Product Description

The cordless sewing machine. Handy Stitch is the portable hand-held sewing machine that packs the power of larger, more expensive machines. It's great for quick repairs or jobs that conventional desktop machines can't handle, like sewing curtains while on the rod, or mending a torn pocket without having to remove your pants.

This is one of those items that really is too good to be true. I've read reviews of people saying that it doesn't work because the stitching just pulls out and because it doesn't have a second bobbin underneath, but that actually isn't true. If you pull the tailend thread through the fabric, you can tie it off and it'll hold the stitching. And the thread actually loops onto a hook underneath, where you would expect a second bobbin to be, and that's how it makes stitches.

The REAL issue with this is that the thread often slips off the the hook in the middle of sewing and you have a bunch of loose stitches. When it doesn't slip, it's great! Too bad it doesn't ever NOT slip. I managed to sew one seam of a dress I was making, the first seam, and after that it wouldn't sew without dropping stitches. Luckily I got this as a gift, and it has inspired me to start sewing, but now I need to get my hands on a actual machine that ACTUALLY sews. Don't waste your $10 + shipping on this!! Put it towards a real machine.

I bought this at Michael's Craft Store, with a 40% off coupon, bringing it down to about $6.00.. and although it may look convenient, if you have ANY sewing skills whatsoever, I would HIGHLY recommend just sewing something by hand instead of spending the money on this handheld sewing machine. It's not worth the money or the hassle in trying to get it to work. It's really loud too, and takes 4 AA batteries, which makes it pretty klunky to hold.

All I have to say is this product is horrible. Thread breaks, hard to use, can on;y go through VERY thin material. Do not buy.

Beginner here. Needle broke within third use. Before that the machine would get stuck on even very light material (summer cotton). Not practical for sewing in a straight line, and the seams were so weak (even after making repeated passes) I was afraid to move my arms when I put my 'tailored' shirt on lest they tear. Very disenheartening. Learn my lesson!

This item fell apart as soon as I started sewing with it, and it required glue to put it back together again. Once assembled, the motor went into some sort of overdrive and got really hot before it stopped working completely. Waste of money.

Verified Purchase
Save your money and buy something else.
I tried so many kinds of batteries to get it going and it still didn't work. Amazon should be ashamed to be selling this.

After so many years of not working, and so many negative reviews, I was surprise to see this product still being advertised. This Handy Stitch machine has never worked from it's inception. If the manufacturer does not want to withdraw it from the market, I am suggesting that Amazon should remove it from their inventory. It just does not work.

This item is junk. Their warranty says it all: the machine has to be returned under the warranty within 60 days, and the customer has to pay shipping both ways! IOW, $5.99 must be included with the machine for warranty service!

This tells me that they know their product is junk, and they don't want to see any of them coming back on warranty.

When it comes down to it, any company who makes a faulty product should be required to retrieve it at their expense, and then send it back fixed!

The machine skips stitches all the time, is hard to use, and the seam either unravels as fast as you sew, or it unravels when you're trying to get the machine off the fabric.

Bad design, junky product, good marketing.
