Jen Beeman loves designing fashions in fine jersey fabrics. Her machine of choice for trouble-free, smooth-looking stitches on woven and knit fabrics is the L 890. The perfect stitch quality gives her garments the professional look she expects. She especially loves the convenient One-step BERNINA Air Threader, for fast, easy threading of the looper threads. As a combo machine, the L 890 offers the right stitch for every idea. The touch screen allows Jen to keep an eye on everything, while focusing on her creativity.
One-Step BERNINA Air Threader
- Thread the machine by one simple step
- Loopers are in the correct position
- Threading that is actually fun
The threads are magically moved through the machine via one simple step on the foot control. So both hands remain free. The L 890 automatically sets the loopers in the correct position for the air threader – no turning the handwheel or searching for the right position. Simply press the foot control and you’re off!
Intuitive operation via touch screen
- Centrally located Color Touch Screen
- Sewing Consultant, Stitch Optimizer & helpful animations
- Expert Mode or Guided Mode
Stitch selection, individual stitch settings & properties or memory – the touch screen has all available & allows you to make changes while sewing. Advanced users can apply all settings directly in Expert Mode, while the Guided Mode offers step-by-step instructions. Both modes automatically set the thread tension, stitch length and differential feed along with stitch selection.
Perfect seams due to Total Stitch Control

Also, stitch length, differential feed, thread tension, cutting width or any other stitch parameter can be adjusted while sewing. A simple turn of the mtc (Micro Thread Control) lets you modify the amount of overedge thread.
