Necchi 537-L vs. Viking 6000
My wife’s Viking 6000 recently broke while she was trying to sew leather. A friend has a brand new Necchi 537-L, still in the box(we opened it last night). I believe he bought it in ’93 for about $325. Is this model any good and if so, what should it be worth? Would it be better to fix the Viking or buy the Necchi? If neither course is acceptable, what machine shold we consider? Thanks for your help!
