The 1008 is a traditionally built mechanical sewing machine that provides all of the basic functions needed for general purpose sewing - and at an excellent price.

Supplied with accessory box, standard sewing foot, bobbins, needles, lead and foot control. 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. 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 and 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-foot soles to suit any task, with easy, one-handed changing of the soles. Additional soles are available from BERNINA's comprehensive range of accessories. The stitch selection chart tells you which presser foot, needle position and stitch length and width best suit the selected stitch. Use the setting wheel to adjust the stitch length as wished any length from 0 to 5mm. 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 needle exactly as you wish.
