I'm debating between 2 older sewing machines. My fancy computer machine is off being repaired and I decided to investigate some other options. Basically my sewing interest is primarily clothing, knits & wovens.

I've been testing out this Elna 62C and like it. I've also briefly tested the Bernina 930. The Bernina is $200 more than the Elna.

I would very much like to get the opinions of more experienced sewers about these machines.

Thank you,
Bonny

Interesting question.. if using the feet from your fancy computer machine on either of the two vintage machines you mention is possible that would decide the matter for me. But I doubt that is the situation. I have two Elna Supers (the blue one - which I think is the 62C?) it is a marvelously smooth stitcher. The 2nd one I have not used - but I found it on a curb, that case was instantly recognizable and a machine was IN IT! I have not had it serviced and probably should find it a deserving home). My daily stitcher is a Bernina 1230. Ask your dealer which they have better access for parts you might need - foot control, that sort of thing. Good luck with your decision. both would be fab machines.

Thanks for the input. I did decide to go with the Elna. It's good to hear that you like yours.
