HI. I'm new to the Necchi world but after reading all the SMAD posts about them, I'm getting interested. Have seen a Necchi Nora on Ebay that I'm watching. There's no review for it so wondering if anyone has one or has ever heard of it. Don't know that it's had lots of TLC, but for the price, I'm might tempted.TIA Terri ps machines aren't easily found locally for me, so have to do Ebay shopping and pay the expensive shipping, but what's a girl with
SMAD to do?!

I just read yesterday on the necchi digest, someone saying she Loves Loves Loves her Nora!
(She was very enthusiastic, heheh).
It is not the first time I read that. Probably won't be the last. Shall we read that again, over here I wonder?

Thanks everyone for your information. I assumed all the vintage Necchi's were pretty good machines (probably some of them great from what I've read here) but it's so nice to get info. from some of you who know about these things. Is there a good website to learn about vintage Necchi's? Thanks, Terri

I found this Necchi on CL and was wondering about it as well. It's a good price anyway.

People usually say to avoid the Japanese made Necchi's, even though usually machines in Japan are well made.
You want the Italian ones.

Rob,

I are looking to sell at the 180 (something) or just the shipping cost? I know this post was a long time ago but I just came across it. So, I know it's a long shot anyways.

Thanks,
Amanda
