    East Central Illinois

    Hi,

    I'm trying to get back into a hobby I enjoyed before my children were born...quilting! About 17 or 18 years ago I purchased a used Elna 9000 Computer sewing machine. It came with a lot of accessories! I've made one throw size quilt and at least one paper pieced wall hanging. It has made A Lot of home decor items like placemats, valances and even a tote bag or two.

    I am interested in connecting with anyone that has an Elna 9000. I have some questions about the different stitches available. My main question is, can I create a serpentine stitch on this machine? The quilt that I made all those years ago, has a serpentine stitch on it and now I'm wondering if I used a sewing machine at the shop that taught the quilting class. I have looked at all the manuals and tried many different ways to mirror the one curved stitch that could produce the serpentine stitch without luck.

    Can anyone out there answer my question?

    Welcome to the board. Can't help with the question, but I did find a pinterest site that had Elna 9000 Serpentine Stitch as the google search. I've never signed up for pinterest and so I get greyed out, it might be worth looking at.

    Welcome from Texas. I'm sure you will find help from someone on this board concerning your Elna & the serpentine stitch. I have a Janome Magnolia 7330 & it doesn't have that wonderful stitch on it. I wish it did.
