Better than expected – Handheld Mechanical Sewing Machine Reviews

posted by maxmedic on 06/26/2009 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-Came threaded and ready to go
-Works great
-Small
-Seems pretty reliable so far
-The stitch looks decent
Cons:
-The thread it comes with is junk
-It says "spring come" on the side
-It is a little difficult to thread, but no worse than a full size sewing machine
-The stitch will unravel if the ends are not tied well
Other:
Bottomline:
Sewing, as a concept, is easy to grasp. Unfortunately it isn't so easy to do well. This tool makes it easy to fix torn seams, so I don't have to wait a month for my girlfriend to do it. The quality is better than I expected, and its so cheap I might order another one to keep in my glove box. If you wear a uniform, having one of these preloaded with the right color thread could prevent a lot of trips to the seamstress.
