eBay sellers are turning to Amazon Prime Day for their wares, with some even going as far as buying a machine to sew up a bed.
The new machines come with a slew of features, including a sewing machine foot and a seaming table.
The machines have also been promoted as a cheaper alternative to the likes of a sewing needle, thread, and thread set.
But for some, it’s not quite the bargain it’s made out to be.
One seller, who goes by the name of “The Ease of Sewing”, says the machine was a “massive disappointment”, with some parts “barely working”.
“I’m not really a big fan of sewing machines and I’ve had issues with them,” she said.
“So, I was quite disappointed with them.”
I bought the machine because I’d heard it was the best machine for sewing, but I was actually quite disappointed.
“The seller said she wanted a machine with the best stitching features and the best sewing experience, but said it didn’t fit her needs.
She said she’s used other machines on eBay before, but the price tag was so high she couldn’t justify it.”
The price of the machine definitely made me think that the quality was very poor,” she told ABC News.”
They’ve got an awful lot of stuff on there that’s pretty basic and there’s also a lot of items that they’ve put on there with the idea that they’ll get better quality and more useful features, but it’s really not.
“In the past, some of the best selling machines have come from Amazon, with the machine featured in the show The Ease Of Sewing.
Amazon Prime Day also features a number of deals, including $5 off any item up to $100.
The company has also started a campaign on its website urging sellers to buy more sewing machines.
