Old Lady

I got this beautiful old lady (Necchi „Nora“) a while back. Tonight I finally decided to try the machine out properly. I was finishing the last of two pillow covers for my neighbor when she said PFFFFFFFFFFFFFF, and let out a nasty stinking smoke. Well, not the machine itself but the pedal. Anyway, no more sewing tonight.

We’ll see if it was the end of her.  :(

And yes, she is ancient.


  1. Oh my Goodness!!! I have this machine!!! Its not just a Nora its and industrial strength ment for upholstery machine! I got mine at a thrift store for 5$ and My hubby completely rewired it. Yours is not dead! They just don’t make machines like this anymore. I’ve been searching the web and these machines go for 250$ easy. So just find someone to look at the wireing and you should be back to sewing in no time. I love this machine, and next to my 1892 singer treadle its my favorite. only one problem with them and thats that you have to keep them well oiled or the head will seize up. just drop oil into the oil holes on top at least once a month and they will last forever. sorry I’m going on so much I just wanted you to know that you have a really goood machine there and its worth fixing. ;) Its probably just the pedal and most of those will work on any machine with the right wireing. :) Good luck!!! Sheila
