    Petr, here is a link for the Lydia 544 threading diagram. http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diag...ng_Diagram.htm . The website also sells a copy of the manual, that is where I bought mine. The Necchi Lydia is notorious for having cracked camstacks. There is also a Yahoo group online for vintage Necchi sewing machines. You may consider joining that group as they may have a downloadable manual. Good luck.

    Hi everyone! Yesterday I was given my Nana's Necchi Lydia 544, it appears to be in excellent condition aesthetically, has all the original attachments and its original user manual (woohoo!) but I haven't yet opened it up to see if the camshaft is still intact...
    Anyway, the machine seems like it wants go, however we have only been able to get it to spin and thread the bobbin and it won't actually sew.. Does anyone have any idea why that would be?

    owner's manual

    tessy - is there any way you could share the owners manual? I now have a necchi Lydia with no manual and don't want to sink any more money into it until I know it can sew well. I am new at sewing and don't want to mess up this machine by not knowing how it works. Thks

    I have the Necchi SuperNova and my 90 year old machine guy taught me the correct Necchi pronunciation. This should put that part of the problem to rest. He says "Rhymes with Becky!"
