found that most of the design cards worked in the 180 & 730, but there were a few that only worked in the 730. So if your design card is one of those that won't work in a 180, that could be your problem.
You did not say if you have other design cards that do work or there is only one you tried. Possibly the card itself is bad.
A static shock to the card could possibly damage it.
So if you take your machine to a dealer to have it looked at, take your design card along.
The 180's memory for storing designs is located in the embroidery module, not the machine itself. If that memory is filled up with other designs this can cause a problem.
So your problem is most likely with the design card or with the embroidery module. Should you need to get another embroidery module, that module needs to be the same version number as your machine or it will not work. I have a. video posted on YouTube that shows you how to check the version number of your machine and module. That information is in my "Bernina check hours 165, 170, 180, 185" video. Put that in the YouTube search box and you will find my video. Plus I have other helpful Bernina videos posted.

I'm trying to import an applique file to my brother se400


You do have embroideries already saved in the machine's memory. You need to delete one or more to clear up space to add the new one.

Machine memory is FULL. delete a few designs from the machine, and then you should be able to load a new design from the USB Drive.

I have a Bernina 180 with embroidery module. If I upgrade to a Bernina 640, would it work with my 180 module?


Unfortunately no, I think that the 185 and beyond use the same emb module. The 180 if I remember correctly, has the memory and card reader in the module itself and may have a different plug. I do know for sure that the 180 hoops will definitely not fit on the newer modules. Sorry to disapoint, Allen

Many free designs are avaiable to download to my computer these days? How do i use them with the SE3?


On the hard drive of your PC create a folder and name it Emb Downloads or something similar that you will be able to find.

Select the download and save to the folder. These design files will most likely be zipped. A zipped file cannot be read. Open or extract all files.

If the download is not in the format you need, you can convert to the format needed by using Pulse Ambassador (this is a free software download). Download, then open the design you want to convert and then select save as and select the required format.

To get the designs to the embroidery machine, you need a reader/writer unit and rewritable memory card in the format for this machine.

You can find this software at Allbrands.com for a price less that what dealers usually charge.

Having problem downloading patterns from disc to memory card have spent hours trying


Judy, you mention memory card so I am assuming you are refering to a Compact Flash card that you insert into a PCMCIA adaptor.
The card must be smaller than 512 MB, any larger and the machine won't acknowledge it. You need a type 1 card and compact flash card adaptor, a compact card reader/writer unless you have an integral multi card reader integrated into your computer. The card format must be FAT, the older computer file format. Insert the card into the adaptor and insert into your machine, wait for the warning screen to clear, if the machine asks "format card" hit yes on the machines display screen . If there is no offer to format the card use the SET icon on the display screen, you need embroidery mode, then arrow forward till you reach the Format options, select ATA card, hit yes, it will warn you card contents will be erased, hit OK. Just say yes to any new questions. Wait for the warning screen to dissapear, when it does you can eject the card adaptor, now insert the card alone into your digital media card reader which should be inserted via a USB connection to your computer, locate the drive your computer has allocated to the card and open it. You will see two types of folders, ORD which are for combined decorative stitches you might want to save, those you put together in the machine, and EMB folders, those are where the machine expects to find designs,11 of each.
Only use them to transfer designs between the machine and computer or vice versa, don't use them to store all your designs in, you will over tax your machines on board processor.
To pop designs into them, open your design CD, select the design you want to stitch, copy it, now open the card in your computer, open the first folder, number 5, I think, and Paste into that folder. Use only JEF formats, your machine wont read any other format.
Don't transfer designs into the machines built in folders, you will severely constrict the machines memory to the point where it wont be able to access enough memory to stitch your designs. Use the compact card as an external drive, which it is anyway, the machine will still stitch the design as if it were in its own memory. To access the card in the machine, select embroidery mode, then the card icon and finally if needed the file icon.
Hope this helps you

Cannot get Janome 10001 to read via USB direct link from computer


here's how I do it.
1. Get the design into jef or sew format (the only kinds janome reads). You probably already knew this, but some newbies try to use pes or art files.
2. Save it onto your computer (and remember the name of the file). I have a folder in my computer labelled "embroidery files" and then have subfolders dividing up those designs - such as animals, flowers, fonts.
3. Hook your sewing machine up to the computer via the USB cable.
4. Pull up your Janome "Easy Transfer" program (it came as a CD with your machine - this is NOT the customizing software).
5. Use that program to find your embroidery file. It's not going to show sew and jef in the same file - you'll have to switch back and forth.
6. On your sewing machine, click on the bottom button (under the screen) that shows the computer to the sewing machine (the third one).
7. Now click on the computer software "write to machine" or whatever it's called (it will be on the top tool bar).
8. Your file will be written to the sewing machine's memory and organized by the embroidery hoop size (A, B, C).
9. It will stay in the sewing machine memory until you use the cable hookup to delete it (reverse of the writing).
10. The 10001 software ate lots of the resident memory in the sewing machine - you can't store as many designs in it as the 10000 would allow. That's perfectly ok, as it only takes a few moments to move designs in and out of the machine.

To be perfectly honest, I vastly prefer doing the USB cable transfer to using the memory card jammed into the card reader deal. It's easy and quick.
