Necchi and Treadle
This is a combination of a sewing machine and a treadle that were never intended to be together and it is and exceptional joining of two very best items. The Necchi BU is a profoundly smooth and free moving sewing machine and this Singer treadle is a superior example of a super treadle. Two different entities of the very best joined to make this exceptional sewing system.

This zig zag sewing machine sews as easy as the best straight stitch sewing machines. So why not have zig zag stitches on your treadle. And the Necchi is designed to move and change zig zag stitches as you sew. So much is open to your design and control with this very nice sewing machine.

You just will not find a better 2 drawer Singer treadle than the one displayed here. It is as near perfect as it was the day it left the cabinet shop for Singer. This cabinet is not oak but a smoother wood and is very good looking as you will soon see. The Necchi or the treadle can be purchased separately.

The Necchi alone will be $237.50 or with treadle $200.00. The treadle alone is $225.00 and with the Necchi $175.00. That makes this combination costs just $375.00. It would cost about $350.00 to pack and ship both pieces.

The mighty Italian sewing machine is the Necchi BU. The very smoothest zig zag stitcher made in my opinion.

Note just how well the head fits into the cabinet. Many manufactures of sewing machine use the same bed pattern so they fit the Singer cabinet.

The vertical lever sets the stitch length. Note on the hang down lever on the left side. This was just viewed in the last picture. This lever permits quick and smooth change to the zig zag stitch being made. Permits artistic design execution.

Here the wheel is engaged with the hand wheel and in working position ready to wind bobbin with thread. If a bobbin was on the shaft the lever at the bottom now would rest against the thread being wound onto the bobbin. This keeps the thread tight and releases the bobbin when full.

Pat started treadling and was surpried at how easy the Necchi was to use in a treadle. It takes practice to do fancy stitches by hand as it does to free motion stitch with a jumping foot. It all can be done with this setup.

I'm afraid that Pat may lay claim to this nice setup. She has a Singer 15-88 in a nice treadle now that she likes much but this one may trigger a claim on this one. It is exceptionaly nice.

More things to try. Your imagination is the edge you can go to. It will take practise to get it good enough to use.
