Still have a needle ready – Handheld Mechanical Sewing Machine Reviews

posted by ThirtyPCA on 03/03/2010 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Small size - Easy to use if you know how to use a big machine (not too hard to figure out from the Engrish instructions otherwise with help from the pictures)
Cons:
- No good way to start or end stitches - Your hand will get tired from the squeeze action
Other:
Right handed design (cannot be used with left hand) I leave a length of loose thread at the beginning and end in order to 'end'. At the last stitch, I use a regular need to feed the extra loose thread through the last loop on the bottomside- this will lock the stiches in place.
Bottomline:
Good for light jobs, such as hemming pants and seams. Wouldn't recommend denim, curtains, heavy linens.
