The b68 AIRLOCK is the top model of the bernette 60 series – a combo machine with which you can create overlock, cover-, chain- and combo stitches.
If you are looking for a sturdy and easy-to-use machine that can be used flexibly for different fabrics, threads, and sewing projects, this is the machine for you!
Its many strengths include an air threader for easy threading of looper threads, 5" of space to the right of the needle for comfortable sewing of large projects — especially for coverstitching, an integrated freearm for sewing cuffs, the bright illumination of the sewing area with 5 LEDs, and the knee lifter system for lowering and temporarily raising the presser foot.
31 different stitches for overlock, cover-, chain- and combo stitches leave nothing to be desired!
Automatic AIRLOCK air threader — Threading the looper has never been easier and quicker thanks to the automatic air threader! The looper can be threaded with a simple push of the button.
5 LEDs in the needle and working area — The well-lit workspace of the bernette 68 AIRLOCK easier sewing as well as threading of the looper and needles. The 5 LED lights facilitate precise and accurate work.
Lots of space thanks to the 5" (130mm) large working area — The 5" space right of the needle gives coverstitching another dimension! The large working area is ideal for leading and catching heavy sewing projects in front and behind the needle and gives you the space for all tasks in the needle and looper area.
Super-large slide-on table — The easy-to-attach and included slide-on table makes sewing and fabric guiding even more comfortable, especially for large sewing projects. This allows the fabric to glide smoothly over the large rounded working area. The matching coverstitch insert additionally extends the sewing area and closes perfectly with the slide-on-table.
Knee Lifter — Use the included knee lifter to position the fabric comfortably under the presser foot with both hands. Simply push the knee lifter to the right with your knee and the presser foot is lowered or temporarily raised.
Micro Thread Control (mtc) — The Micro Thread Control (mtc) saves you significant time and effort while ensuring consistent high-quality stitches since you need only set thread tension once — even if you alter the cutting width and fabric thickness!
