I have an Elna 6005 for sale, with all of the feet and accessories that came with it. I also have a sew steady table for it, as well as a walking foot, free motion foot, ruffler, combo zipper/cording foot, straight stitch plate and bobbins. The machine works fine, I got a new machine and can't keep both.

The standard accessories/feet include the following: quilt guide, blind hem foot, hemmer foot, overlock foot, zipper foot, metal foot, satin stitch foot, automatic buttonhole foot, cording foot, screwdriver, lint brush, seam ripper, large spool holder, small spool holder, additional spool pin, spool pin felt, and spool stand. I also have the original manual, and the carrying case.

I'd ask $600 plus shipping for the machine and more for the table and extra accessories, but since the machine is due for a 'tune-up' I'd take $600 plus shipping for the lot. I was planning to take it in for it's regular tune-up when my DH bought me a new machine.

I live in Queens, NY, if anyone within reach wants to pick it up, that would be quite fine.

Hi Janny,
I just found this site and saw your entry about your Elna 6005. It has been a couple of weeks since you wrote it. Is it still for sale? Are you having any problems with it? You said it was time to go for a checkup. Also, how do you like the 6005? What did you buy to replace it?

I have an Elna Diva and was thinking the 6005 might be an upgrade for me.

Hi Inglishrose!

I was having absolutely no problems with the 6005. It s a great machine When I bought it, I had wanted a Pfaff with the IDT, and didn't get it at that time because it was more money. I finally decided to go for the Pfaff. The 6005 has a lot more decorative stitches than the Pfaff I got, but I didn't use many anyway.

And yes, I want to be totally up front, it is due to be serviced. I tried to price it with that in mind...I could have it done, and we can work out the price accordingly if that's easier for you.

Also, I haven't a clue what shipping would cost, it's got to be pretty pricey...where are you?

You can email me at <email address removed for privacy> and we can 'talk' about it more if you are interested.
