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, adapter, and thread bag included. Uses DC 6-volt power. This combo kit also includes electrical scissors and a 42-piece sewing kit.
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.

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.
As you research reviews, I think you'll find the overwhelming consensus about this sewing machine is that you are getting what you are paying for. But what does that really mean? Certainly no $20-30 sewing machine is ever going to be as good or impressive as machines that cost 10x or more. As such I would recommend you do a little soul searching on what it is you expect to accomplish with a sewing machine before you make any investment, even if the investment is as little as $30. I'll share the couple of reasons I was in the market and why I ultimately did purchased this little sewing machine.
First, I had a project that required sewing some unconventional material (a bit on the heavy side) and the project only required a straight stitch (nothing complex). I did not want to take a chance on ruining the timing or motor on the family's nicer Brother sewing machine and the task was too big to consider sewing by hand. After watching a video where the user sewed multiple layers of demin, my mind was put at ease that the machine would handle the simple stitching for the heavier material for my project.
The second reason for considering this machine was to provide my kids a platform on which to learn some basics of sewing. Once again, part of the motivation here was to provide a less expensive and entry platform to spare the more expensive Brother from possible abuses at the hands of little learners. Given the price is not much more than say Fisher Price pretend play sewing machines, I figured we could not go wrong.
I have no regrets in buying this machine. It has served both of my purposes very well and I think it is a good value considering the price included a starter sewing kit and the sewing machine.
- Light weight and compact size (could be consider travel size)
- simple mechanics
- Manual or foot pedal operation
- includes a starter sewing kit.
- It's compact size can be one of the bigger CONs as it would be difficult to work on larger projects
- only one simple stitch
- foot petal is small and very light weight
- not for finished projects, (meaning could be used for temporarily tacking together a project or kids crafts, but not really for making clothes or nicer objects)
- Young beginners (who's parents do want to risk having to send their larger and more expensive machines in for service)
- Odd projects that do not require the finesse of a finer machine with more options
- A light weight, travel friendly utility sew machine
