Try downloading a manual online. Only the 1300 MDC manual is available, however, it is the same as your 1300 DC except it has the additional micro-thread control function (which does not change the threading set up). At least, if you can download the instructions online, you can enlarge the photos and pictures (CTRL+) hopefully to assist you to better understand the instructions.

FWIW, the micro-thread control is simply a tweaking mechanism to fine-tune the seam results (pg 25).

You can probably also visit a Bernina dealer and ask them to demonstrate the cover stitch setup.

SOURCE: Threading a bernina serger

Here is a little jingle to remember as far as the order of threads to thread...
Upper looper, lower looper, left needle, right.
Usuall if you give numbers to the threads from left to right as 1,2,3,4 , you would thread it in the order of 3, 4, 2, 1 . Also when threading the loopers be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper thread as it goes out the back.
Hope this helps.

Do you have Bernina serger 1300DC owner's manuals?


This will probably be helpful. Typically, the "M" is just a micro adjustment function available on the MDC machine. The DC machine probably does not have that option.

The workbook is extremely beneficial--perhaps even more so than the owner's manual:

How do I thread the Bernina Overlocker


Depends on your serger model. Best idea is consult the owner's manual. Some manuals are available for download on Bernina's web site (look under Support). Be sure to thread in the order specified in the manual. Usually the upper looper is first, then the lower looper second, then the needles. (Hint: The lower looper thread ALWAYS lays over the top of the upper looper thread in the final looper threading step.)

You can also download a serger workbook too.

How to use double needle


That stitch is called a coverhem or a coverstitch. It is made with a coverhem machine which is basically a serger with an orbiting looper. Many upper end home sergers have coverstitch capabilities (Elna 945)

To use a double needle, simply thread two threads the same way that you would thread one. ONLY USE A STRAIGHT STITCH, AS THE NEEDLE WILL STRIKE THE PLATE IF IT ZIG ZAGS TOO WIDE.

Cut all the threads above the tension disks and pull them all out. Then rethread from the very beginning making sure to thread in the Proper Order.

Threading the bernina 1300DC serger


These things are always complicated when you try to write them down, so I suggest a call to your local Bernina dealer to arrange a quick lesson on how to do it.

If you can go back to the dealer whence it came, so much the better..........perhaps you could go in and buy some things you need and then as you are leaving, make the enquiry with the machine in your car, they may be able to show you how to do it right away......building relationships is a very good way of feeling comfortable about asking for help.

Also..........
If the manual diagram is too small, a local library or stationery supplier should be able to magnify a photocopy for you to see it all more easily.

Coverstitching on White Speedylock serger


Your machine cannot do a cover stitch. Check the Brother website, they make a cover stitch only machine, it works much better than any of the serger/cover stitch combination machines, and it is a lot less money.
