Rated 4 out of 5 by harrison24 Great sewing machine
This is a great sewing machine, especially at that price. Having used it for over three years, I have two gripes with it:
- it's very fast so if you're learning or sewing very fiddly fabric and tight corners, it's difficult.
- You need to keep holding the back button down to go back so you only have one hand to hold the fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spangolo 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gill15 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.
