Bernina 1008S Classic Sewing Machine

The Bernina 1008S offers the flair of mechanical sewing with the high precision and a wide range of setting options you expect from a Bernina.

Bernina 1008S Sewing Machine


The advantages of a mechanical sewing machine lie in its proverbial durability. A mechanical sewing machine offers beginners the perfect chance to learn the technical aspects of sewing. Sewing with the 1008S you’ll have direct access to all important stitch parameters, and will easily be able to keep track of all your settings.

As with an electronic model – the Stitch Selection Chart helps you to determine the appropriate combination of presser foot, stitch length and width, and needle position. Thanks to the feed-dog drop, free-motion sewing is also a piece of cake. Despite the fact that it doesn’t rely on electronic components, the mechanical sewing machine is technically state-of-the-art: Bobbin-winding and hook systems, feed-dog and other convenience features match those of electronic models, and guarantee the best stitch quality. And it goes without saying that 1008S can be equipped with a wide selection of the most modern stitch plates, presser feet and accessories.

BERNINA 1008: 17 stitches for sewing success

The BERNINA 1008S offers 17 different stitches, including a buttonhole and two decorative stitches. Thanks to this, and the ability to vary stitch length and width, you’ll be able to accomplish all your sewing tasks reliably and precisely. A versatile and basic configuration that makes it easy for beginners, yet offers everything they could need for sewing, hemming, mending or decorative embellishment.

Variable stitch length and width

The BERNINA 1008 lets you alter stitch width and length in order to adapt the machine’s stitches to your sewing project. Stitch length and width are infinitely variable with the aid of their own controls, and the needle position can easily be selected by simply turning a knob. In this way, the BERNINA 1008 permits a wide range of sewing parameters allowing for ideal adjustment to the fabric you are sewing or to the effect you wish to achieve.

Straightforward darning and free-motion sewing

Thanks to its exceptional ease of use right down to the details, the BERNINA 1008 also shines at mending and free-motion stitching. Its feed-dog can be lowered by simply turning the appropriate control dial, quickly changing the 1008 to free-motion stitching mode. This allows you to guide the fabric freely according to your fancy, and to give your stitching whatever shape you wish. Of course the feed-dog can be reactivated just as quickly and easily with a simple turn of the control dial once you’re ready to go back to automatic feed.

Bernina Machines sold in the UK currently have a full 7 year warranty on the whole machine.

To qualify for the extended warranty you need to register the purchase of your machine by returning the completed warranty card to us to sign. We will then arrange for a certificate of extended warranty to be sent to you from Bogod Co.
In order to comply with the extended warranty you will need to maintain the machine and have it serviced within recommended periods. All Bernina sewing machines have electronic stitch counters*, which give and on screen message when it is necessary to have a service. However, even if a machine is only used occasionally and the stitch count for a service is not reached, it is still necessary to have the sewing machine serviced a minimum of every 3 years.

The extended warranty applies for normal domestic use only - not educational or commercial use - and to the first purchaser only.
