A lady posted a newer Necchi on Craigslist a while back asking $50. Then posted again a couple weeks later. I thought about asking if she'd take $40, but I didn't. First thing you know, it's listed again at $35. That's all it took. It's mine now.
It's a Model 3354, looks to be fairly new, and made in Taiwan, so its not Italian like the older ones. But does it ever sew a pretty stitch.
I looked on E-bay and the $35 I paid looks to be about right. AND while it has a metal bobbin, the size is identical to my Brother plastic bobbins.
Yeah, me! Will probably end up being the church hall machine.
