    he just called to ask me if I had ever heard of them. Of course! He bought me one! Its a BF he said. Needs a foot controller that he may be able to get. If not I'll start looking on ebay! Isn't he sweet? He supports my addiction!

    My Necchi BF has a knee controller. Is yours in a cabinet?

    Awesome! Those old necchis cant be beat! I have four and they are real workhorses! There is a yahoo site for Necchis, so you can find a foot pedal thru them! good luck

    I have two Necchis, one was mine, one my mother's. I'm not using either one right now, but hope to use mother's soon. Her's was a year older, but in better shape than mine as my zig zag is messed up. they do sew like a dream!

    well I've been thinking that I really need a machine I can take to meetings with me.Since this one isn't in a cabinet I guess I'll get a case for it. He is rather proud of himself! :-)

    I take it the Necchi isn't home yet. It is not a travel machine, IMO. Mine is very heavy. As long as your husband is so helpful, have him keep his eyes open for a Singer 301. Excellent traveler at 16 pounds.
