This little beauty is from the 60s and was made in Italy. She does everything a new machine does. It's not computerized but that doesn't slow it down a bit. It has an automatic needle threader. It makes 100s of decorative stitches. It has a ton of feet and I was so lucky to get a bunch of original Necchi bobbins. I still haven't used all the functions on this machine like the automatic buttonhole. It's from the 60s and it does that!! Why did it take so long for other machines to do the same thing? I don't have an answer for that but it does make me wonder.
I was so lucky to get all of the cams and feet that originally came with the machine. I don't use a lot of decorative stitches in my quilting but it's nice to have the ability with one of my vintage machines. I don't feel too bad though because the other owner or owners didn't take the ruffler out of the tissue paper.
I did a video on this machine. I gloss over all of the features of the machine. I've done several more videos on the Supernova Julia. I've had requests for more videos so be sure to check the link out as it will always be growing. I don't know if I could ever cover in depth all of this machine. If you are a Necchi fan be sure to check out all my Necchi sewing machine information.
