Product Description

Style Name: LS-505

TheLSS-505 from Michley is a multi-purpose sewing machine that features double thread, double speed, 8 built-in stitch patterns, forward and reverse sewing and automatic thread rewind. Sews sleeves and had a built-in sewing light. Use hand switch or foot pedal to start. Drawer, thread cutter, foot pedal, adaptor, and thread bag included. Uses DC 6V power. Prior to creating the Michley LSS-505 review, I was curious as to the features and power such an economical machine would have. I found the Michley LSS-505 sewing machine to be a great beginner sewing machine. This sewing machine would come in handy for small craft projects hemming garments around the house. The Michley LSS-505 has eight built-in stitches, forward and reverse sewing for backstitching, and the ability to sew using either the foot pedal or buttons on the machine itself. I would recommend the Michley LSS-505 to anyone who either sews only for basic tasks or who has little experience in sewing and will be using the machine for basic functions. What Can I Sew? Sewing with the Michley LSS-505 sewing machine will be limited to basic fabrics and mending. This sewing machine will be great for an introduction to quilts, sewing linens, clothing, or even hemming. I would refrain from heavy use of thick fabrics such as denim or duck cloth, however hemming jeans would not be a problem for the Michley LSS-505. What’s In The Box? As with most budget sewing machines, the Michley LSS-505 comes with few accessories including; two thread spools, two metal bobbins, one needle, a needle threader, a foot pedal, and AC adaptor. You will have to purchase extra accessories as you find you need them. Pros: Unlike other budget sewing machines that run on batteries, the Michley LSS-505 comes with an AC adapter which will save you the headache of running out to buy batteries every time you want to use it, as well as the extra expense batteries bring in the long-run. This sewing machine is great for a beginner seamstress, or for basic home repairs. Construction: While I was creating the Michley LSS-505 review, I found that If not threaded properly, you can experience issues with the thread tension. You will want to make sure when threading the Michley LSS-505 for the first time, you follow the directions carefully and experiment to make sure the thread pulls easily without snapping. In Conclusion: I would recommend the Michley LSS-505 for basic home mending tasks or for a person new to sewing. You will get minor use out of this machine, and will eventually want to upgrade if you find yourself wanting to take on larger projects or sew on a more regular basis.

At first I was a little wary with all the reviews. Some said it did not work. Some said bobbins were a problem. I waited a month or so and used it extensively before I decided to review it so it would be accurate.

Firstly, the machine is very easy to thread. There is an instructional video on their website:

[...] (Look for LSS 505 under 'Sewing Machines')

This was extremely helpful for me as it was the first time I've ever owned/used a sewing machine in my life and did not for the life of me understand the intricacies of threading and tension. Make sure you follow the threading instructions to the key, or the machine will jam. Threading it the right way will solve this problem.

Secondly, the machine has a bobbin winder with an instructional pamphlet on how to get it working (again, a necessity for a sewing dummy like me). I got it working just fine and substituted the bobbins with the thread I actually wanted.

Thirdly, all of the patterns on the machine work. I tested them all out on some scrap fabric as I noticed some low-end sewing machines tend to advertise more patterns than they actually have (such as the Singer Pixie Plus).

The machine is cute and small. If you're looking for a heavy weight substitute for your Singer/Brother, this is not the machine for you. If you're looking to do some simple hemming and stitching with light fabrics such as cotton, this is the machine for you.

If you substitute the bobbins, look for something similar in size and material. This machine uses metal bobbins. There are some generic metal bobbins which are exactly the same sold at JoAnn's. These have worked for me.

So far I have hemmed and sewn two 24 x 24 inch decorative pillow covers and it still works perfectly.

I bought this machine for a 9-year old.

This is a great machine for the price. I will say that I bought a toy Singer chain stitch machine for my daughter last Christimas. It did not work at all. Singer did not back the product and said I should return it to the store I bought it. My daughter was extremely disappointed with her xmas gift. The reviews on that machine speak for themselves--(I bought it from a craft store so didn't see bad reviews). I'll never buy anything Singer again. They know they are selling junk and don't care. Okay now I vented about my purchase that is laying in the landfill.

Now, on to THIS machine! LOVE IT! This machine is a great first sewing machine for a child. IT WORKS! I tried this one before xmas so I wouldn't have a disappointed child again. I was a little leary when it arrived in the mail because it was so lightweight. I was concerned it would vibrate all over the table or it would be too junky to use. I was wrong. It came threaded and ready to go. I tried a couple of the stitches and the reverse on standard quilters weight cotton. It worked great. You cannot adjust the stitch lengths. There are several stitch patterns to choose from. There are 2 straight stitch lengths. It is also great because you can control it with a foot pedal or by a switch right on the machine. It has a little light to light the work surface. I showed it to my husband and he noted the motor sounds pretty strong. I agree, it didn't seem to struggle sewing basic fabric. Some reviews said you cannot use heavy fabrics. I did not try. For a beginner sewer, cotton is the easiest and most economical. It'll work for that. It is very small and compact. It also comes in a cute box to make a kid's eyes light up.

I don't know what all the bad reviews are for - this machine matches my mother's full sized Singer machine! I've just recently finished sewing a bag, a blanket for my 4 year old and a whole ensemble for for baby dolls! It hasn't let me down! I would recommend this machine to anyone who lives in a tight space like I do!

I didn't want an expensive sewing machine. I just wanted to hem my boy's pants which are always too long, and it works for that. The instructions are pretty bad but with a little help from Youtube I figured it out. I was able to rethread the bobbins and use the thread I had without any problem. I think if I, who has never used a sewing machine in his life can figure it out, just about anybody can.

I wanted an affordable mini sewing machine for small crafts and occasional use, not a big, expensive sewing machine. This adorable little thing is perfect for my needs.

The first thing to note is how small it is. It's really, really cute and doesn't take up much space at all. It's portable and can use batteries or an included adaptor, and also comes with a little foot pedal as well. It comes with 3 spools/bobbins in Orange, Yellow, and Light Blue thread plus a spare needle and a needle threader. All the spare supplies fit perfectly in the little built-in storage compartment. The machine also has 8 different stiches, a tiny sewing light, and a built-in bobbin threader.

I've barely touched a sewing machine since 7th grade Home Ec, but I thought the threading instructions were pretty self-explanatory. There are step-by-step Youtube video instructions, but I really appreciated the numbered infographic printed on the sewing machine itself. Everything was designed to be easy to follow, and I thought it was very intuitive and uncomplicated.

So far, I've hemmed a table cloth and made a change purse and a wallet. I've also experimented with each of the stitches on scrap cloth. It works great. Runs smoothly, and does what it's supposed to. It doesn't work on thick fabrics like fleece, but it's not supposed to. A lot of the other mini sewing machines on Amazon have gotten horrific reviews (horrible function, plastic gears), but I can attest that this one works like it was designed, and has metal parts inside.

I love my mini sewing machine, and I love working on it. It's everything I wanted, including the price. If you're looking for something small, basic, and affordable, the Michley Lil Sew & Sew is exactly want you need.
