    I, too, have a Necchi BU, MIRA serie, Italian made. Mine is in absolutely MINT condition! One owner, constant upkeep with receipts for all work done. Mine is in a carrying case, but is massively heavy! Do you have any ideas where one might sell such a machine...other than Ebay? Thanks for any suggestions.

Bu Mira was made in Italy between 1952-1956 it was the machine where the introduced the Wonder Wheel to make decorative stitches, olive green in color . There are some people who collect them but like all antiques the rearer the are and the better origonal condition the are in the more the are worth.

How do i set a necchi bu mira to sew vinyl


Vinyl will stick to the presser foot so either pit talcum powder on the vinyl or have a toilet roll on your lap and sew the toilet roll on the vinyl then peel it off

Just found a green Necchi BU Nova that is missing a face plate. Any ideas where I could find a replacement?


Try http://www.sewingstyle.com/Necchi-Sewing-Needle-Plates.html - the BU Nova is a 50's era machine so you may have to hunt down a second hand spare part or see if one of the other model plates will fit this model.

Also there are 3 or 4 Necchi Italian machine owner groups on Yahoo, I'd suggest that you join the one called Necchisewingmachineclub and then check out any posts on spare parts and see what you can glean there. Just read the group rules as often they like members to "share" information and don't like newbies to drop in and post a question then disappear. Or ask the same question on several groups (crossposting).

I know that many Super Nova owners love their machines and highly regard them.

Good luck tracking down the part for yours.

Necchi sewing machine


i repair a lot of sewing machines as a hobby .. the necchi is one of the better ones .. they are easy to use and work well .. i almost always dontate the repaired machines to places like "womens shelter" .. "home for troubled girls" or just give them to someone that has nothing or cant afford new machines ... it sometimes makes a difference in their life if someone helps them get started .. modern machines vary from really cheap junkers that somehow work to really expensive machines that do everything but are completely out of reach for many.. the old necchis are better than many new machines but no one knows that .. so typically they sell for only $20 to $50 ... but if you donate a working machine to someone it can help, then its worth it weight in gold ..

They carry manuals for almost every sewing machine ever made.
If they don't have it, they usually will tell you where you could get it.
