Question about Elna 2007 Mechanical Sewing Machine

2 Answers

Embellishine machine I have an elna sewing machine and love the way some machines can 'felt' fabric to 'embellish' It seems to require a needle with rasping at the point to pull fabric threads together. Does Elna make this needle so I can use it with my sewing machine rather than spend another 300+ on a new machine?

As far as I know the embellishment machines are a special single use item. The needle felting is done by 6 or 7 hooks in a circular shape. They don't have the rotary hook device below the needle plate. I've never heard of a regular 705 needle that has this barb device at all. Don't think its possible.

SOURCE: can't find replacement needles for Elna 1500

Check with a local sewing machine store and ask if they carry needles for industrial sewing machines.

These have a round shaft and may be what is needed.

SOURCE: needle stays stuck whilst motor runs. Elna sewing machine

Its a lovely swiss made machine, this is an electronic motor so the needle pressure should remain constant no matter what speed you sew at. The needle staying down and the squealing sounds more like drive issues inside or possibly gunk buildup.

If it was my machine, I would take it to a qualified Elna technician and ask for him to look at it. These machines are small and well made so well worth spending the money to give it a service and get it back to 1000% IMHO.

Elna 2005 I don't have the manual. Which setting is for the stretch stitch?


A special stretch stitch is not required to sew stretchy fabric. All one needs is a zig-zag that is wide enough and close together enough to allow the fabric to stretch without breaking the stitching thread. (Test it on a piece of scrap fabric you are using, give it a good tug and see if the thread breaks.)

NOTE: be sure to use a ball-point needle. A sharp needle will tend to cut the fabric threads and your stretch fabric will eventually develop holes and runs commonly found in knits.

There doesn't appear to be a manual for your machine, however, you can usually find a manual close to your machine model and the instructions will be similar enough to suffice. Perhaps you will find one with instructions for sewing stretch fabric:

Why won't my Elna SU model 62c feed fabric through?


Firstly check that you have the top thread going through the tension device and threaded correctly, including the thread take up lever, loops on the underside is a sure sign that the top thread is not under tension. With the broken needles thrown in, it does sound like your machine needs some love from a trained Elna technician. Great machine so worth the cost of a service IMHO.

What is the correct needle size for a elna 3003 sewing machine


130/705h, standard sewing machine needle for 99% of all domestic machines. Flat shank to the back of the machine. Sharp or universal for woven, ball point for stretch fabrics. Choose needle size depending on fabric weight you are sewing. 60 for fine silk, 70 cotton voile, 80 for poplin, 90 for home spun or drill, 100 for denim, 110 for coating, curtains etc.

My very old little elna lotus (not sure if zz or sp) has suddenly jammed solid with the needle down through a piece of material. I can't move the flywheel at tall and I can't free the materia


Try unscrewing the needle, and then pull up the plate, and sort outthe threads very carefully with a quikunpick. When starting to sew, have slightly longer threads, make sure they are behind the needle, and hold them in your left hand. Especially when sewing very fine fabric, start slowly until you are sure the threads are forming properly, then it's OK to speed up. Use your ears, if it doesn't sound right, stop immediately. If you are going to use fine slippery fabric, be sure to do a trial piece first, rather than muck up your project. Elna machines are lovely to use, I've had one for over 40 years, still in daily use. Oiled with one spot of oil each time I use it, fluff regularly cleaned from underneath with the little brush supplied.

Elna sewing machine fabric is puckering


Check tension and threading up first, sounds like top tension or thread catching somewhere. Also have you changed the needle, i change mine for EACH new sewing project, needles go blunt and need replacing every 4-6 hours of sewing. Lastly, press seams as you go, this improves appearance and blends stitching into the fabric,

Sews fine on cotton, but skips on synthetic stretch cloth. Manual doesn't really offer a suggestion.


Needs to be a ball point needle for stretch fabric, sounds like you are using universal sharp needle. Stretch fabrics require ball point to push between the fibres, also, a slight zig zag stitch is more durable as when you stretch the garment during wear a straight stitch will often break, need some elasticity in the seams. Some machines have a stretch stitch too.

Sudden knotting under fabric


I have an Elna 2005 machine and had a similar but opposite problem whereby the tension up top was too tight - thread wouldn't pull smoothly. I found adjusting the feed dog lever slightly helped the stitches a lot, even though the needle tension up top is no better. Hope that helps! :-s
