Can you re-thread the lower thread that comes up from under the fastening plate inside of the handy stitch? Or are you just suppose to throw it away once it runs out?

Most likely you reload the bobbin with thread, like on a sewing machine. There are 4 or 5 videos here that may help you with your question:

There are standalone bobbin winders available at most fabric stores (ie JoAnn's) for ~$30.

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?

  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

Handy stitch sewing it goes into motion of sewing, but it does not stitch at all, I opened it up to see what it going on inside and I see that the thread does not hook. What is wrong! Can you help me...

First, try making sure the needle is in the correct way, second you have the needle threaded from the correct side.
I am sorry to inform you that these type of machines are nothing more than a toy. As the old saying goes, "you only get what you pay for"

How to tie knot using handy stitch machine how to tie off the thread so it won't come undone.

When you get to the end cut the threads long enough to be able to tie.
From the wrong side of the fabric, if you pull the thread slightly you will see the a loop from the top thread, pull this, so now both threads are on the wrong side, tie a square knot and cut close to knot, you can also put a drop of fabric glue on the knot to help secure it.

Hope this helps, and please rate if helpful or not

It not a nut its a push fit all you have to do is give a pull and the plactic retaining stud will come off with the thread bobbin so you can replace it with another colour

How do i thread the handy stitch sewing machine

Its easier to use the included threader from Japan its the key shaped thing, put the thin wire loop in at the front of the needle then put the thread through the loop at the back and then pull thorugh you will need to make sure at least 2 inches of thread is flying.

N.B.. Make sure that the thread is through the tensioner otherwise your stitches will be loose.
