Although it has been around for many years, some of the finest quality sewing is achieved with the Bernina 1008S because of its reliability, versatility and ease of use and very little to go wrong or break.
We just love the Bernina 1008S because we know how good it is. Firstly, it offers exceptional value for money and let us explain why. The Bernina 1008S is made to a very high standard which, from your point of view, means that it will last for many, many years. There is no reason why the bernina 1008S shouldn't still be serving you well in 25 - 30 years time. Just remember to have it serviced once in a while - we all benefit from a bit of tlc.
Also, the Bernina 1008S will sew almost anything and sew it well. It's a tough guy so sewing through layers of denim, curtains with curtain tape, endless dresses and quilts are all well within it's capabilities. And the Bernina 1008S is arguably one of the very best choices for the textiles artist who wants to produce perfect freehand embroidery. Team the bernina 1008S up with a freehand embroidery foot and with patience and practice you will be producing your best work.
So, a simple sewing machine on the face of it, but for those who want simplicity, longevity, value for money and a top quality machine which will sew a vast range of fabrics - the Bernina 1008S is well worth your money.

It was so fantastic!! I went off to uni to do an art and design course and the BERNINA 1008 worked so well!!
Hi?.I spoke to one of you on the phone as I was wanting a machine to do free stitching as I teach Textiles Art in Poynton and my old machine was playing me up. The guy I spoke to was fantastic and advised me to buy a Benina machine. He suggested/ quite rightly that I came over & tried it out first but I had a very tight deadline. The machine arrived by special arrangement and very promptly on the friday. I am not technically minded but this machine & instructions are a dream. I LOVE IT!!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR ADVICE & THOUGHTFULNESS. I will be recommending you to all my students and beyond. Thanks ?.just wanted you to know! from Ali

a fabulous versatile workhorse","I got my 1008 from Bambers in December 2013 and I love it! I sew everyday from dresses to fleece but mainly quilting and applique and the 1008 can handle whatever I do and produces beautiful stitches consistently and easily. Cannot recommend this machine and the amazing Bambers service enough!
