Open Thread: Easy Home Mini Sewing Machine

Last Updated on October 19, 2020

EDITOR’S NOTE: Aldi sold this mini sewing machine again in October of 2020 for $12.99. Aldi also has sold another sewing machine, the Easy Home 12-Stitch Sewing Machine, and you can view our open thread post on that machine here

You never know what kinds of niche items may show up as ALDI Finds, and occasionally the discount grocer sells products geared toward people who like to make crafts. One recent offering is the Easy Home Mini Sewing Machine.

What We Know:

Easy Home Mini Sewing Machine

The Easy Home Mini Sewing Machine (product code 98530) sold for $14.99 in 2019.

Aldi also sold the mini sewing machine for $14.99 in 2018 and for $12.99 in 2017.

Aldi has sold other sewing machines over the years as well, including a Singer brand 32-stitch machine for $79.99 in 2019 and 2018, along with an Easy Home 12-stitch sewing machine for $39.99 in 2019.

The 2019 Easy Home Mini Sewing Machine’s features include:

  • Powered by 4 AA batteries (included) or wall outlet power cord (included)
  • Recommended for beginners, basic sewing, or crafts
  • Two speed settings: high and low
  • Pre-threaded with 2 white threaded bobbins and needle
  • Includes 4 bobbins, 3 needles, and a needle threader
  • A built-in light and thread cutter
  • Use with or without the foot pedal

The 2018 mini sewing machine came with a two-year warranty serviced by Wachsmuth & Krogmann, and you can view the manual for the 2018 model here. We don’t yet know what kind of warranty the 2019 model will have.

The sewing machine is a limited-time ALDI Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time, and once it’s gone you’ll have to wait until next year.

What We Don’t Know:

We haven’t used the Easy Home Mini Sewing Machine, so we don’t know how well it works. We also don’t know what kind of warranty this year’s mini sewing machine comes with.

  1. I just bought the mini sewing machine from Aldi for $14.99 and it came with a 3 year warranty. I haven’t used it yet and I’m a beginner so I can’t fill you in on functioning quality.

  2. I bought this in 2018 & now in 2020 have been using it to make cloth face masks. Although basic — just one stitch & no back/lock stitch — it is doing the job better than expected for a toy-like machine. One hint for threading — when placing thread under the tensioner knob, make sure it is over the little raised plastic nib on the machine base. I couldn’t get things to work before I figured that out.

  3. I got this mini sewing machine as a gift. it came with a warranty can I still use it.

    What to do if the bobbin is not working right and releasing to much thread? I can’t see because it is lumps of thread coming out of the bobbin at the bottom how can I fix it?

  5. There are YouTube videos available to fix almost any problem
    with this little machine. I ran into trouble with mine yesterday
    but, after watching a couple of these detailed videos, I was able
    to fix the problems and repair the split seam in my trousers.
    Type in “Ooni Crafts” in your chosen search engine and her
    excellent videos will really help you.

  6. Have just purchased the easy home mini sewing machine but it only came with a European round 2 pin plug adaptor. How do I plug this in to Australian power socket ?
