Product Description

Comes with Extension Table worth £55 and Freehand Embroidery Foot 24. worth £30! Thats £85 worth of extras!

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.

  1. Great sewing machine so easy to use 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2014

    Always wanted a bernina sewing machine. Basic sewing stitches are so accurate which makes sewing a pleasure. It is so versatile for sewing different fabrics and the interlock stitch doesn't curl up the seam. Love it

  2. Wife disappeared, children in tears: odd result of 1008SE purchase 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2013

    Since this infernal machine arrived a few days ago, my wife has rarely been seen. She's transfixed in her sewing shed muttering "it just works" and "excellent" and "so happy". Meanwhile the kids and I tried to work out how to fit the various bits & bobs into the the supplied bits & bobs box and completely failed. We're heart-broken and frankly devastated. Alison in Peterborough recommended the 108 SE as absolutely /the/machine that Fiona needed. I think Alison may be a witch.

  3. Bernina 1008 SE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Sep 2013

    This is an easy to use, solidly built, good value sewing machine. I chose this one after much research and so far it has met all my expectations. I agree with your previous reviewer that a hard case would have been better, but saying that I love the machine and also recommend it.

  4. Excellent machine & advice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th May 2013

    I use these machines at college and set out to buy one but then began looking at the higher end embroidery machines that would in the future be able to take the software. I became really confused and decided to call the number from this website for advice. I'm so glad I did. The person who picked up the phone was honest and listened to my requirements and reassured me that the 1008 could do everything I would need at the minute. He saved me lots of money and I love the 1008 I bought. He told me to get the SE edition because of the extras and again, it was brilliant advice. My machine doesn't struggle with anything and does exactly what I want it to, straight stitch, elastic stitch, free hand embroidery etc. It's sturdy and reliable. I would definitely recomend this to anyone.

  5. Old versus new 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2013

    Very comparable with my old Bernina machine which is 22 years old and served me very well. Sad that the cover is not a hard case as the original one was very protective. I prefer the original individual feet for different stitches instead of one shank and several small attachments.

  6. bernina 1008 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2012

    So far so good, only had time to play with, not put into full work, but it seems to do exactly as stated.
    Instruction booklet covers all the basics.
