Question about Singer Sewing Machines
Singer 99 heavy thread not picking up. When using normal polyester thread the machine works perfectly. But I got it to sew leather, and when I put stronger slightly thicker thread in the machine will only reliability sew at full speed, which is no use as I need to be precise and sew round corners etc. If I try and sew slowly the mechanism around the bobbin isn't catching the thread on the needle. I've tried with and without material and the feed is..... Unreliable. Change back to polyester thread, perfect again. I've tried both heavy polyester thread and my usual hypron 17lb fishing line that I sew with on my old hand cranked Chinese machine. Any help would be much appreciated Thanks
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.
