this is a great starter sewing machine but it is way too loud! i am a eleven year old kid and a that has a great intrest in sewing but your better off with a needle! it is very hard to put the thread through the deformed needle. and the commercial is misleading. why is the lady holding a huge machine to make a small stitch! and women, would you want to carry this in your purse!?

I bought this as my first sewing machine, hoping to learn how to use one, but this does not work AT ALL! It unravels as you try to sew, or just wont sew at all. The needle is small and impossible to thread, and the machine broke within my first five stitches- it just sewed loops, not real stitches, that unraveled with a touch. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND INVEST IN SOMETHING BETTER!

Hey, I'm a guy and I never used a sewing machine before in my life, but this one worked for me. It came threaded and ready to go. I managed to pull the thread out while performing a test stitch, but was able to re-thread it with the usual amount of tedious effort and the included needle threader.

It works much better than the other reviews here would suggest. The caveat, unnecessary to point out to any experienced sewer, is that since you have to hold it in one hand, you don't have two hands free to guide the material. This might mean you'll have to pin folded seams. Or not, depending on how clever you are and how neat you want it to be.

I bought this little machine to do some hems, but never managed to get it to hold. This is the BIGGEST waste of money. Keep your $12 and invest it in something a little better. I recently purchased the Singer Pixie Craft machine which also allows for doing hems due to it's work arm. It's great! $40.00 at Walmart and the best part it actually gets the job done.

I was so excited to receive my "little sewing machine" until I started using it or should I say trying to use it. It was terrible. Very hard to thread and worst of all IT DIDN'T work. It ran for a few stiches and then would ball up on the underside of the fabric with a HUGE knot of thread. Save your money to protct your sanity. Aaaarrrgggg!!!

I got the handheld sewing machine when i was seven. At the time i thought it was the best thing ever. Although after sewing two sides of a pillow i started to make, the machine broke, and started sewing very losely. Soon there after it just sewed loops. After two months of trying to fix it i threw it out. i am now into sewing, and i would recommend saving the money you will spend on a useless handheld sewing machine, and save up for a real one.

I enjoy sewing, but don't like to lug around my mom's machine for simple things like hems. Luckily, I only spent $4 on this useless thing. I attempted to hem a pair of jeans, and it's fine for about 4 stitches, but then it stops feeding the fabric and the thread gets all jammed up into a huge knot. The box says it works on denim, but it didn't for me. Maybe it was just the material, because when I tested it on a scrap piece of regular fabric, it was fine. Also, it's difficult to make it stitch in a straight line.

A piece of junk. I installed the battery and is no power. I'm thinking may be Home Ease the manufacturer put the battery directions wrong so I try 20 different ways to put the battery. I brought it to Radio Shack to purchase the a/c adaptor and still not work. No power supply go in. The machine can not turn on. I contact the seller. He said that only return my money for the cost of the product no shipping cost. Then I have to pay the shipping to return the product. So instead of I already lost $11.00 Now I would loose $16.00. So that I did not return it and I threw in the dumpster. This machine is made by Home Ease. It's painful. I have try so many hours and methods to make it work. Still no power. It gave me a lot of stresses and headaches. A piece of junk. This product is not deserve one star since we don't have one star on the review :(

I am unsure if their is even a difference in the two products;
Smart stitch (what i received) & Handy stitch (what I ordered) but, I will tell you that the Smart Stitch does not stitch very well at all. There is not enough room between the needle & the "bottom" of the smart stitch to fit an article of clothing in to stitch. Once you find something to fit in between the needle, it will begin to sew (very loudly, as opposed to the Handy stitch that seemed very quiet on TV) & create a preferated line in the article of clothing. All in all, you get what you pay for, well actually not, you get the generic. Welcome to online shopping & Amazon.

I am being kind to get give it 1 star. First of all, it's of very poor quality. I was never able to get it to work good, until it finally stop fuctioning, and didn't start again.
