Hi all.

I have just purchased a ten year old Bernina Artista 180 and i'm trying to
find a way to make it 'talk' to my laptop.

I believe when it was new it would have been bundled with free Artlink
software that simply provides a link from machine to laptop, doesnt convert,
digitise or anything.

I have spoken to Bernina but they no longer support Artlink and it is now
obsolete.  They told me I need to buy the editor software which is very
expensive however I only want to transfer designs so its massive overkill
for my needs.

I've looked around for online software that may do the trick and I read that
Wilcom Truesizer did a version that wrote to .ART however it was quickly
removed and only a lucky few were able to download it.  If anyone has a copy
of that I would be willing to pay for a copy?

Many thanks for any help

I also recently acquired a new to me Bernina 180 and have been researching
this very topic.In my searching I have come to the conclusion that the
Magic Box converter is the best option. I actually found s couple second
hand ones for sale at the yahoo group Sewitsforsale. Hope that helps.

Thanks for that.  Yes I think a Magic Box is a good idea.

Its a lovely machine isn't it.  I had problems at first but have now
purchased a dedicated embroidery bobbin and the quality of my projects is so
much better.

Thanks again
