I'm in desperate need of a replacement zipper foot for my vintage Elna Supe 62C. Can anyone help me?

There is a Yahoo group for vintage Elnas... and there is one guy on there (IIRC) who seems to sell lots of parts.
(I haven't been on it in quite a while, though - so your mileage may vary)
Otherwise... check eBay.
Elna dealers (at least here) still have feet available. Got an Elna dealer near you?

My Elna is a bit older than yours. It is a low shank. If yours is too, a generic one from a fabric store or sewing machine shop should fit. it may get you through until you get an original. Those Elna attachments are really nice but I have put some generic ones on like a 1/4 quilt foot.
Edit....if you need it tonight and cannot get to my house you may have to use another foot like a piping foot if you have one.

You could get a short shank adapter for your old machine... so you can use a snap on zipper foot.

The phone number for the original poster has been removed. It is not a wise thing to post direct contact information on any website.
Looks like some good suggestions have been posted. Hopefully the OP will find what she needs.
