BERNINA L 890 - First-class overlock and cover stitches


One-Step BERNINA air threader

  • Thread the machine by air
  • Automatically correct position of the looper
  • Threading that's fun

With one step on the foot pedal, the threads are guided through the machine in no time at all by air. This leaves both hands free to guide the threads. The L 890 automatically brings the hooks into the right position for the air threader - simply press the foot control and off you go!

BERNINA L890 feature touchscreen

Intuitive operation via touchscreen

  • Centrally positioned color touchscreen
  • Sewing advisor and stitch optimizer
  • Expert mode or guided mode

Whether stitch selection, individual stitch settings or personal memory - the touchscreen keeps all information ready at all times and allows changes to be made while sewing. The L 890 offers guided and expert modes. In both expert and guided mode, the thread tension, stitch length and differential feed are automatically set.

BERNINA L890 feature stitch control

Perfect seams thanks to total stitch control

  • Memory for 100 personal stitches
  • Sew & still change settings
  • Needle stop permanently adjustable up or down depending on application

Stitch length, differential feed, thread tension, cutting width or any other stitch parameter can also be adjusted while sewing. With a simple turn of the mtc knob, you can fine-tune the amount of looping thread that encircles the edge of the fabric.

BERNINA L890 feature freehand system

Functions you will love

  • Sew half stitches
  • BERNINA Free-Hand System (FHS) to raise and lower the presser foot
  • Easy access to needles thanks to swing-out presser foot

When you press down on the foot control with your heel, you can easily sew half a stitch. With the BERNINA Free-Hand System (FHS), you raise or lower the presser foot with your knee, leaving both hands free to guide the fabric.

BERNINA L890 feature sewing area

Generous sewing area

  • 143 mm space to the right of the needle
  • Slide-on table included
  • Practical free arm

The space offered by the L 890 is literally great. You get more space to the right of the needles and more clearance than ever before on a BERNINA overlock/coverstitch combo machine. The practical free-arm is an advantage when sewing closed textiles, as sleeves or cuffs can simply be slipped over it.


Extremely fast, precise & quiet

  • Sew up to 1350 stitches per minute
  • Strong, consistent performance & precision
  • Uniquely quiet operation

Not only fast sewing, but also slow stitch-by-stitch sewing is possible, making it much easier to execute precise lines and curves flawlessly. And all this with extremely smooth running, for which BERNINA has always been renowned.

BERNINA L890 feature stitches

The right seam for every idea

  • For a wide range of fabrics & threads
  • Sew with either 2, 3, 4 or 5 threads
  • For overlock, chain & combo stitching

The L 890 sews with 2, 3, 4 or 5 threads, offering the right seam for every application and fabric, especially for high-stretch and knit fabrics. As a combo machine, it offers three different functions at once: Overlock stitches, cover stitches, and 4- and 5-thread combo stitches.


Threading in a jiffy

  • Color-coded threading paths
  • Easy switching between the different stitches
  • Automatic needle stop at top or bottom

Color-coded, uniform threading paths allow you to switch from overlock to cover or combo stitch in no time. Helpful animations on the color touchscreen make it easy for you to operate and set up the machine.
