Product Description

The 1008S is a traditionally built mechanical sewing machine that provides all of the basic functions needed for general purpose sewing - and at an excellent price. Quality has not been compromised as for example it has the CB shuttle found in many of the more expensive machines. 16 stitch patterns including the useful reverse feed utility stitches. Decorative stitches, automatic buttonhole, are built in as standard. The metal casing provides extra robustness for harsher environments and the accessory box slides onto the free arm to give  a simple extension table. This is a high quality sewing machine used by many professional sewers, quilters & patchworkers, schools & colleges.

Thread Cutter:
Easy cutting of threads when removing the sewing project from the machine. Upper and lower threads are safely secured without interlooping until the next time you sew.

Free Arm:
The especially slim free-arm enables easy and flawless sewing of tubular items such as children's clothing, sleeves, cuffs, collars and trouser hems.

Sewing standard buttonholes in six steps couldn't be easier. Add gimp for corded buttonholes to give them an especially raised look.

Stitch Width & Needle Position:
Simply use the appropriate dials to infinitely adjust stitch width between 1 and 5 mm and to choose from 3 needle positions.

Presser Feet:
Presser-foot soles to suit any task, with easy, one-handed changing of the soles. The most frequently used presser-foot soles are supplied as standard. Additional soles are available from BERNINA's comprehensive range of accessories.

Stitch Selection:
The stitch selection chart tells you which presser foot, needle position and stitch length and width best suit the selected stitch.

Stitch Length:
Infinitely adjustable stitch length. Use the setting wheel to adjust the stitch length as wished any length from 0 to 5mm.

Feed Dog Drop:
Some sewing tasks darning for instance do not require automatic feeding. Turn the setting wheel to lower the feed-dog. The fabric can then be freely guided and fed under the needle exactly as you wish.

Bobbin Winder:
For even winding of the bobbins. The winding stops automatically when the bobbin is full and the thread can be cut on site.
