Great ex boyfriends

5 Jun

How can this be sewing related with a title like that?

Look what showed up on my back porch this morning.

It only took one call to realize that an ex boyfriend found one on the job. Knowing my extreme love for vintage sewing machines, he dropped it off at 6:00 this morning.

It’s an Italian made Necchi BU. I don’t know anything about these machines except what I just read on PR. Could not be more excited.

It’s going to need a lot of work and I just got the Singer 337 going. But, I think the Necchi is probably a better machine.

I looove to tinker. This is going to be fun.

    It’s a Necchi! I have a Necchi and it’s one of my favorite all-time sewing machines. It makes a trusty, beautiful, even straight stitch and beautiful balanced zigzag or satin. It’ll sew through anything. And, it’s almost as fast as a commercial machine. You’ve got a treasure there, congrats!
