Default HELP!! What is my machines brand??

Hi 👋🏻 I am new to the forum,

I just received this older embroidery machine but it does not say the brand on it.

it has a touch screen and a card slot

would love to know what brand so that I can get the accessories I need.

My Husqvarna Viking Designer 1 has a touch screen and card slot. A 3.5mm floppy disk fits in the card slot. Can't see what is on the 3 images you included with the original note/message.

I tried searching for "REMEMBER!" sewing machine and nothing similar to your machine appeared -- Sorry. Hope someone else has other suggestions.

Good luck. It appears that this is a machine made for pro-shops to embroider "in house." It looks like the company name is "AHEAD, LLC" and AHEADERIZER (both are all caps per websites to follow) is a trademark maybe for sewing machines, but when I looked at https://trademarks.justia.com/760/06...-76006833.html it is for International class "007" which doesn't mention "sewing" in the description. I did find http://www.aheadhq.com/inquiries/tradeinqs.asp with Aheaderizer at the bottom. It appears that is for an inquiry into the goods and services offered by the company. I tried going to http://www.aheadhq.com thinking it might be the home page and give some additional information. Unfortunately, it required one to sign in.


I did find http://www.aheadhq.com/ahweb/html/aheaderizer.htm that has a bunch of avi (video without audio) regarding the Aheaderizer.


Hope this helps.

OurWorkbench, nice detective work! The first two websites were especially interesting. It is very generous of you to share your vast machine knowledge and research skills on this forum.

Your machine is a BROTHER PE 180. The designs on the display screen are exactly as mine..the design format is .pes, you can buy the (expensive)design cards from eBay or dealers. But I would recommend the PED Basic software for blank card/cardwriter, which can be bought for under $100. There are other cards for .pes, but most will not be compatible w/computers that have Win10. Your machine will need Brother 4x4 hoop or repositionable 5x7. I cannot tell from pix if the machine's slot will also accept a 3x5 floppy, but if so, you can just transfer designs from computer to floppy. ( you can prob find a drive at eBay, also). My PE180 does not have auto thread cutter, tho my PE200 does. There are free software programs for reformatting, editing, etc. Embroidery is addictive. Hope this info helps.
