Michley Lil' Sew & Sew LSS-202 Combo Mini Sewing Machine, Electrical Scissors and 42-Piece Sewing Kit Review
(More customer reviews)I have never used a sewing machine before, but i liked the idea that I can do alterations on my jeans and pants, do some patchwork on my old clothes, and do various jobs here and there.
So I bought this. I was debating between this package and the machine only unit, and decided to go for the package because it has the same sewing machine, plus sewing kit that is supposed to have everything that fits to this small machine, and a pair of electrical scissors!
I did calculations and the package would work much better if the scissors are worth buying. I gave it a try.
1. Sewing machine.
As a person who has never used a sewing machine, the machine looked little bit complicated (mind you that I am a software Engineer, and not afraid of using a machine for the first time) with lots of holes for threads. But the guide coming with the machine explains pretty much everything to get started with. I could get around with the guide. The problem was, though, the guide is in crude black and white print and it is hard to recognize the tiny holes in the pictures. And there's one picture while there are more than three ways to get the thread hooked up.
If each way has an accompanying picture in colors, it would have been very helpful.
It also comes with a small packet that contains a few thread rolls and needles.
2. Sewing kit
I haven't opened it yet, but the kit seems to contain the essential elements.
3. Electrical Scissors
So, here's my problem. I expected a lot about these scissors, because I thought the electrical scissors are a bit luxurious item. But they didn't work when I put two AA batteries into the slot. I tried a few different brands of batteries but they didn't work. It made the motor sound in the very beginning at first but that was it. There is no guideline so I don't even know how it is supposed to work. I am thinking about getting them replaced by calling the sewing machine company.
I will update this review once I figure these scissors out.
But I love this little sewing machine; and thinking I would have fun and save money as well!
