Elna Lotus SP type 35 sewing machine

The machine now up for auction was made in Switzerland in 1975 under serial number R904053. This is the special, utility stitch version of the award winning Elna Lotus design, which was first introduced onto the market in 1968.

The Elna is a small, lightweight and compact sewing machine, surprisingly tough and capable for its size.

The Elna was manufactured to a very high standard in Switzerland and made to last (about 38 years so far for this Lotus), unlike the machines of today. It is metal-bodied, not plastic, while weighing in at only 6kg.

The Elna is being sold complete with integral carry case, foot pedal, built-in light, spare bobbins and the accessories shown in the images on this page. Electronic copies of the instruction manual and the Lotus sewing guide (on CD) are also included in the sale.

The machine is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition, very clean and smart in its two-tone grey enamel livery. For its actual state, please see the images on this page.

The machine can do adjustable straight stitch, reverse stitch (via the stitch length selector), zigzag, buttonholes, elastic blind stitch and over-casting stitch.

The sewing machine has just been checked over, serviced and cleaned; it runs smoothly and quietly and is very easy to use.

This machine will sew a range of materials from the very lightest of fabrics to denim and other tough materials. A video of this actual sewing machine in action, showing some of its stitch capabilities and sewing through heavy denim and soft leather, can be viewed on YouTube via the following link:

Sold as seen – please see images on this page

A fairly heavy item (about 7 kg when packed) – it can be collected in person in lieu of courier delivery. UK bidders only
