BERNINA 1300 MDC Overlock Coverstitch Serger

mtc system for optimal thread control

mtc system for optimal thread control

The BERNINA 1300 MDC’s patented mtc (micro thread control) system is a genuine technical highlight, permitting precise adjustment of the over-edge thread length at the simple turn of the control dial. The 1300 MDC’s micro-thread control affords you optimal thread control and perfect sewing results, regardless of the stitch chosen or the material of your project – a clever feature guaranteeing the highest stitch quality to ambitious sergers and commercial workshops alike.

Swing-out upper-knife arm for more space

Swing-out upper-knife arm for more space

The BERNINA 1300 MDC’s upper-knife arm can be swung out laterally from the locking mechanism to provide you with more room for working. When you don’t wish to trim the fabric edge or when you’re working in coverstitch mode, this gives you an additional advantage in terms of sewing ease, providing you with more space to give rein to your creativity. Once you wish to use the knife again, a simple turn of a knob returns it to its place – easily and effortlessly.

Automatic safety switch

Automatic saftey switch

When the BERNINA 1300 MDC’s looper cover or free-arm cover is opened, a safety switch is automatically activated that prevents accidental operation of the serger. This means that the BERNINA 1300 MDC offers greater safety during thread changes and threading up – cleverly thought-out and harmoniously designed down to the last detail.

LCD screen

Key information always in view: the LCD screen

The BERNINA 1300 MDC’s LCD screen permanently displays all important stitch parameters at a glance, so the personal settings and default values of your chosen stitches are always in view. What’s more, the LCD display helps you set the right thread tension: the recommended tension is displayed for you on the screen, and your individually set values can even be stored in the BERNINA 1300 MDC’s memory. Your settings will then still be available, even if you switch to another stitch from time to time.

Convenient features for smooth, speedy serging

 Convenient features for smooth, speedy serging

The BERNINA 1300 MDC boasts a wealth of convenient functions which let you work smoothly and keep interruptions to a minimum. One of the 1300 MDC’s features, for example, is a rolled-hem lever allowing you to switch effortlessly to a rolled-hem stitch and back, without having to change the stitch plate or presser foot. The automatic threading aids, handwheel position indicator (allowing you to find the right needle and lower-looper position for needle change in a flash) and swing-out presser foot (enabling speedy threading) are also particularly ergonomic and time-saving. The most important accessories are easily accessible, being neatly stored in the looper door – so you’ll never waste precious time looking for them.

Front Foot Lift for bulky projects

 Front Foot Lift for bulky projects

The BERNINA 1300 MDC features the patented BERNINA Front Foot Lift, which gives an additional lift to the tip of the presser foot, enabling you to easily and accurately position and guide bulky projects and multiple layers of fabric without squeezing. There’s even plenty of room under the presser foot for hand-knits, or multiple layers of fleece – making the 1300 MDC ideal also for very bulky materials which are often difficult to accommodate under a standard presser foot – and giving you space for your creativity like never before!
