Many years ago, Mom and I had a quilt shop, and we sold Elna sewing machines. Today, I am sewing on an Elna again! I was at the New Jersey Quilt Fest and had time to sit down at the Elna Excellence and work with it for a while. WOW!!! Do I love this machine! Cathy Racine at Charlton Sewing Center in Charlton, MA had shown it to me a few days earlier, but I didn't really have time to sit and sew. At the show I was convinced I HAD to have it, soooooo, it arrived last Friday and I have been having fun ever since!!
