I could not think of another way then free-motion sewing.
Drop the feed dogs, and put a spring loaded needle on.

On necchi model 537L which buttons are for stitch length

It is generally the large knob on the right side about halfway between the top and bottom of the machine. The numbers should range from zero to 4 or 5. Zero is zero stitch length, five would be the largest stitch length.

On Model #535 FA The feed dogs do not come up high enough to advance the fabric forward. Is there an adjustment to raise the feed dogs ? ( Necchi sewing machine )

If you change the number of your stitch length it will automatically adjust the feed dogs. If it is still a problem then you will need it adjusted. Insure that your pressure foot is placing enough pressure that causes the feed dogs to pull the material forward. To adjust the feed dogs there are different ways to be adjusted. I wouldn't suggest you try to adjust the height of the feed dogs.

Does your machine look like the one in this eBay listing?
If so, does it have the stitch number guide on the left of the sewing arm?

Question about Necchi 537 FA

necchi's are good sewing machines, I personally own 2 necchi's,
and I've never had any problems with them and I've had them for around 10 years, here is what I suggest
use a new needle--one that is for the fabric your sewing
rethread the machine top and bobbin--use every thread guide
try a different bobbin
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
call a sewing machine repair shop in your area and ask them how
much a necchi sewing machine is worth or check on ebay and see
what they are selling for.
since you inherited the sewing machine,, having the machine
serviced completely would be a good idea, that way they can check
to see if the grease and oil that the gears and parts use is fresh or
needs to be replaced and it's very important the grease and oil are in
good condition.
and they can make sure the machine's is timed correctly
ask how much a tune up cost for a sewing machine and then
you'll have to decide if the price is what you want to pay.

also since the sewing machine is doing repeat loops from the bobbin
adjust the top thread tension just a little at a time till the stitch looks
normal on a scrap piece of fabric
if you don't have a manual on the sewing machine let me know & I'll try
to find you one.
I've been sewing for 30 years, and like I said I have 2 necchi's already
and I had one other one before these 2 that I have now and it lasted me
for around 15 years and I wore it out making clothes.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy or except another necchi because I know
they are good machines.
I have a mechanical and a electronic necchi and my husband uses the
electronic one when he makes quilts.
good luck on your decision
Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

Necchi Stitch Length

When you press the level the machine goes in reverse. When you turn the dail to O it goes in reverse. The dail is somehow out of alinement and that is what I am searching for the adjustment that would bring the machine to O and the adjustment that would lengthen the stitch forward. When I push teh level for reverse it does go in reverse. I guess the question would be if you would like to lengthen the stitch further than the dail currectly allows how do you do that. THanks!
