The Elna Lotus sewing machine.

This sewing machine has already got sewers foaming at the mouth. They cant believe that such a sewing machine exists. yes it is a little bigger thans it's Grandmother ( the original Lotus ) but it has all the sewing features that made the original Lotus so good.

Here is the history of this great early version of the Lotus

The Elna Lotus was originally introduced in 1968 and featured  spectacular and innovative design. Protective shutters that were built  into the machine's body replaced the traditional and heavy traditional  carry case. When the shutters opened like a Lotus flower, they created a handy, go-anywhere sewing table. The accessories box was integrated  into the machine, and the result was a streamlined machine adored by  seamstresses and sewists everywhere. The Lotus was Elna's best-selling  machine of all time and a world-wide success. In fact, the original  machine is included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.


new Elna Lotus combines maximum sewing pleasure and minimum fuss. With 

sturdy flaps that help protect the machine and create a handy, generous sewing 

table, it is the ultimate all-in-one sewing machine. 

From the integrated pop-up spool pin at the head of the machine to the automatic 

thread cutter, integrated needle threader and accessory storage, the compact and 

streamlined design aids practicality and portability. Our finishing touch was to 

place the needle bar in a unique position in the centre of the machine to give you 

much more room to move and manoeuvre your fabric.

Simplicity and ease-of-use: that’s the Lotus spirit.

A Legend Returns! Introducing the New Elna Lotus  

 Elna engineers have taken the amazing design elements of the original  Lotus and improved upon them, bringing the machine into the modern  sewing landscape. 

 The new Elna Lotus combines maximum sewing pleasure and minimum fuss.  Its sturdy flaps help to protect the machine and create a handy,  generous sewing table at the same time. An exclusive integrated upper  spool mechanism is specially designed to pop into view for threading,  but to retract into the machine itself for easy portability. But unique  and innovative design does not end there!  The needle bar is located in  the center of the machine, allowing for much more room to move and  maneuver fabric while sewing. 18 stitches, 2 one-step buttonholes, an  automatic thread cutter, memorized needle up/down, and an integrated  accessories drawer provide a wide range of great features. The new Elna Lotus is perfectly portable, and ideal  for serious sewists who like to travel and attend guild meetings, as  well as newer sewists who need to store their machines when not in use.  Visit your local Elna Dealer to experience this amazing machine today
