This 1970s mid-century Amica Super Practical sewing machine is as slick as it is sleek! It runs and sews great and comes with a stitch sample. The machine is designed to be easy to use, but to work quietly and fast! Small graphics found near its various features tell you exactly what those features do, or instruct you on how to thread the machine or bobbin winder.
The Amica is an Italian made machine, so it has style and great engineering! This one runs smooth and fast, and I was VERY impressed with its performance! It features a variety of pattern stitches selectable using a simple lever, as well as standard forward and reverse, button-hole settings, a light at the needle head, front-facing bobbin loading, a single screw access to the lower mechanisms from the sewing bed, dual spool pins, and a ruler across the front.
This sewing machine comes with a few presser feet, an original pedal, and a few other sewing items. Please ask for the parts at the Sales Desk when picking up the machine.
The case is in very good condition. The only part missing is the flat tray to turn this into a flat-bed rather than a free arm machine. It uses standard feet, needles, and bobbins that are all readily available.
13” High x 17" Wide (case) and the machine itself is approximately 12" High x 16" Long x 8.5" Wide
