MAHWAH, NJ--(Marketwire - Nov 6, 2012) - Quilters who've come to expect Swiss precision and innovative design from Elna sewing machines can now enjoy all that and an extra large workspace on the eXcellence™ 760 quilting and sewing machine. It has an 11" sewing bed, 9 mm decorative stitches, and many new features specifically designed for the advanced quilter.
The machine's huge workspace makes it possible to stitch full-size quilts without worrying if all those rolled up layers of fabric and batting will fit through the sewing bed.
The eXcellence™ 760 has 9 mm wide stitches. More than 25% larger than 7 mm stitches, 9 mm stitches bring decorative patterns to life. Its 272 built-in stitches include 11 different buttonholes, 3 different styles of alphabet, and dozens of stitches exclusive to Elna.
Navigation is made easier with a jog dial working in conjunction with a key pad.
The 760 can sew at 1,000 stitches per minute when doing a straight stitch. And it comes with a straight stitch needle plate that can be switched out in seconds -- no screwdriver required. Just pop out one and pop in the other.
To ensure quilt layers feed with precision, the machine comes with the Integrated Adjustable Feeding system (IAF). It uses a patented upper feed dog, working in conjunction with Elna's exclusive 7-piece lower feed dog. When it's not being used, the IAF is easily removed.
The eXcellence™ 760 can also be used on a quilt frame. It has a Start/Stop button and comes with a remote thread cutter port, which can be operated with the optional remote thread cutting pedal.
The 760 has many other time-saving features: a larger foot control pedal, an adjustable knee lift, and Needle Up/Down with Down as the default setting. Plus it comes standard with a large extension table, a manual Cloth Guide, a semi-hard case, and the 15 presser feet essential for quilting.
In the U.S., the Elna eXcellence™ 760 is available only at participating Elna dealerships.
