Using our years of experience teaching sewing classes, working with sewing machines, and learning about how people interact with sewing machines, Spool of Thread has hand selected two of the best sewing machines brands available to stock at our Vancouver retail shop location.

We are dealers for BERNINA and ELNA sewing machine companies.

Both Elna and Bernina Sewing Machines are Swiss designed, and known for their innovative features and attention to detail. We currently use Elna machines in our Sewing Lounge for our classes and for customers to rent by the hour. Our lounge machines are used at least 4 – 5 hours per day, every day of the week, which means our lounge machines must be reliable, functional and easy to use! The Elna machines are just that! Elna provides both beginner friendly machine to more advanced, with functions for both garment and quilting projects.

Visit the Elna Canada website to view their range of sewing machines. Visit our shop to view our in stock Elnas and receive a sewing machine demo.

In addition to the Elna sewing machines, we also carry Bernina. These machines are known for their quality, innovative technology including the Bernina Stitch Regulator and Bernina’s embroidery modules as well as their artisan approach to machine manufacturing. These machines are works of art.

We currently stock a number of the Bernina machines and all are available for you to demo. Visit the Bernina Canada website to review all Bernina models and features.

Both Elna and Bernina sewing machines have a rich tradition of manufacturing machines with a high attention to detail. Our machine selection covers a wide range of features, with sewing machines for new sewists looking for their first, to more advanced models with 100s of stitches, embroidery capable, dual feeds and so much more.

Our retail shop located in Mount Pleasant, Vancouver, BC houses a selection of our favourite models from both Elna and Bernina. Swing by the shop for a complete sewing machine demo of your dream machine.
