Designer Julian Collins
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.
“The technology of the L 860 makes you feel like there’s a teacher inside the machine.”
– Julian Collins, Designer “Julian Creates”
The One-step BERNINA 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 860 automatically sets the loopers in the correct position of the air threader – no turning the handwheel or searching for the correct position. Simply press the foot control and you’re off!
