  • Quilter's Dream Unfulfilled

    Feb 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pretty, lightweight, compact, average value.
    Cons: NOT better for quilting than any other average home sewing machine

    Summary: This is a list of my complaints about my Elna QD 6003. I decided to write about the cons because most of the reviews I read are very positive, and nobody ever mentions any drawbacks. I bought Elna QD 6003 in March of 2001, and after almost a year of ... read more

  • Elna Quilter's Dream-GREAT VALUE computerized machine with insides of a mechanical model!!

    Dec 9, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: 1. Drop in Bobbin
    2. Great at free motion work
    3. Sturdy and maintenance free!
    Cons: 1. Horizontal thread holder, but not a deal breaker for me either!

    Summary: My Mom has owned one of these since she bought it brand new, she has sewn on it exlcusively for 6 years, quilts, clothing, etc.  I recently purchased one second hand from an elderly woman who used it for garment sewing only.  I use it for ... read more

  • Quilter's Dream? More like a nightmare.

    Nov 19, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some of the stitches are actually usable and effective.
    Cons: Where do I begin?

    Summary: From winding the bobbin to threading the needle to sewing, there is very little that is not aggravating about this machine. After using the same inexpensive Singer for 30 years, I wanted to reward myself with a fabulous sewing machine; I paid almost ... read more

  • It is Quilter's Dream

    Oct 10, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease of use, 1/4-inch and walking feet, needle threader, needle up/down, stitch-in-place for anchoring stitching.
    Cons: The quilting guide for the walking foot does not stay in place.

    Summary: I must say that I love this machine. I've been sewing with it for 3 years, and it is wonderful. I love the 1/4-inch and walking feet that were included, as well as the drop-in bobbin and needle threader. I find the needle up/down and stitch-in-place ... read more

  • Already looking for new machine

    Mar 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quarter inch foot is a big plus
    Cons: Drop in bobbin seems to be a weak point Some stitches unacceptable

    Summary: I purchased my Elna 6003 Quilter's Dream in September 2000 and have been using it steadily since then. I love the 1/4 inch foot--it makes keeping your seams even real easy. The machine seems sturdy and sews nice, but it has a few problems. 1. I ... read more

  • Great Little Machine

    Feb 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great value for money, beautiful stitches, lots of extras.
    Cons: none

    Summary: I was vacillating between this machine and a couple of the different Pfaffs. I chose the Elna because I was most interested in quilting, and the Pfaffs I "test drove" did not perform as well as the Elna. The Elna makes both piecing and ... read more

  • Not really a dream

    Rated Show
    Pros: less expensive than bernina, needle-up down, includes all feet needed.
    Cons: No acceptable applique stitch, needle threader bent, bobbin case sloppy.

    Summary: I purchased this machine as a beginner quilter against the recommendations from my more experienced quilter friends to buy a Bernina. In hindsight, I would have went for the Bernina. This supposed Quilters dream doesn't even have an acceptable applique ... read more
