When I turned twelve years old, my grandmother was incredibly excited to give me a handheld sewing machine. The handheld sewing machine didn’t impress me much at first, but after I learned that it was a family heirloom, and how to use it, it became one of my most prized possessions. I can’t wait to give it to my daughter when she turns twelve! Aside from the sentimental value of my handheld sewing machine, it proved to be extremely useful, as well. In fact, when I used to work at a corporate office, I kept it stashed away in my desk, just in case I ever ripped an unsightly hole in my shirt or pants. A handheld sewing machine is also great for smaller sewing projects and tricky seams. Have I convinced you to take the plunge and purchase one? These featured handheld sewing machines will seriously change your life.
