Customer Reviews

Hence my rating of a 1 out of 5.

This was a waste of my money; I recommend interested buyers to spend money on a real sewing machine, one that can actually sew and not break.

It seemed like the thread got tangled on the inside or something.

As a sewer for 30 years, some of that time professionally, I can say that this is a great product. No, it's not a regular sewing machine, but this little guy can certainly do your mending work. I bought this because my dogs tore some holes in their bed, and I didn't want to drag out the full size sewing machine. Well, it just chug-chug-chugged through four layers of fleece. Job done!

Also, this Amazon affiliate is top notch. I got it in three days, and they test it for you before they ship it, so what can you lose?

Portable, sews very well for small jobs.
BUT, please do not follow instructions given in the accompanying documentation fully: the manual says to thread through the spring loaded capstan at the top (for thread tension) a few times. Instead, just send the thread once or twice at the lowest position of the spring loaded capstan and see if you can manually pull the thread easily without a hitch. If you can pull manually, then you are set.
Rest of the instructions are fine.

The best mini, portable sewing machine ever for small jobs!

Would have been nice to include the power adapter, but for this price, I am asking too much! You can use any available general purpose power adapter for the same specifications (DC voltage and amp ratings!).

Update: Most people who gave a low rating for this product gave it because of the thread tension issues caused by following the instructions for this model - they all complain thread breaks etc. Read my review above and you have a great product. This product really deserves a 4.5 to 5 stars (only minor issue being this spring loaded capstan at the top).

We bought this for our 6 year old daughter to learn to sew with, but I've used it a couple of times while my machine is in for repairs. It's not a bad little machine! It has 2 speeds and stops/starts with a button, rather than a foot pedal. It doesn't do reverse and the stitches are just one size, nothing fancy. But, it's just the right size for my daughter and very simple to use. I doubt I would have the patience to use this for making clothes or anything, but for simple repairs or for a nice machine that's inexpensive to teach a little one to sew, this is perfect. I didn't rate it 5 stars only because it didn't come with an a/c adapter, so it runs the batteries down pretty quickly.

I read the reviews before buying and I thought, "hey, this sounds like it works." Anyway, I worked great when I was sewing my khaki pants. However, with my jeans, the machine couldn't sew over the sides because it was thick, so it skipped the side and continue sewing. Aside from not sewing the sides, it worked well. It is kind of noise but it works. Its good for fixing things and sewing little things. Overall, I like it. I e-mail the company and they never reply back about where I can get the cord.

This products actually works. The Handystitch, which is popular, is made poorly and doesn't even start. The Mini Rex has features similar to normal sized machines and is perfect for the apartment person.

I got this as a gift, and I used it right away. But after 1/2 hour of use it stopped working right. It makes the stitches, but they either are too loose, or the thread bunches up underneath. I tried the trouble shooting guide and adjusted the tension, changed the needle and did all the things they suggested - but ultimately this product did not work for me. Perhaps in the hands of someone who is very familiar with the workings of a sewing machine the result would be different... But if you are a novice at sewing machines, I advise you not to buy this. It will only cause frustration. I have gone back to hand sewing.

First, I like to thank BLUTEKUSA for speedy shipment - USPS Priority mail.

I have never used a sewing machine until now - I don't even know that I am suppose to hold on to the threads when I start sewing.

I read comments about lack of instruction so I examined how the thread is routed carefully after opening the box. It is great that the machine is already setup as the few page instruction is really meant for folks with sewing experience.

The only instruction on how to use the machine is the "How to mend a seam" page which is really insufficient for absolute beginner. After having to re-thread the needle a few times, I finally get a hang of it. After that I was able to shorten two Khakis pants without problem. The machine sew through three layer of Khaki easily but it does need a little help (pushing handwheel) at the seam (6 layers).

This is a great little starter sewing machine. We got it to sew up little bandannas for our dogs, but I'm sure we'll use it for other things. I really like it, but I'll just say what's wrong with it.

First, the manual is written in broken English and is difficult to follow. It's not the best for learning how to use a sewing machine. We're going to be getting some help from friends who know how to do this better. Also, as another review mentions, it does not come with an AC adapter or batters (4xAA required). Really, however, it's perfect for what it's intended to do; 4 stars only because of these small faults. If I could give 4.5, I would.

On the good side, it comes pre-threaded, and TESTED - there's actually some cloth in the machine that has been sewed (presumably with an AC adapter in the factory). You can begin trying it immediately.
