Bernette London 7

Modern technology wrapped in a young design

  • Built-In Needle Threader
    • The bernette London 7’s built-in needle threader lets you thread the machine’s needle quickly and easily. Cumbersome needle threading is now a thing of the past – the threader simply grips the thread and pulls it through the eye of the needle all by itself. The bernette London 7 is ready to go in a flash, letting you get started with your creative sewing projects instantly.
  • Two Level Presser Foot Lift
    • One of the attractive features of the bernette London 7 is its two-level presser foot lift, which ensures plenty of space under the presser foot. This is particularly important when sewing thick fabrics, or several layers of fabric, as the presser foot lift offers you considerably more room to position the fabric comfortably under the presser foot. Because of this and the adjustable presser foot pressure, your bernette London 7 lets you feed and sew a wide range of materials to perfection, regardless of how thin or heavy the fabric is – providing more freedom and space for your creativity.
  • Flip-Top Lid and Dust Cover
    • The bernette London 7’s clever flip-top lid protects the bobbin winder, spool holder, and thread-tension dial from dust and ensures their perfect operation at all times. On the inside of the lid you’ll also find a clear chart displaying all of the bernette London 7’s stitches, letting you select the right stitch for your sewing project in no time flat. Flip the lid down for transporting and stowing your bernette London 7, an advantage since it protects the bobbin winder, control dials and spool holder from accidental bumps and knocks, and ensures it doesn’t catch on anything.
  • Recessed Handwheel
    • The bernette London 7’s handwheel for manual operation of the needle up/down postion and manual fabric feed is recessed so that it’s flush with the surface of the housing. Nothing protrudes or is in the way, yet the handwheel of the bernette London 7 is easy and comfortable to use. This not only preserves the stylish blo:c design of your bernette London 7, but also ensures practical space-saving storage. What’s more, it ensures that the handwheel is better protected from damage, for example when traveling.
  • Easy Stich Selection Via Stitch Selector Wheel
    • The bernette London 7 provides you with a generous total of 60 different stitches that open up a huge range of creative possibilities for sewers. All stitch patterns can be quickly and easily selected via the stitch selector wheel. Choose the appropriate stitch pattern from the inside of the flip-top lid, set it on the selector wheel, and you’re good to go. A red digital display on the white front of the bernette London 7 shows you the stitch you’ve just chosen. Stitch selection is user-friendly and hassle-free – ideal for turning your creative ideas into reality.
