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.

"Textiles Artist"," 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!


Alan and Steve usually keep a healthy stock of the Bernina 1008S because it's one of our most popular sewing machines. So 9 times out of 10 you can normally take one away with you after your demonstration. Of course we do run out of stock but if that happens we will phone one of the girls at Bernina, order some more and ask them to deliver your new Bernina 1008S to your door a day or so later.

For your convenience you can order your Bernina 1008S by telephone or online from our website, please expect delivery within 1-2 working days of purchase.
We like to use DPD delivery services and if you provide us with your mobile telephone number DPD will usually text you their delivery times to save you staying in all day long watching Richard & Judy....

We offer a full 2 year guarantee with this model in addition to your statutory consumer rights. We do not guarantee consumables such as needles, bulbs, belts or needle threaders.
If you discover a fault please phone us first as many 'faults' are often simple operating errors which Alan or Steve can often resolve over the phone.
Please retain all packaging in the event of the need to return the machine to us.

Please Not: We do not ship sewing machines, overlockers or cabinets anywhere outside the UK.
