"I finally have everything
I’ve ever wanted."

Jen Beeman, Pattern Designer

Jen Beeman loves designing fashions in fine jersey fabrics. Her machine of choice for trouble-free, smooth-looking stitches on woven and knit fabrics is the L 890. The perfect stitch quality gives her garments the professional look she expects. She especially loves the convenient One-step BERNINA Air Threader, for fast, easy threading of the looper threads. As a combo machine, the L 890 offers the right stitch for every idea. The touch screen allows Jen to keep an eye on everything, while focusing on her creativity.

One-Step BERNINA Air Threader

Thread the machine by one simple step

Loopers are in the correct position

Threading that is actually fun

The threads are magically moved through the machine via one simple step on the foot control. So both hands remain free. The L 890 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!

Intuitive operation via touch screen

Centrally located Color Touch Screen

Sewing Consultant, Stitch Optimizer & helpful animations

Expert Mode or Guided Mode

Stitch selection, individual stitch settings & properties or memory – the touch screen has all available & allows you to make changes while sewing. Advanced users can apply all settings directly in Expert Mode, while the Guided Mode offers step-by-step instructions. Both modes automatically set the thread tension, stitch length and differential feed along with stitch selection.

Perfect seams due to Total Stitch Control

Save 100 Stitches in your Personal Memory

Adjust stitch length, differential feed & thread tension while sewing

Needle stop can be permanently set up or down

With the L 890 you can change all settings individually and save up to 100 stitches in your Personal Memory. Also, stitch length, differential feed, thread tension, cutting width or any other stitch parameter can be adjusted while sewing. A simple turn of the mtc (Micro Thread Control) lets you modify the amount of overedge thread.

Convenient features you'll love

Raise or lower the needle by a half stitch

BERNINA Free Hand System (FHS) to raise and lower the presser foot

Swing out the presser foot to access the needles

By pressing the foot control with your heel, you can easily raise or lower the needle by a half stitch. The BERNINA Free Hand System (FHS) lets you raise and lower the presser foot with your knee, leaving both your hands free to guide the fabric.

Grand sewing

5 5/8" to the right of the needle

Extension table included

Convenient freearm

The space offered on the L 890 is generous by any definition. It has more room to the right of the needle and more work space height than any other BERNINA overlocker/serger. Sew closed items with ease by simply sliding sleeves or cuffs over the convenient freearm.

Fast, precise & quiet

Sew up to 1,350 stitches per minute

Strong, consistent and precise at any speed

Program and control speed via touch screen

Not only can you sew quickly, but you can also sew stitch-by-stitch, making the flawless production of precise lines and curves a simple process. Plus, you will enjoy how extremely quiet the BERNINA L 890 sews. Program and control the maximum and minimum speeds via the color touch screen.

The perfect seam for every idea

For all types of fabrics & threads

Sew using either 2, 3, 4 or 5 threads

For overlock, chain-/cover- & combo stitches

The L 890 sews using 2, 3, 4 or 5 threads, providing the perfect seam for every design. From the stretchiest knits to the most loosely woven fabrics the L 890 has the perfect stitch for particularly highly elastic and knitted materials, and threads. Combine both overlock, cover- and chainstitches for extra durable seams using 4- or 5-thread combo stitches.

Quick threading

One-path threading

Color-Coded threading path

Easily change from one stitch to another

Color-coded One-path threading enables you to easily switch between Overlock, Coverstitch or Combo stitches in no time at all. Every machine set-up and operation is supported with animations accessible on the color touch screen.
