    Automatic limitation for double needles
    When you change from a single to a double needle, the "double needle button" will help you adapt your needle to the presser foot so that neither needle will inadvertently hit the presser foot and break off. The "double needle safety" function limits the stitch width so that the needle doesn't hit the presser foot.

    Adjusting the presser foot pressure to suit the material
    For some materials, such as lightweight or thin fabrics, it is advisable to adjust the presser foot pressure. Your Bernette 38 offers this practical feature.

    Automatic thread cutter and tie-off function
    When you get to the end of a seam, the thread has to be tied off to prevent the seam unraveling. Normally, you would do this by making a quick backwards and forwards stitch. This is no longer necessary with the Bernette 38, as it has an automatic tie-off function. Simply select the Tie-off button and the end of the seam will be tied off automatically. When you have finished your sewing project, press the button for the automatic thread cutter and you can pull your completed work out from under the needle without having to reach for the scissors.

    Extension table for large sewing projects included
    The extension table supplied with the Bernette 38 is easy to attach and detach, and gives you more space for large sewing projects such as clothes, quilts or curtains.

    Eight presser feet (soles) included – The right presser foot for any application
    With your Bernette 38 you get eight presser feet soles and a stable presser foot shank. You can select the appropriate presser foot for whatever you want to sew. For example, you can choose the zigzag foot for zigzag stitches, the relevant satin foot for your satin stitches and the buttonhole foot for your buttonholes. With the appropriate feet, you can accomplish your sewing projects quickly and with excellent stitch quality.
