    Never thought I would hate a sewing machine

    Thank goodness I got this Necchi 521- FB cheap. I absolutely hate this sewing machine and she will be re-homed. Too much plastic as you can see. She is loud and in my opinion not a precision sewing machine as the much older Necchi machines . Live and learn.

    I understand what you're saying. Others who don't know older Necchis would probably not notice any issues, but it's hard to settle when you've worked on better machines.

    Necchi went through a very dark period after the Super Nova. Their Lydia was perhaps the worse machine ever conceived though it looked cool. They transferred their production to Japan and the quality went down, down, down. The Italian machines are gems. Later machines were made of poorly designed plastic that cracked and rendered the machines virtually useless. I say save anyone exposed to this model the heart ache and send it to the landfill with the rest of it's friends.

    That is a good idea Dan. I am thinking that this sewing machine would turn off a new and old sewist. And yes, I have a Lydia, her name is Naughty Lydia and we know why. Sadly

    I'd just give her a nice funeral and bury her quietly in the back yard. RIP, little machine!

    You also can't see what you are sewing - the front stick out so far you have to duck your head to see and then you get a pain in the neck... Pain in the neck sewing machine for sure... Now you know why...
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I had a Singer like that, it was a real pain and never sewed right. It went to the landfill and good riddance too.
