Elna Lotus

A Legend Returns! Introducing the New Elna 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.


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.
