  • Permanate Memory Function
    • The BERNINA 330’s broad variety of stitches are an invitation to try out and experiment, letting you create attractive stitch combinations that you’ll want to use again the next time you turn on your machine. Whereas in the past you’d need a notebook to jot down your stitch combinations, the BERNINA 330 offers a generous long-term memory with 30 free locations for your own stitch creations. This ensures that your favorite or most frequently used stitch combinations are immediately available again at the press of a button. The BERNINA 330 offers an extra touch of luxury missing from many entry- level machines – room for your own creativity. The memory function is also a useful aid when the BERNINA 330 is being used as a sewing machine for sewing classes, since it ensures that required stitch combinations are also available again in the next class, exactly as they were saved. This saves time and guarantees identical results.
  • Bright LED Sewing Light
    • The BERNINA 330’s bright LED sewing light let you achieve precise results and affords you a clear view of your project at all times, even with poor ambient lighting. Particularly during longer sewing sessions, an LED sewing light represents an essential feature, enabling you to sew for long periods without eye fatigue. The BERNINA 330 therefore also scores with an ergonomic advantage: – intricate sewing projects can be optimally controlled and the user’s eyes are spared thanks to the even, glare-free illumination of the work area. Here, the neutral light characteristic of the LED sewing light guarantees your ability to judge the color effect of the thread used even while you are sewing, entirely without distortions from external light sources with a color cast, such as neon tubes or lightbulbs. A small detail with a big impact!

The B330 model leads the way in both design and technology. The contemporary style sets a new benchmark in the world of sewing machines and in the home of every sewer – from the creative beginner to the design-conscious hobby sewer and quilter. Inside, cutting-edge technology and robust, longlasting quality ensure that nothing stands in the way of your creativity. Outside, a beautiful, user-friendly design – in other words, classic BERNINA.

  • Extensive Stich Library
    • The BERNINA 1008 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. The BERNINA 1008 places different straight and zigzag stitches at your fingertips – a versatile basic configuration that makes it easy for beginners, yet offers everything they could need for sewing, hemming, mending or decorative embellishment. The BERNINA 1008 also impresses with its durability and versatility, ensuring that you’ll enjoy your sewing machine for years to come.

  • Feed-Dog Drop
    • 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. The feed-dog drop feature is particularly useful when sewing outlines, appliqués or decorative seams, or when reinforcing edges: here, the free-motion functionality of the BERNINA 1008 gives you full control over the sewing direction – ideal for sewing over pre-marked lines or outlines – as well as giving you a free hand with design. Moreover, the BERNINA 1008’s 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.
  • Adjustable Stich 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. The 1008’s stitch width can be adjusted in five different steps via the control dial. Stitch length is infinitely variable with the aid of its own control, 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. The 1008 therefore offers all the advantages of a mechanical sewing machine – state-of-the-art solid construction, ease of operation, clear stitch choice and stitch variation: a versatile mechanical sewing machine covering a multiplicity of uses, designed to bring out your creativity when you sew.

The legendary 1008 model has been a bestseller for decades.
