Keeping a needle and thread on hand will help ensure that you can repair small holes and rips if they happen. But there are some sewing projects that require a little more power to get them done in a timelier fashion.
Having a portable sewing machine at the ready can make tasks like hemming pant legs, adjusting the length of your curtains, or making your own cloth face mask much easier than sewing by hand. And according to CNBC, sewing machines have been also some of Walmart’s most in-demand items as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic for the very reason of making masks at home. Keep in mind that this high demand means that the items in stock online may fluctuate.
This sewing machine is equipped with a full range of standard features, including 32 different stitches, adjustable stitch size, and an automatic buttonholer.
Reviewers tout that it is easy to use and its handle makes it easy to carry in and out of storage.
It weighs 12 pounds.
