    If I were planning to purchase a new sewing machine, I probably would not look at Elna. Elna had some great vintage machines, but 15 years ago when I worked in a sewing machine dealership their machines were not good compared to other name brands. I have not heard of any great turn-around in their quality, so Elna would probably be out of the running for me.

    I found the following user reviews:

    http://sewing.patternreview.com/Sewi.../Review/1/4274
    http://sewing.patternreview.com/Sewi.../Review/1/4243

    Seems kind of pricey to me. As a quilter, I would probably prefer a Janome MC-6600-P .
