I thought I posted this yesterday but I can't find it anywhere! If I did, I apologize before hand! I finally decided to go to a nearby dealer to buy my machine per the advice of several of you gals here! Thanks I am glad I did. I bought myself a new Elna Lotus. Got the girls a Janome Magnolia 7730 and 2030DC. So far we are ALL happy with our choices although we haven't really gotten to use them much yet! Quilt classes will be sometime in August. I plan to buy a dedicated embroidery machine and quilting machine later if we really get the quilting bug!
Anyone else here have an Elna Lotus? There were not many reviews of it or the Janome 2030DC because they both came out end of last year according to my dealer. He and his family have been in the Sewing and Vac business for 50 years combined so I feel like they know what they are talking about. I know they knew more than I did! My first machine was a top of the line Sears Kenmore in the 70's. Did all kinds of stitches and monograms. I forget what happened to that machine now.....
Here's your post- you did get one in there!
congrats on your new machine!
Several folks have posted to your original post. Neat machine.
Debbie - congratulations on the new machine! I don't know anything about Elna's except that Eleanor Burns used to sponsor them - good machine from what I have seen... have fun!
Debbie, my friend has an Elna and always had Elnas. She loves them and would not sew on anything else. I think you made a great choice! Congratulations on your new machine!

Angele, I think I am going to really like this little machine. Got the stuff to try quilted potholders to start before my quilting class! Got to get the hang of it before that!
Have fin and enjoy!
