I've got one of these too, think I bought it last year or the year before. Have not used it really as could'nt figure it out! It has a different threading and winding system than ur standard sewing machines

I imagine its tiny and light making it very difficult to do a decent job

Is this a stitch up?

My g/f got one of these last year - I think she paid £7.99 after they had reduced them

Here is the user guide if anyone needs it (3.2MB)

I'm told it's really difficult to get the thread tension set correctly, and that could be the cause why the needle keeps jamming and/or thread keeps snapping ... or maybe the thing is just too cheap and flexible?

i've used ones of these mini things and they struggle with the most simple and basic sewing i would not buy one for my needs

Good enough for correcting trouser lengths?

Possibly, if you can get it to work.

Of the 3 confirmed owners here, it looks like a 100% failure so far.

If it's anything heavy like denim, that would be a definite no even if you can get the machine to work..


I bought my daughter one for Christmas. I would honestly say don't bother. I have had lots of power tools from Aldi which have been good quality and lasted years, but this is a poorly made rip off of the ones John Lewis sell for £50. As others have posted, it is near impossible to set this machine up correctly. I have a full size machine so I am used to threading, thread tension etc., but this is so poorly made it is very difficult to get these right. The machine constantly jams, thread breaks, it snags and pulls the fabric. I would have taken it back but had misplaced the receipt.

I know you might think, 'It's worth a go for £13', but I wouldn't even have paid that for it if I'd realised how poor it was. It hasn't put me off Aldi power tools, but it has definitely put me off their other electrical stuff.
