  1. I can't tell what model that one is from the picture. But I can tell you that I treadle two older black Necchis for my quiltmaking and general sewing, and they are the finest machines I have ever used! Incredibly well engineered--and very responsive to oiling, even if they're frozen at first! I certainly hope it joined you on your ride home!

  2. Did you buy that one too? I just love the colors of it.

  3. I've never seen one with different dog feed positions on the plate. Very interesting.

  4. I have a Julia (pink) and a Nova (olive green) and I agree with Dora, they are the most wonderful machines, and are my favorite old ones, as I have a "few" too. Both of mine have cams, and I almost didn't get my new machine, because I didn't think I " needed" it

    1. ( something weird is happening, it won't let me finish typing!) anyway, I did get a new machine, because, well, it was another machine! I would have them ALL if I could! I would snatch that one too, for sure!

  7. hope you bought it. I have that same model in pink and in a cabinet, and it's the best electric vintage machine I've used! I actually prefer it over my Bernina except for machine quilting (only because I can't get the Necchi feed dogs to drop for me).

  8. Only two pictures? I'm thinking that the machine came home with you. And you know, if it did, you deserved it.

    happy sewing!

  13. What a beauty. Did you take her home?

  14. Isn't that why you reorganized your spare room in the basement? More room for machines!!! Love the new addition!

    LOL...all you need now is for your DH to start filling the house with golf clubs.

  16. Did you buy it? and what would you name her?

  17. The suspense is killing me--do you have a new/old Necchi now? She looks sweet, and I love that multiple-choice feed-dog plate.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Did you buy the Necchi? I have my mom's, but it is peachy and not portable. I have never taken the time to figure out how to use the cams. Someday...

  19. Oh, Bonnie!
    I hope she followed you home!! She's *beautiful*!
    Everything that Dora, the Quilter and Deb say about them is right on!... I love my vintage SuperNova Necchi (pink)!

  21. Beautiful machine - are you starting a sewing machine museum? It's amazing all the different makes and models. Do the backroad antique stores have better deals? I've gone into a few asking about tatting shuttles, but not many.

  22. That's what I learned to sew on! Think it is still in the family somewhere! Great machine.

  23. Oh, Oh, Oh, Necchi story!!! I have a Necchi that was my Grandmother's!! In the drawer of the cabinet (that was purchesed with it) I even have the origianal reciept!! It was purchased for $367.50 (cabinet and machine) on July 3, 1968!! How cool is that!! And the delivery was July 4th!! Some day I will even get it working again! (It worked till about 8 years ago, then died in mid stitch the day before my Mother passed!! Wierd!)
