I purchased my Elna 2130, the first machine all of my very own, in Wellington, as a present/reward to myself after completing my 4-year university degree.
This is still my everyday machine and for an all plastic, modern machine you might be surprised to learn that I have never had her serviced, not once. I put this down mostly to quality, maybe a little bit of luck, but also to the fact that, as with all my machines, I maintain her myself with regular cleaning and oiling.
She survived a trip across the Tasman in a suitcase and back again inside a shipping container and still sews perfectly. She’s has never let me down once!
