BERNINA 800DL – the versatile introduction to serging
Upper-looper converter for serging with two threads
The BERNINA 800DL helps you save thread: The practical upper-looper converter lets you serge individual layers of fabric with just two threads, thereby reducing thread consumption. What’s more, you needn’t always use three threads at the same time when sewing decorative rolled hems – with the BERNINA 800DL, adjusting the stitch pattern precisely to you wishes and needs is simplicity itself.
Differential-feed and stitch-length controls
The BERNINA 800DL offers easy access to the differential-feed and stitch-length controls, which allow you to adjust the settings with the turn of a knob. Especially useful is the 800 DL’s differential feed system, which effectively prevents unintentional waving or puckering in knits: a control dial lets you adjust the feed to the material of your project so precisely that you’ll always produce smooth, impeccable seams, even when serging very lightweight, delicate fabrics that are quite tricky to work with. The BERNINA 800DL’s differential feed can also be used to deliberately gather seams, providing you with an exceptionally effective creative technique – the degree of gathering is easily determined via the control dial.
Adjustable thread tension
With the BERNINA 800DL, thread tension is adjusted via slide controls which not only afford you immediate access to the thread tension but also show you at a glance the current thread tension for each thread – letting you quickly correct settings and adjust them to your material. This direct control over the thread tension makes for a precise stitch pattern and hassle-free serging with all common types of fabric – with the BERNINA 800DL, even beginners soon have the thread tension under control.
