The upper hook is disabled for this purpose. Our video clearly shows step by step how to achieve perfect sewing results with the BERNINA L 460 and L 450. You will be surprised how easy it is and how many options are open to you -- from comfortable stretch casual wear to your own swimwear.

What is more, the video shows how you can also adjust the differential feed while sewing in order to achieve perfectly flat, wave-free seams. The BERNINA L 460 and L 450 feature innovative micro thread control (mtc) which can even be used to make fine adjustments while the machine is in operation in order to achieve professional sewing results.

Good news, we have now received the
final adjusting tool for the L450/L460.
We have made many changes to the
different looper and overall adjustments
to increase the overall performance of
the machine, and to eliminate skipping
stitches with certain fabrics, threads and
machine sewing settings.
Please compare the gauges next to each
other and see the different measurements.
Please dispose of the original gauge #
22850 and order the new gauge # 22948,
the tension calibration reset gauge #
22844. The service manual is available
on Infogate under US-65564-5 or
It is most important that all (original
and latest machines are being adjusted
using ONLY the new final gauge
Using the original gauge for any adjustments
causes major issues with current
machines and does not resolve skipping
issues with original machines
