Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I am finally playing with 1 of 3 Necchi's. It is running but was wondering if anyone on here had a Necchi Nova BU? She runs fine and quiet but am wondering if I'm seeing/finding all the oil ports which are not like Singer oil holes. This vintage lady runs smoothly and quietly and she is destined to be a gift to a friend who doesn't have a machne but needs one.
I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
I once had a 50 X 30 pole barn for sewing my tents. DH had one end. I hated it. If I ever did it again I would have only one set of keys. MINE. And God forbid anybody to die and leave us the contents of their house.... At one point I had 30 some bicycles in parts in the trusses. Finally found somebody to take them for the parts - my brother had been a bike racer and he would buy a bike and rob the parts for the one he wrecked. Don't ask. We had camping gear. We had antique furniture from when someone else passed away. Then my DS moved in one end with some metal cutting gear. My area kept getting smaller and smaller and dirtier and dirtier. I became very allergic to the barn - we finally figured it was outgassing from the insulation - I was also reacting to the treatment on the canvas. Then we ended up moving to the city. Try cramming the contents of a 30X50 pole barn into a house..........

Miriam, sounds like what everybody tells me about my sewing room, that I try to stuff 5 pounds of s--t in a 3 pound bag. I'm guessing they think that is a bad thing, lol.........but I love all my sewing stuff.......
Buslady, keep at it until you get the sewing area the way you want it. The whole upstairs really sounds good to me. Enjoy!
Miriam, I am with you on the pole barn. If we had one it would be filled to the top with sewing machines. It's about time for auctions and yard sales to start and DH is already looking to see what machines are being offered. He has no problem with machines following us home I usually have to tell him to hold off on some of them.
Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.
Skip, for the first time I went to the photo shop and was able to actually download the 'whole' photo of your before and after of the W&W #8. WOW! Did you write the name in gold paint? Did you re-paint the bed or just touch it up? WOW again, I know you are probably not home from camping, but that machine is just wonderful. I can't believe the difference in the before and after. I think you should be a machine 'refinisher' on top of being a 'cabinet' man! I was blown away!
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
