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.
