SOURCE: WHAT NEEDLES FOR SEWING LEATHER ON A LS 1217

The WEDGE POINT NEEDLE, which is designed for leather and vinyl, easily pierces these fabrics to make a hole that will close back upon itself. This eliminates unattractive holes in the garment, and also reduces the risk of the stitches tearing the fabric. The wedge point needle comes in sizes 11 to 18. The size 11 needle is designed for soft pliable leathers,while size 18 is designed for heavy or multiple layers of leather or vinyl.

Singer 99 not feeding heavy thread.


Unfortunately, your domestic machine was not made to sew leather. It can probably sew lighter weight leather with a lighter weight thread. Your thread is most likely too heavy for the machine you are using so it is not able to pick it up properly.

Can the Singer model # 291U3 sew leather?


A lot of domestic machines can sew leather, but it probably depends how thick the leather is and how much you "love" your machine. Sewing heavy fabrics like leather can damage the machine.

I sew thin leather w/Janome MC4000 using leather needle. Want to try thicker leather but not damage machine. How thick will this machine take?


Be careful sewing thick materials with a domestic machine. Even though a lot of machines are supposedly able to sew thick leather & fabrics, it could damage your machine in the long run. If you value your machine, you might want to find a second machine (used mechanicals, older Singers, etc., probably work better for this purpose) to sew thick fabric. Save your nice primary machine for more conventional uses.

Why is my Brother DB2 B755-3 not picking up the thread?


You have to bend over and pick up the thread yourself. HaHa... Just a little humor in the mist of a problem... Seriously that is a tension problem. Adjust the tension dial slightly as you sew a double length of fabric. Sew a little, adjust, then repeat...Good Luck xo
