Editors Notes

The Elna trademark has earned a significant place in the sewing industry as a result of numerous groundbreaking innovations. Elna sewing machines have been around since 1940 with the launch of the Elna # 1, the first compact, portable, electric sewing machine with a free arm (when unfolded, its metal carrying case formed a sewing table). The Elna # 1 was green in color, breaking away from the traditional black, an innovation in itself for the time. The machine was a resounding success and so began Elna's commitment to the home sewing industry.

Q & As

Elna eXplore 240 Sewing Machine 4.5 5 2 2
Really Great Machine for a Starter I was a complete novice when I purchased this machine. On opening it, I left it untouched before a few days later going to a Sewing for Beginners class. The teacher advised that the best machines to buy are Janome, but that actually my Elna is made by Janome, so I'm onto a good one with my new machine. It's really easy to use!! Although the stitch dials were somewhat confusing to start with, to both me and the teacher and perhaps a regular Janome would have been better, just for this reason. I've only made a few simple items so far, but I'm thrilled with it! 04 October 2012
Light and easy! The Elna eXplore 240 sewing machine is light and very easy to use. It has all you need to make a garment, zipper foot, buttonhole attachment and plenty of embroidery stitches for decoration. 02 December 2011
