My first machine

My parents gave me this machine for my 13th of 14th birthday. And it was my only machine until last year.

Mum was determined to find me a second hand Elna, this one came from
The Sewing Machine Man in Mt Lawley. She is a Contessa 710.

She is a great, robust machine but I wouldn't call her quiet.

She requires some unusualy bobbins, if you know where I can get any I'd be grateful for the information!

She might not be new and slick and fancy (and have only one foot and no accessories) but I love her!

She looks great. I love the bag she comes in. Awesome.
(I have no idea about the bobbins - sorry!)
