About Sew Cool
Sew Cool is a sewing machine for children which uses a guarded needle along with a special fabric that allows sewing without thread.
Sew Cool Complains and Praise
Although the official website addresses the problem of the machine jamming, this may be occurring if you are using weak or old batteries. If you find your Sew Cool continues to jam, try replacing the batteries.
It should be noted that you can’t use any fabric, and that you must buy their special fabric for it to work. One reviewer online suggested that flocked felt may also work, and can be found at any fabric store.
Other complaints about the product are that it only uses batteries, and that the needles cannot be replaced, which means the machine will no longer work if/when such breakage occurs. Some users have said the needle broke soon after purchase, while others have said the needles continued to work after a year or more of use.
Those who like the product have said that it is fun, and gives children a sense of accomplishment doing “grown-up” type projects.
