Can a hand-held sewing machine replace your bulky item for quick projects?
HOUSTON – When you need to sew something simple, you don’t need a bulky sewing machine. But you might want something faster than just a needle and thread.
Magic point says it’s the perfect device for these situations. The portable, battery-powered sewing machine fits in the palm of your hand.
Gloria Quackenbush of Champions Forest had several projects that she could use the magic point for.
“I’m petite and always have to hem my pants,” she explained. “When I sew them by hand, they never look as good as I would like. “
The creators of Magic Stitch make many claims, but the first is the broadest.
Claim # 1: It is so easy and safe that a child can use it.
Quackenbush has read the one page instructions included in the Magic Stitch box. She first tried sewing a piece of fabric before using the machine on her pants. Unfortunately, she failed to make the magic point hold after more than half a dozen tries.
“This is the most frustrating thing that has happened to me in a long time,” she said after several attempts.
The small diagram on the instructions is not helpful in showing users how to properly thread the bobbin. Davis even looked for a tutorial on YouTube or anywhere online. All she found were negative reviews from other consumers.
At Amazon, the product only gets two stars. One customer wrote, “Fair. Not working. Not at all.”
Quackenbush actually prefers to sew by hand rather than with the magic stitch. She cleaned up her review for the morning TV.
“It wasn’t any easier than sewing by hand,” she said. “It frustrated me, and I think it’s crap.”
The other magic stitch claims that you can sew clothes while you are wearing them and the rounded and satin stitches could not be tested because the machine would not stitch at all.
We paid $ 14.99 for Magic Stitch at Fry’s Electronics. Quackenbush says you shouldn’t be wasting your money.
