We have one of each in store for demonstration purposes, and can order these in for you.

Two new overlockers the L 450 replaces the 800DL and has all the same features plus:  LED sewing lights; Micro Thread Control (which was previously only in the higher versions); the accessories are now in the looper cover (rather than in a separate bag) and a hard thread bin to attach to the front.  The L 460 replaces the 1150MDA, and has all the same features plus it comes with a free-hand system for knee-operated presser-foot lift and a slide on table. We currently have a L 450 in store for demonstration purposes.

A new range of Bernettes, which includes 4 machines, an overlocker, a coverstitch and a combination overlocker/coverstitch machine. These are good quality entry level machines and are perfect for those starting out, or for those whose budget does not stretch to a Bernina. We currently have a machine and the overlocker in store to test drive.

A new embroidery only machine, the B700. A great option for those who would like to do embroidery and who do not need to upgrade their sewing machine.
