    Good afternoon, I am in the search of spare parts for the Sewing Machine ELNA Lotus, I know it is very old but I think it is an excellent team to [today. Please let me know an email address or web page to try to locate a part of the gear.
    Thanks for your kind attention

      If the model of Lotus is one of the original ones from many years ago, we cannot assist you with these parts. Sorry. I am not sure where you can get these parts as I dont belive they are manufactured anymore. Perhaps try sourcing it on the internet?

    Hello PLEASE HELP. I live in Kwa Zulu Natal South Africa. I’m battling to find a sewing foot for my Elna Q6600. The foot I need is for sewing with Westalee quilting rulers. It has a thicker lip to accommodate the rulers. I’ve contacted Elna South Africa but got no help.
    Perhaps you can. Yours sincerely Esttella Wobker

      The foot you need is the following: LOW shank Convertible Free motion foot set. + you also need this part # which is the ruler foot attachment for the Convertible set: #767434005.
