    I have a Bernina Artista 185 and due to family emergencies, it got packed away. I am now bringing it out and it feels like an old fiend. Unfortunately it is out of date and there is no support. I am desperately trying to figure out how to use the embroidery computer. How to hook it up to my computer (i have a Windows 7 and a Windows 10); I just purchased a Tripp lite Keyspan 9 pin serial adapter (USB-A to Serial DB9 RS232 Adapter Cable – 3 ft. Keyspan, High-Speed (M/M), TAA. I have all the other cords (dongle?) that hooks up to the embroidery machine and the computer that came with the embroidery CD (I believe it is a Version 3). I would love to chat with you to see what I can do to use this beloved machine which is in perfect condition. My name is Patti and my email is Thank you so much for any help or direction you can give me. Patti
