Elna Expressive 820EX Embroidery Machine with 28 Reel Janome Mettler Seralon Thread Pack and 2 Yr Warranty

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love it Excellent instruction manuel, Easy set up and quick to set up. 22 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I had been after an Enbroidery Machine, I knew I just wanted an Embroidery Machine and not a combo. The discounted price of the Elna made it too tempting to pass up. The Machine arrived within a couple of days - I knew the machine came with 100 built in designs, but I was also keen to Download my own by using the USB port. I bought a 2gb USB stick. The manuel said you had to format the USB stick, this took seconds. I bought some designs online in the format of jef - this is the format which allows the Elna to read the design. I copied and pasted it to the USB stick (design & embf) I put the USB stick into the USB port, clicked the USB stick on the screen and the design which I had imported was there. The embroidered design was perfect. I thought I might need the added software In order for me to be able to download designs, but this is not the case. I would definitely recommend this Embroidery machine, I hadn't Embroidered before and found it so easy to use and the designs you can you can Embroider are endless. 09 September 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic piece of machinery. From the moment I opened the box and put the machine on my table I found the instruction booklet easy to read and was embroidering within ten minutes. The Elna reputation lives on. 11 September 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by .Beautiful machine. The stitches are just perfect. I've found it really easy to find my way around the screen. The included designs are suitable for all sorts of uses. Still have to check out just how easy, or not, it is to import more designs. 01 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by it is no good four puting a thing on a babys garment. I am a bit disappointed. That. If you have to undo the garment to put a dezine on it OK on flait tabile cloths. Ect. Or bbits. Of cloth. 02 September 2015
