SOURCE: top color thread showing on

Upper tension is too loose or lower tension is too tight.This might be a good thing. It depends upon how much it is pulling the thread under. A perfect tension on embroidery is about 2/3's lower thread and 1/3 upper thread showing on the bottom.

SOURCE: using a bernina gold latch bobbin case on the Bernina 435 machine

There isn't a Bernina 435. If you are referring to the 430 than the gold latch bobbin case will not work in that machine. If you are talking about the Bernina 450 the gold latch will work in that machine, with or without the embroidery module.

Why wont my Bernina 170 QE embroidery unit work

Electronics fail eventually. It is a bummer because I bet you love your old Bernie. Electronics are nothing for the novice to mess with unless they have loads of component level experience. I would take this to your sewing tech and have them check it out. (maybe get a new one?)

How do I install Bernina Artista Software V5 on Windows 8?

Contrary to what Bernina has said about their software (Bernina Embroidery Software v5), that particular software CAN be installed AND ran in Windows 8 with no issues whatsoever. When you install it, it will perform normally (not go to a blue screen like Bernina says), then it will ask you to insert the dongle. After installation, go to the Bernina Embroidery icon and right click. Select troubleshoot compatibility. The computer will run a test to see what system you should run the software as. It should say Windows XP Service Pack 3. Select next. Now double click your Bernina software and it should start up fine. Hope this helped.

I have no software with my Bernina 440QE embroidery Module. What can I use. Also what is a dongle & does that come with the software

A dongle is a flash drive, but in Bernina's case it is a programed security device that prevents using their software other than with their products.

Once you get software with this device, take very good care of it as the replacement is expensive.

Other brands of software do not use this device.

Another issue with Bernina is the embroidery format. If it is Art you are stuck with Bernina software and designs as other formats cannot be converted to this particular format.

Bernina makes fine sewing machines, but the embroidery machines and software are not easy on the purse.

For the price of the software, you could buy a Brother embroidery machine that is user friendly and uses a format is is very popular and easy to find. No roadblocks when using software with this brand.
