When Necchis were made in Italy, they were possibly the best sewing machines in the world! A lot of these machines are still in use by loyal owners who wouldn't consider any other brand. Here's a friendly, helpful place to ask questions about Necchis, swap stories, and get advice from veteran owners of VINTAGE Italian Necchi's.
The picture here shows a Supernova Julia, the fifth, and arguably the best, generation of the Supernova series. The Julia, available in pink, grey, and lavender (shown here) can handle everything from chiffon to multiple layers of canvas without a hitch. She also does gorgeous freemotion embroidery, as pictured here, done by one of our members. Arriving to much fanfare around 1961, the Julia was sold worldwide and was considered the ultimate in home sewing with her 200+ decorative stitches (via buildable cam discs). The nearly silent Supernova Julia featured one of the earliest electronic components, the "Microswitch", which automatically shut the machine off after completing a buttonhole or flower embroidery.

We discuss ONLY Vintage Italian Necchis. If your Necchi doesn't say "made in Italy" on it, it was probably made in Taiwan or Japan. We can't help you with these. We can, tho, help you find the perfect vintage Necchi for your needs, and help you get it up and running. After you have been accepted and POST YOUR INTRO, you can ask to join our sister site, the Necchi Sewing Circle.
