THE PERFECT SEAM FOR EVERY IDEA

The BERNINA L 860 is perfectly suited for working with all

types of fabrics, particularly highly elastic and knitted

materials, and threads. It sews, cuts and finishes in one easy

step, so that your sewing projects take shape in no time. It

sews using 2, 3 or 4 threads, providing the perfect stitch for

functional or creative applications. The L 860 Overlocker offers

overlock, flatlock, rolled hem and blanket stitches as well

as wrapped overlock stitches, all selectable via the color

touch screen. Overlock Accessory Set includes: Beading and Sequin Foot, Piping Foot Small, Piping Foot Large, Cording Foot and Decorative Thread Spool Pin!


THE BEST OF SWISS ENGINEERING:

THE ONE-STEP BERNINA AIR THREADER

The exclusive One-step BERNINA Air Threader makes

threading the loopers unbelievably easy. The threads are

magically moved through the machine via one simple step on

the foot control. 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 L 860 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!


QUICK THREADING

Threading the needles is simple thanks to the integrated

needle threader and the automatic needle stop up

function. One-path Threading with color coding allows you

to change from an overlock seam to a rolled hem or a flatlock

seam in no time without changing the threading path.


INTUITIVE OPERATION VIA TOUCH SCREEN

The L 860 is easily operated using the centrally located Color

Touch Screen. Stitch selection, individual stitch settings,

stitch properties or memory—the touch screen has all of the

information available at your fingertips anytime you need

it and allows you to make changes while sewing. A Creative

Sewing Consultant, Stitch Optimizer and helpful

animations for all functions are available to you. Stitch

selection can be performed in two modes: Advanced users

can apply all desired settings directly, quickly and individually

in Expert Mode, while in Guided Mode, sewists will

receive step-by-step instructions for stitch selection,

machine settings and stitch optimization. Both modes

automatically set the thread tension, stitch length and

the differential feed along with the stitch selection.

TOTAL STITCH CONTROL

All settings can be changed individually and 100 stitches can

be saved in your Personal Memory. Stitch length, differential

feed and thread tension can also be adjusted while sewing.

The needle stop can be permanently set up or down,

depending on the application. With the Micro Thread

Control (mtc), the amount of the overedge thread can be

precisely adjusted with a simple turn of the mtc knob.

The result? Perfect overlock, flatlock and rolled hems as well as

decorative edges ideally suited for your sewing project thanks

to Total Stitch Control.

THE BERNINA ADVANTAGE

If you’re a proud owner of a BERNINA sewing machine, then

you’ll be thrilled with the L 860 Overlocker because it’s packed

with the many functions and BERNINA benefits you already

know and love. Don’t own a BERNINA? Well you’re in for a

treat! Once you experience the BERNINA Overlocker, you won’t

want anything else.

GRAND SEWING SPACE

The space offered on the L 8 Series machines is generous by

any definition. They have more room to the right of the

needle and more workspace height than any other

BERNINA overlocker. That means simple access to the presser

foot lifter and needles, as well as more comfortable guiding of

the fabric. Sew closed items with ease by simply sliding sleeves

or cuffs over the convenient freearm. In addition, the large

slide-on extension table expands the work surface area and

simplifies the sewing of larger projects. The bright LED

sewing light provides improved visibility when sewing, during

both day and night.


EXTREMELY FAST, PRECISE & QUIET

The L 860 reaches a maximum sewing speed of 1,500 stitches

per minute (spm). The foot control allows you to control the

motor providing strong, consistent stitching power as well

as precision at any sewing speed. Not only can you sew

quickly, but you can set the sewing speed as slow as 250 spm.

Using the BERNINA Foot Control gives you the ability to sew

stitch-by-stitch, making precise lines and flawless curves a

simple process. And all of this is achieved with the amazingly

quiet hum of a BERNINA. Program and control the maximum

and minimum speeds via the color touch screen.

EXTREMELY CONVENIENT

Many functions of the L 860 Overlock machine offer sewing

convenience that meets the highest standards: Make handling

easier by pressing the foot control with your heel to raise or

lower the needle by a half stitch. The BERNINA Free

Hand System (FHS), a knee-operated lifter that raises and

lowers the presser foot, leaves both hands free to guide the

fabric—a significant advantage when sewing corners! In

addition, the presser foot easily swings out for convenient

access to the needles.
