MAHWAH, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- 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.
