My bf came bringing me home a brand new/ never been used Necchi 3537 sewing machine from a garage sale. I'm a fly by night sewer, i know the basics and have always ended up using my machine for evil purposes i.e. sewing things i shouldn't....sewing machine service etc. is always very expensive where i live so i usually just end up getting a new machine at a sale or thrift store, one with all metal parts and then when it croaks and i can't seem to fix it, i buy another at a thrift store. This one seems to be really nice, made with the quilter in mind, but the folks who had it had never used it -ever- and over the years it had seized up and needed oiled.
Here's the issue, in my quest to diagnose it, i think i messed up the presser foot pressure which was probably manufacturer set, and even on it's tightest setting, it is still very loose. This seems like a really nice machine and i'm debating getting it serviced.....
i read online that necchi machines are a line manufactured by janome and so it seems that it is worth the servicing, probably around $70.
advice? pointers? anything is appreciated.
