Vigorelli ZZ A Sewing Machine Robot (electric motor version) - with all of its embroidery cams, original manuals and a few other bits and bobs.

Bought in the 1950s, this machine could do a variety of embroidery stitches depending on the cam that was inserted. It really was ahead of its time.

Vigorelli was an Italian brand that started as a spin-off of Necchi (being Mr Vigorelli a former Necchi engineer) in the same town. The Robot model was the first one having an internal camstack that let you change up to 5 different stitch “on the fly”.

As you can see in the photos, this model has rusted a bit in a few places due to exposure (case doesn't shut properly). Most notably on the sewing plate, and the wheel.
But, all the stitch cams are there and in good condition.

Very heavy - lots of metal in it.
Save a piece of sewing history before we throw it in the trash!
