With the new Bernina L-850 threading is a quick and easy task with the Bernina 1-step air threader. The looper threads are magically moved through the machine by air with one simple step on the foot control. Now both hands are free to guide the threads. The L-850 automatically sets the loopers in the correct position of the air threader – no turning the handwheel or searching for the right position. The L 850 also offers several settings for Total Stitch Control – all individually adjustable. The best part? You can change all of these settings while sewing – including the thread tension, cutting width, stitch length and Micro Thread Control (mtc)
