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.

Some of the newer Necchi's are made by Janome, but over the years, there have been many "badged" Necchi's.  It might be tough to say exactly who manufcatured it.
