5 minutes later, it just quit working, dead.

The bobbin is impossible to thread, and, if you do get it to pull up the bobbin thread, it only stays that way for a couple of stitches.

Not to mention, threading the bobbin is a pain in the butt too.

Okay, I am a true beginner and I just needed to fix something small, so I bought one of these for $14 dollars from CVS for this one project. It took me a VERY long time to get working once I removed the thread that came in it and tried to put my own in. No matter how many videos I watched online, I couldn't figure it out because the bobbin container is simply different than most.

The top thread is easy to put in, just follow the diagram. Once you get it through the needle, pull the string down through the center of the foot, and around to the right until the thread is pointing away from you.

The bobbin in the hard part.

-You will want the bobbin to spin counter-clockwise, or it will not work.
-The needle needs to start in the up position.
-Instead of simply setting the bobbin in the hole, first pull out about 10 inches of string.
-Around inches 7 or 8, you need to make a small loop (a simple U-bend).
-You need to slip this loop between the black plastic disk and the metal foot (the one with teeth). The loop must reach far enough back so that when the needle is moved down, it will come down on the inside of the U-shape. Then, put the bobbin in the black plastic holder.
-Bring the needle down all the way. At this step, you will be able to tell if you did it right. Pull lightly on the end of the bobbin thread, and you will be able to see if it is moving around the needle.
-Once you have confirmed that the thread is moving around the needle, start twisting the knob towards you. It will not work if you turn it away from you, and will tangle things. As you twist, pull lightly away from you on the spool's thread. As the needle reaches the highest point, you will see the bobbin loop come up.

After reading others' reviews I had high hopes for this little sewing machine, however, my daughter can only sew a few stitches before the machine stops working...the thread keeps coming out of the needle. I do not know how to sew, so I took the machine to a seamstress thinking that somehow it was my fault the machine wasn't working correctly. The seamstress tinkered with it for a bit, could not get it to work either, and simply said, "Send it back." Perhaps I have a defective machine, but it is not worth it to me to spend the gas money and pay for return shipping only to find out that a new one might have the same problem. At any rate, one gets what one pays for, and this is a cheap machine.

This mini machine might have potential after all, perhaps maybe its just misunderstood.

Ive read the reviews, all of them. Then I bought it, as per it being only $12.29, so I had nothing to loose.

Here is what I understand about the machine:

Cheat Codes / Strategy Guide follows -

Following the directions laid out before you in the manual,

:You first place the thread spool on the thread spindle
:You then thread the spool
>through thread guide one found beneath the spool
>along the top of the tension screw, !!!(in the rear beyond the spring and in between the 2 plates)!!!
>through thread guide two immediately following the tension screw
>through the take up leaver, from the direction of the spool to the front
>through the third thread guide found above the needle holder area
>through the fourth thread guide found along side the needle
>and finally through the eye of needle (Very, Very, Very Important >>> )!!!!From the front to the back of the machine!!!!

Pull enough thread to give you at least 5 to 10 inches coming out from the eye of the needle

Next place the bottom Bobbin

>Open compartment
>Take bobbin and place it on a flat surface
>!!!!pull a piece of thread from the bobbin and be sure that it rotates counter clockwise (in other words - place bobbin on a table, pull out thread spinning it counter-clock wise, if it spins clock wise it may not work after being seated)!!!!
>after insuring that it spins counter clockwise, insert the bobbin in the bobbin holder, pull about 10 inches of thread from it, and !!!be sure it spins counter clockwise!!!

I bought this machine and it does not sew. My sister is an expert sewer so I brought it to her for help. She could not get it to make a stitch. I then brought it to a fabric/sewing shop and they could not get it to work. I have never written a review before but I am so frustrated by this product and the hours we spent trying to get it to stitch that I wanted to share with all in the hopes I could save them the same frustration.

I received my machine (5/19/11) and tested it immediately since I took a gamble with the bad reviews. It works GREAT! right out of the box it didn't give me any problem and the quality is very decent for a machine in this price range. NOW, it does have its glitches, pressing the OFF and ON button does the same thing--it speeds up the machine. It's really strange. If I had a camera I would record it for you all.

So in order to change or thread the needle I will have to remove the batteries first, not a big deal. It's still fine for me since I do have experience with heavy duty industrial machines and I only needed this for quick household repairs. I would definitely not buy this for a child or someone who doesn't know basic sewing precautions. I will keep you guys posted if it breaks down on me or if other problems arise. For my personal use I am more than thrilled with this little machine.

EDIT: Had to change my rating from a 4 star to a 1 star. It jammed and just wont go further...
