The One-step BERNINA Air Threader

Simple threading with air and now, you're ready to sew — imagine threading that is actually fun! The looper threads are magically moved through the machine by air with one simple step on the foot control. Now both hands are free to guide the threads. The loopers are automatically set in the correct position of the air threader – no turning the handwheel or searching for the right position.
