    I'm interested in buying it - but don't want to get stuck with something that wouldn't work on that machine - or worse yet, mess it up.

    Does anyone know?

    If your Necchi has a high shank it will NOT work. That is a low shank button holer.

    If yours is the BU Nova, then yes. I have a Greist (which this is, according to the picture) that fits my BU Nova just fine. A low-shank Singer buttonholer works too, but on mine at least, it takes some wiggling and jiggling to get it to mate to the needle bar.
