BERNINA L 860
The Unique Overlocker
The BERNINA L 860 is perfectly suited for working with all types of threads and fabrics, particularly highly elastic and knitted materials. The machine offers a variety of stitches, all selectable via the color touch screen. The exclusive One-step BERNINA Air Threader makes threading the loopers unbelievably easy.
Julian Collins is fascinated by the L 860 – and for good reason. Because the L 860 is the perfect overlocker for beginners and professionals alike. From easy looper threading with the One-step BERNINA Air Threader, to navigation on the large touch screen for an easy stitch selection, to the built-in Needle Threader and swing-out presser foot, the L 860 simplifies his entire sewing process. Like Julian, you’ll appreciate the Expert and Guided Modes to help you create your perfect stitch.
