Bernina Bernette London 3 – a machine for all seasons with award-winning design.
The bernette London 3 makes threading your machine simple. The built-in threader of the bernette London 3 places the thread in exactly the right position. Simply operate the threader, and the thread is inserted through the eye of the needle. What’s more, an automatic bobbin winder ensures that your bernette London 3 is ready for action in the blink of an eye. With less time spent on preparing your machine for sewing, you can start tackling the creative side of things sooner – so the fun starts with the threading. The bernette London 3 is proof that handy features needn’t be an unaffordable luxury in entry-level sewing machines!
Flip-top lid and dust cover
The bobbin winder, thread tension dial, as well as the spool holder of the bernette London 3 are housed under a practical flip-top lid that protects them from dust. Not only does this preserve the stylish appearance of the machine – it also ensures that the bobbin winder, thread tension dial and spool holder remain in perfect condition. Thread tension adjustment via a dial and bobbin winding are a cinch. What’s more, the stitch chart on the inside of the lid lets you see all of the bernette London 3’s stitches at a glance. You have quick, easy access to all important features and information at all times.
Allowing you to set the needle up/down position manually, the bernette London 3’s recessed handwheel lies flush with its housing – so it’s easy to operate, but never in the way. This not only preserves the attractive closed bloc design of your bernette London 3, but also effectively protects the handwheel from damage, and ensures that the machine can be stowed away in a space-saving manner. A small but effective detail that shows just how cleverly thought out the bernette London 3’s design is, with the aim of making sewing even more convenient and hassle-free.
Easy stitch selection via the pattern selector dial
Finding the right stitch in an instant is no problem with the bernette London 3. A buttonhole stitch, two decorative stitches, a quilting stitch, a full seven stretch stitches and ten different practical stitches can be quickly and easily accessed via the pattern selector dial. Double needles can also be used with the bernette London 3. Together with the four presser feet that come as standard with this machine, there’s quite a lot you can do with these stitches! Simply select the stitch you want on the dial and sew away. The number of the selected stitch will appear on the digital display on the front of the bernette London 3.
Two-level presser foot lift for thick and thin fabrics
When thicker materials or several layers of fabric are to be sewn, space quickly becomes tight under the presser foot. Not so with the bernette London 3. Its two-level presser foot lift lets you raise the presser foot extra high, allowing several layers of denim or other heavy fabrics to be comfortably placed underneath. This means that the bernette London 3 lets you accomodate the space under the presser foot to whatever your needs happen to be.

Seam guide right
An invaluable tool for achieving straight edges and parallel seams.
Holes and tears are quickly darned with the aid of the darning plate.
The bernette bobbins always maintain the thread tension consistent. It enables you to produce accurate sewing and embroidery projects.
The Zigzag presser foot is a true all-rounder and is suitable for all the common sewing works. It is also optimal for special sewing projects.
Buttonhole foot with slide
The buttonholes can be sewn easily in different versions and either with or without using cord. Any number of buttonholes can be sewn at exactly the same length.
With this presser foot not only buttons of different sizes can be sewn on but also rings or hooks. The Button sew-on foot provides a slip-resistant sole so that the button cannot slip away.
Due to the narrow shape, zippers in various versions can be sewn in easily. The fabric is fed evenly while you can sew along the coils very closely.
