Bernina 1300MDC Combination Overlocker/Coverstitch Machine
The BERNINA 1300 MDC makes creative sewing easier than ever before! Let yourself be inspired by this overlocker‘s wide range of stitches. The additional coverstitch opens up a whole new dimen- sion in sewing. Enjoy the wealth of luxury features which will make sewing and overlocking even more of a pleasure – especially the pat- ented mtc thread control for the perfect seam at the turn of a knob.
Micro Thread Control (mtc)
Thanks to the patented mtc thread control, it‘s finally possible to directly set the over-edge thread length and achieve the perfect seam at the twist of a knob!
Patented Swing-Out Presser Foot
Simply swing the foot out to the side to give yourself plenty of space for easy threading and hassle-free needle change.
Front Foot Lift System
The front foot lift gives an additional lift to the front of the presser foot, making it possible to accurately position multiple layers of fabric and bulky projects such as hand-knitted jumpers underneath it.
Threading (Lay-in) System
The BERNINA lay-in system lets you thread quickly and directly at all times. Thanks to the automatic lower-looper threading system, it’s also a cinch to thread the lower loopers.
Professional Knife Drive from Above
Provides the greatest, most robust cutting force. Even thick fabrics won’t deflect the upper knife - so all fabric edges can be trimmed safely and professionally
Swing-out Upper Knife Arm
The upper knife arm can be quick-released effortlessly at the press of a button to provide more room. This is particularly advantageous when, for example, you’re working in coverstitch mode, or do not wish to trim the fabric edge.
Accessories in the Looper Cover
Here you’ll find the most commonly used accessories, neatly arranged and ready-to-hand.
Handwheel Position Indicator
Easy, ergonomic operation: With the aid of the vision panel and the red position indicators, you’ll find the ideal threading position for the needles and the lower looper straightaway.
The practical manual threading tool for quick threading.
Rolled Hem Lever
Simply flick the rolled hem lever to switch effortlessly to a rolled hem stitch and back again, with no need to change the stitch plate or presser foot
The clear display tells you both the personal and default basic settings of the stitch variants. You can also read the recommended basic thread tension here, as well as save personal settings.
