At the opening ceremony the emcee was a Joan Rivers impersonator. She introduced the presenters of products in starring roles.
Introduced first was the new Bernette Chicago 7. A computerized combo machine, for sewing and embroidery.

New to the 5 Series line-up is the 560. It has the same interface as the 580 (color screen and ease of use) and the embroidery module is optional. Start sewing now and embroider in the future.

The L 460 also has needle threaders. Additionally, the L460 has a patent pending lower looper threader, a larger waste collector and a extension table to give you more working space.
The perfect partner to the L450 & L 460 - the L 220 – for professional cover & chainstitch finishes.
