Elna's Newest "Star"
Elena recently came out with some new machines. One of those was this little half size machine, the Star. I don't usually like smaller machines- for the type of sewing I do I get grouchy when I don't have enough space. Not only that, but many of these smaller machines are flimsy, so I was a bit annoyed when the sales rep insisted we get this machine. When they came a couple days later, I turned up my nose an let them sit in the hallway for a couple days. Dad finally got it out of the box an set it on my counter. To my surprise, it was a nice looking machine! It was cute and so tiny! Now why can't they make "good" machines like that? I walked over, picked it up an promptly set it down in bewilderment- it was so heavy! Now, in the sewing machine world, heavy is GOOD!!! If you have a light machine, chances are that:
1. It's gonna bounce everywhere!!! An I like to sew fast!
2. The inside frame is junk, or there's no frame at all!
I love it, the Star is the perfect size to take to retreat, or on vacation. It will fit into a carry on if you are flying. It sews like a dream, is very smooth and quiet. While it doesn't have a ton of features and stitches, it makes a really great second machine. If space is an issue for you, this is the perfect machine.
The Star is computerized, has 19 stitches, speed control, free arm, up an down needle, and a Start/Stop button. It's a handy dandy machine to have around!
If you're interested in the Star, remember that we have five years of FREE service, and a Five Year Warranty. If you need a small but sturdy machine, the Star is for you!
