    TaDa!!! Here it is. It came yesterday, but I had to clean, oil and repair the power cord before I could plug it it. I fixed the cord, and it runs like a dream. I am going to try to sew with it tomorrow.

    It is very small 10" tall and 13" wide! The carrying case goes around the free arm to make a sewing table. It came with 4 feet and 5 bobbins. There is a tiny plate to put over the feed dogs. This is Elna's model #1, called the "grasshopper", it is straight stitch only. There is no foot pedal, just the knee lever.
