Elna Sewing Machine Sale!

22 Jul

Experience 520cRT

With the sun shining in Vancouver these past few days, I think it’s safe to say that summer is finally here!

I don’t know about you, but even though nice weather calls me to our region’s beautiful lakes and beaches, I get so inspired to spend more time sewing during the warmer months. I think it’s all the cute dresses and warm-weather patterns!

To celebrate the sunshine and being able to sew outside on our patios, we’ve decided to put our Elna Sewing Machines on sale, including the machine model we use in the sewing lounge, our favourite Elna 520!

Our Elna Sewing Machines are on sale from now until August 7th, 2016! Be sure to swing by the shop to take one for a test drive. The full sale details can be found here.
