Features of the Elna EC60
The right side of the sewing machine has a display of all the available stitches the EC60 comes with. The digital screen and easy-to-use arrow buttons make navigating between stitch settings simple. The display also shows the stitch width and length settings and both can be changed quickly.
Above the stitch column on the display is a small presser foot icon. As you change between your different stitch styles, the EC60 will recommend the best presser foot available for that particular stitch. If you are a beginner sewist, this will take the guesswork out. It gives you the opportunity to associate which presser foot is best for each stitch.
There are also a series of quick-selection buttons right below the LCD screen. The Elna EC60 features an automatic Fixed Stitch button, a Needle Up and Down button, and a Scissors button. Using the Needle Up helps make sure that your needle is in the correct position if you want to use the automatic thread function that comes with the EC60.
The last two buttons are the reverse button and the Start/Stop button. The Start/Stop button can be used if you prefer to sew without having to push a foot pedal. The Elna EC60 has drop-in bobbin mechanism and it also has an automatic needle threader that makes threading the needle quick and painless.
Also on the face of the sewing machine is the Speed Slider. Using the Slider will change the speed from slow to quick. The Slider on the EC60 affects the stitching speed with or without the use of a foot control. Whether using the foot pedal, or the Start/Stop button, the machine will stay at the same constant speed.
The Elna EC60 comes with a sewing extension table, which is perfect for quilters who need a bit of extra space for those big projects. If you’re a beginner sewer who needs extra room to help balance fabric. A hard shell case will help protect your machine when you’re on your way to and from sewing classes. If you are storing your machine and want to make sure it does not get all that dust on it, the case will help with that too.
All of the smaller accessories for the EC60 come in the front accessory tray. The sewing machine comes with extra bobbins, a spool pin cap, and extra presser feet.
