SOURCE: should I oil my Elna 3005 sewing machine?

Many of the new models do not require oiling.

Check the maintenace section of the manual for cleaning the shuttle area. Sometimes lint can build up and cause the machine to get noisy.

If it has been over a year since the machine was serviced, it may be time for a proffesional tune-up.

SOURCE: I have an elna lotus sewing machine and have

Is this a Swiss made Elna Lotus with top loading bobbin (check machine plate on right beside power inlet for manufacture details) ? (the original Lotus was released back in 60's but that name has been reused on a number of different models since, some made under licence elsewhere) If yes, then the following applies:

Bobbin should have holes on one side only, always wind it with the holes on top and load it into the bobbin holder the same way so it is rotating anti clockwise when you pull the thread.

Drop wound bobbin into bobbin holder and, while holding the bobbin still with one finger, pull the thread tail towards you into the tension spring, then press down on the thread until you hear it "Click" into the tension spring.

Then hand wind the fly wheel towards you while holding the top thread tail to catch the bottom thread and bring it up to the top needle plate, close the back sliding plate over the bobbin.

Other thing with these machines is ALWAYS hold the two thread tails firmly when you start a new seam so the threads don't get pulled down into the bobbin holder area. Really important.
You can dowload a manual from www.arizonaexpressionz.com for most of the Swiss machines.

If it is not Swiss made one, then your bobbin may be vertical front loading (like the Brothers).

There are threading diagrams for lots of machines at www.sewusa.com, there might be one there that covers your machine.

SOURCE: What foot do I use for strraight stitching I have

Ideally you want a foot that looks like this with a very small hole where the needle goes down, to maximise the pressure onto the fabric. Just don't move the stitch setting to anything that swings the needle or you'll smash the needle onto the foot and risk damaging the machine.

But unless you are having issues with the fabric being pulled down into the feed dogs, the regular clear sewing foot should be fine for most work and is certainly easier to see what you are sewing.

tally_girl_69.jpg A lot of quilters go for a 1/4" foot too which gives you consistent 1/4" seam widths when piecing quilts. There is a excellent website on sewing machine feet and their different purposes, link is
http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ and she has great images of 1/4" foot in use along with others such as Open Toed or Roller foot.

If you are shopping for different machine feet, you may like to look at www.sewingpartsonline.com, great website with lots of different brands. Your machine would be classified as a "low Shank" machine I think; often you can buy a generic brand foot which will work on different brand machines once you are sure of the shank type.

Most sewers find that there will be one foot they prefer to use for much of their work depending on their projects. My all time fav is the Elna Teflon foot, a black teflon coated foot which works great on many different fabrics; I've worn the black off the bottom of two of them!!

Makes too much noise


Check that your needle is fully up into the needle housing, and is in flat shank to the back.

Also change the needle if it has been in the machine for more than 6 hours of sewing as the needle will go blunt and this can make squeaking or popping sounds as you stitch.

Lastly, are you sure that the bobbin case is in correctly and hasn't been put in incorrectly. It should have a stitch finger which locks up into the top of the rotary hook if its a vertical bobbin case and bobbin design which I'm pretty sure your machine is.
