Question about Sewing Machines
I have an Elna Carina from the early 1980's that is still working like a champ. Trouble is, I don't know where to get authentic Elna parts for it. In particular I'd love to have a foot that measures 1/4 inch for quilting (the one I have is after-market and clips on but doesn't hold the fabric down well). Where can I get genuine Elna parts for my machine?

Try contacting Elna directly, or find your nearest agent thru their website, if in USA ....here
having this photo should help trace a part number if you can get onto an Elna service technician, if it were Janome, I could look up our references, so it should be straightforward.

Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.

High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop.

Thanks for return email.
I took the machine to an Elna dealer who fixed the problem by by-passing the (small board) switch that returns the needle to the ready position after filling the bobbin. It is quite frustrating not having that facility after being so used to it.
