Did a little shopping today and swung by the thrift store on my way back home. Anytime I check for sewing machines there, they’ve been junk with missing parts and accessories. I nearly tripped over this case which was sitting in the odds and ends section of the store, what was it? It was this:
The Necchi Lydia is a beautiful machine but notorious for cracked gears. I was unable to test it as it did not come with the foot pedal but all these accessories were in the accessory box and at only $10.99, how could I not take my chances?
The Necchi Lydia 544 featured at NY MOMA. It is a work of art! Just a gorgeous machine and I am keeping my fingers crossed for intact gears. I will keep you posted.
