The new and updated Bernina 1008S is a veritable workhorse which is much loved by many professionals. Robust, durable and reliable, this machine just keeps on going!
The Bernina 1008S is a traditionally constructed, metal bodied, mechanical sewing machine of the highest quality. A firm favourite with seamstresses, quilters, schools and colleges, the 1008S is a tough cookie which is suitable for handling a variety of projects. It gives you 17 built-in stitches including straight, zig zag and overlock options together with decorative choices and a 6 step buttonhole. Stitch width and stitch length are adjustable and there is a chart to tell you which presser foot, needle position, stitch length and stitch width would best complement your selected stitch. The drop feed facility is handy for darning and other freehand work and there are a variety of presser foot soles to suit different tasks. Sleeves, cuffs and trouser hems are simple to sew with the extra-slim free arm.
This high quality machine is extremely affordable but that great price does not mean there are sacrifices. The Bernina 10008S features the CB shuttle used in the more expensive machines and this fine model also offers independent bobbin winding, universal thread tension and a twin needle facility.
