Bernina L 890
It’s easier than ever to get perfect overlock, cover-, chain- and combo stitches. Create professional seams, edges and hems with all of the functions of an overlocker and cover-/chainstitch machine in one spectacular model.
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.
“I finally have everything I’ve ever wanted.”

Combine both overlock, cover- and chainstitches for extra durable seams using 4- or 5-thread combo stitches.
