Product Description

Style: LSS-202

The LSS-202 from Michley is a mini sewing machine that features double thread, double speed and automatic thread rewind. You can use hand switch or foot pedal to start. Foot pedal, adaptor, and thread bag included. Uses DC 6V power.

Occasionally, the bobbin case may become loose and move freely within the throat of the machine, or it may pop out. This can be remedied by re-aligning the bobbin. The repositioning of the bobbin can be done by hand by turning it and gently shaking back and forth. If the bobbin is stuck and you are not able to turn it or reposition it by hand, a screwdriver can be used gently to lift it in order to reposition correctly and place the black knob to the left side of the white plastic edge. Please be careful to gently lift the plastic edge with the screwdriver, applying too much pressure can make the plastic edge break.

Note that I don't come with any sewing machine experience, but this machine worked for me despite the last SEVERAL 1-star reviews it received stating that it doesn't work at all. It did exactly what I would expect from a $20 tiny sewing machine, and for the throw away price of $20, it still gets 3 stars. Don't aim for any fancy sewing. It has one very simple stitch. I used it to make halloween costumes that I will only wear one time and for minor fixes. It also sews at a speed I would expect for something so cheap too but it was still 50x faster than what I had been doing which was sewing by hand. So I was happy.

I hate that it doesn't have an instruction manual but I found an instruction video on YouTube ("LSS202 Sewing Machine Quick Start Guide") that was faaairrly helpful. It took me about an hour to really understand how the threading works and how to make it catch the bobbin, but after that was determined, it worked fine for me. Now here's a very important point I'd like to make for making the thread work and the instruction video I saw on YouTube. When I inserted the spool at the top of the machine in that extension stick that looks like an antenna, it absolutely would not work. The thread kept breaking and wouldn't even sew whatever I was running through the needle, and the thread kept breaking. However, when I took the spool out of the "antenna" thing and just used a bobbin in the second location (shown in picture attached)...voila! it worked! the thread no longer broke and it actually sewed! It took me a long time to figure that out, and that was in realizing that that's how the machine had come setup with thread by default. So I hope this helps some of you out there.

I'm a college student, so I wanted to get something cheap, small, and does the job.

This little guy does it.

At first, it was really temperamental. The thread would snap, or the stitches were too loose. But I played around with the tension and was able to get a decent stitch. You just have to adjust the tension depending on what type of material you are using. It's a very basic set up, with two speeds and no reverse. Good for small projects, hemming, repairing. But by no means can it replace a large machine. The needle's not very sturdy, so I wouldn't use it for thick fabrics like denim. And the stitch isn't very tight/secure. And the biggest downside is how loud the little machine gets!

It comes with the DC Adapter and a foot pedal, which most mini sewing machines don't.

Overall, I'm satisfied with this purchase. Basically, you get what you paid for.

I haven't sewed since high school in home ec like 20 years ago. I hated sewing then! So when I recently needed to hem something but didn't want to invest in a big sewing machine I thought the Michley Lss 202 at $20 something bucks would fit the bill. I was right! The sewing machine was easy to thread and easy to use. If sewing had been this easy in high school maybe I would have liked it better! :) I would have given the item 5 stars, but it doesn't have a reverse for the threading. I read some reviews of people having problems threading the machine. Tip: the sewing machine is already threaded when it arrives. Before you change the thread, be sure to look at exactly how it is threaded so you can recreate it. Another tip: you can go to youtube and see a video "LSS202 Sewing Machine Quick Start Guide" by Tivax that shows you exactly how to work the machine. I would add a link but I'm not sure if that is allowed. I've only used the machine once but I'm quite pleased so far with my purchase.

I received my Lil' Sew & Sew a dew days ago, and have had some time to experiment with it. It arrived promptly and in perfect condition. I have been sewing for about 30 years, so I have plenty of experience. Of course it depends on your needs, but for what I wanted it's perfect - - I wanted something for mending and small projects like bags, hats, small quilts, etc. I tried it with very fine crepe fabric, and regular cotton muslin, and 4 layers of regular weight denim, and had no problems with any of them :-)

Unlike some of the other reviewers I found the instructions and diagrams in the manual very clear and easy to follow. Threading was very easy following the instructions in the users manual, and also bobbin winding. I have not used the push-button function and don't know that I will, as I am accustomed to using the foot pedal. I do not recommend using the push-button function as it works just like an on-off switch, that is, when you turn it on it immediately begins sewing (whether you are ready or not) and continues sewing until you push the button again. You have much more control using the foot pedal. *****IMPORTANT NOTE***** I would NOT give this to a child under the age of 10, and only then with clear instructions about how to sew SAFELY - that is to keep fingers and other body parts, long hair, etc, AWAY from the needle and fabric feed. While it is small in size, it's no different that a regular machine, and a child could get hurt.

As other reviewers have mentioned it does not have a reverse, but remember, you can always reverse the fabric *wink*. With the hand wheel simply position the needle so that it's as far down into the fabric as it will go, lift the presser foot lever and turn the fabric, put the presser foot back down, and continue sewing- easy!
