I Regret Buying it!

Doesn't Work

I bought this product based on it's advertisement. The product did not work when I got it. I called customer service for a return label and they would not provide one. I paid $35.97 for this product and did not feel I should pay another dime to send it back. The rep ( Dan ) stated he would only send a replacement. I did not want a replacement because it probably wouldn't work either. I'm a very, very dissatisfied customer.

I have a Question

I too want to get it as a gift. I was wondering does it use regular size thread or does the thread have to be purchased online over & over again?

No one else has reviewed the Handy Stitch yet. Keep in mind that most people only feel strongly enough to review a product if it either changes their life or causes them negative frustration. Customers that buy and item and are happy with it because it works good, generally don't seek out a place to report 'Yes, it works'.

Posted: 18 Oct 2014

Don't buy this product you will regret it. See my review of October 18, 2014.

Posted: 11 Dec 2014

Again, please elaborate on the phrase "did not work. " Were the batteries dead? Did it operate without leaving stitches in place? I want to buy it as a gift and would sure like some clarity. Thanks.

Hi Jeff, I've used something very similar about 5 years ago. It worked, but it was difficult to use. Someone with more experience and a lot of practice may get good use out of it, but for me it was too complicated.
