The 1955 Necchi Automatic Supernova Ultra sewing machine my grandmother (Nani) bought to sew drapes for the house she and my grandfather bought that same year.
The sewing machine she sewed on until she couldn't sew anymore. And now she's mine.
Every tool and attachment still in perfect working order and all stored away in the little box it came in.

I need to have it cleaned and the insulation on the wiring has corroded so needs to be redone, but other than that, she's in great condition and I can't wait to start using her!
