I bought a Handy Stitch at a yard sale and need an owners instruction manual. I am also looking for a place to buy accessories for it.
You can try Retrevo.com for a manual you can also try http://www.manualsonline.com/ but I think they charge for manuals. No idea where you can get accessories.

Anyone have the owner's manual for a Handy Stitch handheld sewing machine? Or know where to find one?

The reviews on this little stitcher aren't very good, and most of those unfavourable reviews mention that the instructions are so worthless they had to Google around to find this helpful 'eHow' page:
I got my son a mini-sewing machine (not the Handy Stitch, he has something that looks like a toy mini sewing machine) at CVS last spring, he's learned how to sew using it for small mending jobs and he's moving up to a basic Singer now because he's fallen in love with sewing, lol.
One of his friends has the Singer Handy Stitch, and says it works OK, but sewing by hand is faster and more reliable, and that having a 'real' machine like the mini my son has would be a lot less hassle.
Good luck with your Handy Stitcher, I can see where it might be helpful on trips or quick hemming a curtain.
Many manuals are available for printing online. Those that can't be printed will allow you to save or email a pdf to yourself.
