I am considering an Elna 8000 on E-Bay and would love any feedback you might have on this machine. My current one is a mechanical Elna that is just wonderful.
I have the impression that the 8000 is a somewhat older machine, but it seems like there are advantages to getting one that is Swiss-made. Most of my sewing involves clothing construction and household items. I’d rate my skill level as above average.
It seems like it would be fun to have some embroidery capabilities, but not enough to go out and spend $1000+ for a brand new machine. If I get the 8000, my current machine will go to my daughter.
