Are you tired of hand stitching an endless pile of torn socks? But afraid it is going to cost you an arm and a leg for a stationary machine?
Well then, a hand held sewing machine might just be what you are searching for. These ultra portable machines are cheap, light weight, and are perfect for on-the-spot repairs of silk, crafts, denim, wool, and leather fabrics.
The biggest benefits from using a portable sewing machine is portability and convenience. No longer shackled to your stationary sewing machine, you can roam free and make repairs anywhere. Instead of being isolated from your family, you can catch up with the latest stories from your kids, while repairing a few loose inches in a seam.
A hand held machine can be powered by two methods, hand-powered models, or battery powered. The cheaper models are generally hand-powered, and usually create sloppy stitches. The battery-powered machines, can create stronger, tighter, and more consistent stitches.
One of the most common problems encountered by hand held sewing machine users is, what to do at the end of of the stitching. On traditional, you can pull the thread, to get enough to tie off the seam. However hand held sewing machines have to be run in mid air, in order to produce enough thread to close the seam.
So if you are looking for a machine that is handy, very light, and portable, then go out and purchase a hand held sewing machine. On the other hand if you are looking to do elaborate patchwork quilting, or sewing a dress then consider buying a stationary machine.
