With the grey days outside, we think it is time to bring a little extra fun! It’s time for our Elna Sewing Machine Sale! All in stock machine models are on sale, including the machine model we use in the sewing lounge, our favourite Elna 520!

We have also just added 2 brand new Elna models to our line-up: the Elna 580 and 680. Both offer a larger work area, LCD touch screens, automatic thread cutting and alphabet stitch patterns. The 680 includes even more stitch patterns than the 580, a walking foot, extension table and knee lift. Lets just say, we’re pretty excited about these two!
