My Elna Sewing Machine

I had seen these sewing machines years ago and mentioned it to my sister one day that one would be good to use at workshops because of their ease of carrying them. A few years later I received one from her for my birthday. It had been rescued by her from going into a skip at the college she worked at as they were closing the textiles department of the college. It didn’t work very well and, having got someone to check it over for me, he reckoned it had been used for less than 2 hours and had just dried out!
