I find Mini Sewing Machine cute adorable thing. I am seeing this handheld sewing machine around for many years. It looks like a toy and I enjoy holding it in my hand for fun.
I remember, many years back, some women (my mom included) used to keep needle and thread in their purses, for emergency use! When I look at this thing, I wish my mom was around and I could gift it to her. I am sure she would have loved it, for emergency use!
I done a good research about this mini machine. If you are planning to buy a handheld sewing machine for yourself or for gifting, read my research guide.

Faq - HOW TO USE mINI sEWING mACHINE
I am convinced that a handheld machine is good for gifting or for mending dresses but I suggest before buying it, you must know how it works.
Click on each box below, to know answers of your questions.
1.PROPER WAY TO HOLD
Hold the machine with your right hand,placing the thumb on top of the machine with the fingers supporting the bottom.
2.THREADING THE MACHINE
Insert a Bobbin filled with thread through loop-1 and loop-2(while using an spool so not lead the thread through loop-1 and lead direct to loop-2) then through the tension adjusting discs.
Next pull the thread further and guide it through the hook near the needle's back.
Now guide the thread through the needle from right to left with the help of the Threader
Through the needle from right to left with the help of the Threader.
3. POSITIONING THE CLOTH
Raise the cloth fastening plate with your right-hand's forefinger and place the cloth under the Fastening plate.
4 ADJUST THREAD TENSION
The cloth self-Feeding system adopted on this Hand Sewing Machine feeds the cloth and stitches in proper tension automatically.
However, a few helpful hints. ->If stitching is too tight, turn Tension Nut slightly to left.
->If stitching is too loose, turn Tension Nut slightly to right.
5 SEWING OPERATION
Hold the left end of cloth with your left hand and press the needle into the cloth all the way by gripping the machine gently as you move the machine to the right while pulling the cloth slightly to the left.
6.SET A SPOOL OF THREAD
If bobbin gets empty or some other colors thread is required. Remove the small size bobbin from the Machine (leave the red washer in original position.) connect the Auxillary Axis (Rod) to secure the spool.
When a larger spool is adapted recheck thread tension and adjust tension if necessary
Use cotton Thread 50-60 or polyester spun Thread for best results.
I am sure you would have come across so many reviews and advertisements making us believe that we must have a handheld small version of a sewing machine for that last minute mending of dress.
