You didn't say what machine you have. You'd probably want a heavy-duty (industrial) machine. Domestic home machines are probably not recommended for sewing heavy leather. They may be able to but in the long run it may damage the machine.

Does anyone have a picture of the inside of the Brother 1034D by the knife lever?

Sheryl EvansI would advise you to take the machine ti a Brother dealer & have it repaired. These machine are hard to fix your self as everything must line up to work properly. If there isn't one close to you there is an online called 'Ken's Sewing Center'. They are authorized dealers & very reasonable. Do a search & it should come up. :) I have used them before & they are excellent to work with. They also do online layaways so it you need anything they will help with it. I am only a customer & not affiliated wilt the, in any way. :)

    Don't know what the blue buttons on Sew D'Lite are for.

    The top one with the bobbin on it is for winding a bobbin. When you press it the bobbin winder spins around. The bottom two are for if you don't want to use the foot pedal. The second of these two, which has a O/I sign on it, makes the machine stop and start. The one with the snail and the rabbit controls the speed.

    Kenmore sewing machine won't sew vinyl

    There is several things you should use when stitching vinyl, treat it the same as leather. The main issue usually is getting the feed dogs to grip and move it through; this is why there are commercial grade machines specifically for leather hides and fur etc, it is tricky to stitch.

    To stitch on a domestic machine, you need a leather needle with a spear tip to cut the leather so it doesn't split. Also, if you can get one, use a roller foot to roll over the fabric, or a teflon foot if you can't find a roller one. Also, use paper clips rather than pins to hold raw edges together (remove as they approach the foot and needle). You may also need to bash seams open after stitching (rubber mallet) and glue down the raw edges, this is how leather hides are stitched professionally. If you have to join more than 2 layers ie crossing seams, you'll probably need a Jeans-a-ma-jig device to help with feeding through the thickness and still getting feed. Like this

    You don't say what it is actually doing, ie stitches not catching, or the feed dogs not moving it through?

    But if it is an entry level machine, it may not have sufficient engine power to pierce the vinyl, especially if the textile is thick. Also, don't try to use a heavier thread than normal weight, if you want the stitching to look heavier, then just run two reels of thread through all the thread guides, tension and the needle eye together. Something like buttonhole twist will be too heavy for the bobbin tension and top tension to handle.

    Hope that this helps you with your project.

    Have you checked to see if the needle is bent. If it is replace the needles. If not you may have to remove the cover hiding the arm, lossen it up and ajust it straight by turning the manual nob slowly.

    The bobbin case keeps sliding and popping out in the middle of sewing something. I'm having to unscrew the bobbin cover plate and put it back in on an average of four times each time I sew.

    This is a real bummer! check to be sure you have inserted the bobbin case fully and correctly. Make sure there is no lint hiding behind the bobbin case.

    I have the 7570 model and just recently got windows vista installed on my computer and now my computer states that there is no communication between the sewing machine and the computer I have an adapter...

    I went to a computer store (Rabbit Computer) that repairs computers and purchased a new cable. They said that some customers had a problem with Vist and the more expensive brand of cable so I bought the cheap one. I had to install drivers on my compter and everything thing worked on my first attempt to download to the machine. The cable was half the price of the one at Best Buy.
