BERNINA L850 - Fast, precise and quiet

BERNINA L850 feature air feeder

One-Step BERNINA air threader

  • Guide thread through the machine by air
  • Automatically correct position of the looper
  • Threading that's fun

When threading the two looper threads, both hands remain free to guide the threads, as the threads are guided through the machine by air in no time at all with one step on the foot pedal.

BERNINA L850 Feature Comfort

Comfortable sewing

  • Lift & lower presser foot simply by knee lever
  • Free hands to guide the fabric
  • Easy access to needles thanks to swing-out presser foot

With the BERNINA Free-Hand System (FHS), you can easily raise and lower the presser foot using the knee lever. Furthermore, the presser foot can be swung out to the side for convenient access to the needles.

BERNINA L850 feature stitch control

Total stitch control for perfect seams

  • Process different fabrics & threads in any combination
  • Individual settings for total stitch control
  • Infinitely adjustable differential feed

The L 850 offers various settings for total stitch control - all individually adjustable. Best of all, you can make them while sewing, including adjusting thread tension, stitch length, cut width and mtc thread control.

BERNINA L850 feature speed

Extremely fast, precise & quiet

  • Sew up to 1500 stitches per minute
  • Powerful, consistent performance & precision
  • Extremely quiet running

With the L 850, you not only sew extremely fast, but also stitch-by-stitch. This makes it even easier to sew precise lines and curves. All this with the smooth running for which BERNINA has always been renowned.


Threading in a jiffy

  • Thanks to integrated needle threader
  • Automatic needle stop
  • Color-coded threading paths

With the integrated needle threader and automatic needle stop at the top, you'll be threading your threads in no time. Switching from an overlock seam to a rolled hem or flat seam is also child's play, with no change in threading path.

BERNINA L850 feature slide-on table

Generous sewing area

  • 14.3 cm space to the right of the needles
  • Slide-on table included
  • Practical free arm

With the L 850, you get plenty of room for creativity, in the truest sense of the word. More space to the right of the needles and more clearance than ever before on a BERNINA overlocker. Plus the practical free arm, where sleeves or cuffs can simply be slipped over it.
