Tradition & Innovation
BERNINA has been passionately dedicated to the development and manufacturing of high-quality sewing machines
since 1893. Today, we are proud to present a new milestone in our history—the BERNINA L 890 Overlock/Coverstitch
Combo machine. This innovation, manufactured by BERNINA, is 100% designed and engineered in Switzerland.

The Best of Swiss Engineering: The One-Step Bernina Air-Threader
The One-step BERNINA Air Threader makes threading the looper threads unbelievably easy. Our Swiss engineers have created a masterpiece. In fact, it’s actually fun. No more dreading threading! One of the biggest advantages when threading both looper threads is both hands remain free. The threads are magically moved through the machine via one simple step on the foot control. Remarkably quick and easy! 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!
