Easy threading due to the colour-coded thread guides
This is made easier by the colour-coded threading paths and the lower looper threader. Just follow the coloured symbols and you will soon have your bernette Funlock 42 threaded.
Large working area for large sewing project
With 87mm of fabric passage space to the right of the needles, the bernette Funlock 42 also provides plenty of space for larger sewing projects. Another plus is that the work area is well lit by a bright LED light.
High sewing speed for efficient operation
The sewing speed of the bernette Funlock 42 can be regulated using the foot control up to a maximum of 1300 stitches/minute and enables very precise stitching at every stitching speed.
Convenient extras for more sewing enjoyment
You can store the most commonly used accessories neatly in the looper cover of your bernette Funlock 42, so they are always on hand.
Beautiful overclock seams, even for beginners
The bernette Funlock 44 is easy to operate, even for beginners, because the 15 different stitches with 2, 3, or 4 threads ensure maximum flexibility when selecting stitches. And, at the same time, you always achieve a professional stitch quality. In addition to the 2, 3 and 4-thread seams, you can also provide your sewing projects with excellent rolled hems with a width of up to 1.5 mm.
Threading made simple
The color-coded, open thread path makes the bernette Funlock 44 easy to thread by following the colored markings. A separate needle threader and lower looper threading mechanism also make threading easier.
Plenty of space for your accessories
The most important overlocker accessories are always at hand in the looper cover. Other accessories are stored in a separate box.
Precise and flexible overclocking
With the bernette Funlock 44, your sewing is always uniform, even at 1,300 stitches per minute. The overlocker even sews and cuts thicker fabric with ease and precision, in a single step. The seam allowances cut off during sewing drop into the waste collector that comes with the bernette Funlock 44.
What is the differential feed for?
The differential feed always ensures smooth seams with knitted fabrics and crimp-free seams with fine fabrics. By adjusting the setting between 0.6 and 2, however, deliberate crimping can also be created, as for decorative ruffles.
