Magic Stitch is a cordless, portable sewing machine that you can use to quickly sew virtually any two pieces of fabric together or attach buttons or other fasteners to almost any fabric. This battery-operated sewing machine is only about the size of a stapler, so you'll be able to carry yours almost anywhere with you. Depending on the size of your purse, it may even fit inside. The sewing machine comes with three miniature spools of thread to get you started with your sewing tasks.
The cost of Magic Stitch is $14.99 plus $5.95 shipping, for a total price of $20.94.
Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: buymagicstitch.com
To begin using your Magic Stitch sewing machine, attach a spool of thread to the outside of the machine and then thread the needle at the front of the machine. For more detailed instructions on how to do this, consult your instruction manual.
After your needle has been threaded, you can then use your portable sewing machine to sew any two pieces of fabric together, in order to create new items or fix existing items. The machine will work as effectively on fine fabrics such as satin as it does on heavier fabrics such as denim. You'll also be able to use your sewing machine to attach buttons, hooks, buckles, bells or any other decorations or fasteners of your choice to a variety of fabrics. While you're using the machine, the thicker side should be facing downward and the thinner side upward.
When you're done using your machine, release any pressure that you've put on its handle and find a safe place to store it until its next use. If you're at home, it'll fit in most drawers, and if you're on the go, it'll fit in a variety of bags or briefcases or the glove compartment of your car.
This sewing machine will fit in the palm of most people's hands, so even if you're inexperienced when it comes to sewing, you'll likely be able to operate this particular machine with just one hand.
Each Magic Stitch machine is battery operated, which means that there's no cord attached to any of them. As a result, you won't have to make room for a cord wherever you're storing your machine, or carry a cord along with you when you're taking your machine away from home. Due to the lack of electricity required to operate one of these machines, you'll be able to pull yours out and use it almost anywhere at any time, as long as its batteries are charged.
You'll get three miniature spools to attach to your portable sewing machine, but each machine is also able to accommodate larger spools of thread. To use a larger one, just attach the extension spindle (included) to one side of your machine and add a larger spool of thread to it. Then, thread your needle as usual.
The Magic Stitch sewing machine doesn't only offer a straight stitch. Instead, if you'd like, you'll be able to go around corners and curves found within certain pieces of clothing or other items made of fabric by using an attractive curving stitch. If you're an experienced seamster or seamstress, you may also want to start experimenting with using your curved stitch to create unique-looking designs on fabric.
This portable sewing machine will definitely come in handy if you need to perform a clothing repair while you're on the go, such as re-hemming a broken hem or sewing on a broken strap. You'll even have the option of using it to repair a split pair of pants before a big meeting or presentation at work or school. With one of these sewing machines on hand, there'll be no such thing as a huge clothing disaster any longer, as you'll always be able to make yourself look presentable.
The Magic Stitch machine is a good one for beginners with little sewing experience to start with, including older children and teens. Using one of these sewing machines won't be as awkward as learning to use a larger one since holding onto one will feel similar to holding an office stapler. Plus, you won't have to deal with learning to use foot pedals as a newbie. After you master the skills of sewing with one of these compact machines, you may want to move onto a larger model, or you may like this one so much you'll stick with it.
This compact sewing machine is also ideal for crafting since you'll be able to get it out and ready in just a couple of minutes. As a result, you'll be able to focus solely on setting up your other supplies and figuring out a plan for your work instead of wasting your energy by setting up a large sewing machine.
With each Magic Stitch sewing machine, you'll receive five EZ Buttons that you can quickly add to a pair of jeans to make the waistline smaller or bigger. You'll also get one Button Wizard, a device to be used to attach buttons to clothing or other fabric items. After you attach a button with this tool, it'll appear as if you sewed the button on with thread, but the threadlike material that comes out of this device won't unravel.
You must use 4 AA batteries in order to operate one of these sewing machines, but batteries don't come with any of the machines, so you'll need to obtain them yourself. You'll also need to make sure you have replacements on hand if you want to be able to use your machine at any time without running to the store. Although you can recharge the batteries in some compact devices by plugging them into a computer or tablet via a USB cable, that's not an option with any of these machines.
If you're not skilled with using a larger sewing machine, you might find that you take items to a tailor's to be fixed or altered quite often. However, you may not have to do this any longer once you've got a Magic Stitch machine that's less complex than a larger one. You may instead find that you're able to repair or alter your clothing yourself and you can close down your account with the tailor. You might also notice that you don't need to replace damaged items of clothing as often as you did in the past since you'll have the ability to quickly repair them yourself.
While you're using one of these sewing machines, make sure the correct side is facing upward (the narrower side) and that the machine is completely flat as it moves along any fabric. If it's tilted to either side as you make your stitches, you may end up with raggedy-looking stitches that don't fit the definition of being straight or curved.

The commercial shows a guy with camo uniform shirt looking like he's about to sew a US flag on it. I think that's a real stretch without a long stitching arm to go in the sleeve to sew it on.

While I can't speak for this particular model I CAN tell you of my experience with the first generation of these items about 20 years ago when it was called "Handy Stitch" Back then AND it had the Singer Logo on it to give it an air of "quality" and it was as seen on TV only and it was 19.99 for one unit only-no BOGO. Then when you received the unit, you had an additional "offer" to buy the ac adapter for another 10.00. Let me save you some time AND money-this thing is a piece of junk. It wouldn't even sew two paper towels together (I Jest) -but seriously, the only magic you'll see is your money disappearing! Sorry for the bad news but I call them as I see them.
