Might I be so bold as to disagree with Allmakes.
Why would a manufacturer build different models of industrial. They are designed for differnt jobs. The 8300 is a high speed garment machine, the 1541 is a compund feed upholstery machine. The motor is the same HP and does not affect the ability to sew heavy. The garment machine will sew garment weight leather just fine but you will have problems getting the fabric to feed properly particularly over seams. The other issure you may find with a garment machine is it's ability to handle heavier threads. I suggest that the 1541 would be a better choice for making bags and purses.

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.

The thread bunches under fabric when sewing on leather


WHEN YOU FIRST THREAD LEAVE THE FOOT UP AND PAY ATTENTION IF YOU ARE GETTING A SNAG WHILE YOU ARE THREADING. IF YOU ARE THEN FIND OUT WHERE THE SNAG IS AND CORRECT IT. NOW, LOWER THE UPPER FOOT PRESSURE. THIS MUST BE LOWER BECAUSE THE FABRIC IS SO MUCH MORE THICK. IF IT IS STILL A PROBLEM TAKE NOTICE IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM OR ON TOP. MORE ON TOP THEN LOWER TENSION. IF THE BUNCH IS ON BOTTOM THEN TIGHTEN THE TOP. START YOUR TENSION ON TOP WITH THREE. THE BOTTOM NEEDS TO BE CHECKED FOR PROPER TENSION. THE BOBBIN SHOULD JUST HANG FROM YOUR FINGER. IF YOU BOB YOUR FINGER IT SHOULD BEGIN TO EXTEND JUST A SMALL AMOUNT. JUST REMEMBER THE THREAD IS THICKER AND MUST BE ADJUSTED BECAUSE OF THIS.

I need a telephone number to speak to someone at giani bernini handbag company right away..my expensive handbag's leather straps are falling apart and its not even 1year old..I believe you stand behind...


It looks like maybe the store you got it from may be the only avenue you have. there are sold in macy's store and a few other high end stores. I would call your local macy's and ask about the warranty on the giani bernini handbags and then when they tell you the warranty then I would tell them you have a defective one and wanted to know if they will honor it.

hope this helps a little

Model # 64 60 viking sewing machine looking for manual for sewing leather or canvas which cam to use in it


As to your question about leather, the 6460 has a special stitch for sewing leather. Select Colormatic cam C and install in the cam hole at the back of the machine. To remove/add a cam turn the upper left hand dial on the front of the machine to the small dot. This disengages the cam. Gently remove the cam by pulling straight out from the back of the machine. Install cam C straight in, ever so slightly twisting it back and forth into the hole to find the sweet spot. You'll hear a click when it's all the way in.

To use Viking's leather stitch, turn the upper left dial to the color yellow. (Note: The slash line on the upper left dial is a stop. You can't turn past that point. Go in the other direction to get to the icon or color you want.) Turn the upper right and bottom right dial to yellow also. The upper left dial is what selects the particular stitch on the cam, the leather stitch in this case. The upper right dial selects stitch length, and the lower right dial selects stitch width. You can move the right dials within the color range. Experiment on a scrap of cloth to get the stitch size the way you want it. The leather stitch looks like a straight stitch with a block style edging to the right of the straight stitch. This is supposed to give a stronger stitch to the leather rather than a straight stitch by itself.
If you don't have the manual for your machine: Select which of the eight cams you want to use. All the cams are removed/installed by turning the upper left dial on machine front to the small dot. At the rear of the machine, pull/insert cam straight in or out and twist slightly as you push in or remove to find the sweet spot. Move the dial away from the small dot to lock the cam in.
Turn upper left dial to stitch type you want and match the other dials to that same color. Upper right controls stitch length, lower right controls width. Bobbin tension is controlled by the dial at front left of the machine, above the needle.
Cams A-C are the workhorse cams and the rest are embroidery stitches.Straight stitch, button and stitched zig-zag will work on any cam. These stitches do not rely on matching a color code. To use those three: To select straight stitch, on the upper left dial, choose the icon that looks like a buttonhole with a zig that trails off to the right. Select stitch length on upper right dial and turn the lower right dial to zero, going by number rather than color.
To select stitched zig zag, turn upper left dial to the broken zig zag icon (to the right of the straight stitch icon). Select stitch length and width.
To move the needle to the side for buttonhole stitching or other times when you want the needle off center, turn the upper left dial to the button icon. If stitching a button hole, set stitch length to zero and lower right dial to desired stitch width. Push in the small white button that's beneath the lower right dial in order to prevent the feed dogs from moving the fabric forward. Pushing that button in is also handy for putting cloth under the foot before sewing as it prevents snagging and is used for tacking.

The ankle on my machine has unfortunately fallen off during a move, and I can't for the life of me get the internet to help me find a new one. HELP.


I am not too sure of what you mean by the ankle, do you mean the part that holds the foot on? That is called a presser foot holder, that only screws on. You can call Brother at 1-877-276-8437 and order from them or go to www.sewingpartsonline.com and order that part plus 10 attachments for $24.50 that is a pretty good deal actually, because yours didn't come with many extra feet. If, you decide to do that search for "presser foot holder" and the click Brother, but you have a low shank and Singer will also work. Good luck

Hi, im from australia and have recently purchased two second hand toyota ad 320 sewing machines. im having trouble with stitching. when i try to sew leather, the string some how gets all gathered up...


When sewing leather you need a leather needle and if possible a walking foot or roller foot. If the thread you are using is too thick it will not pick up from the bobbin. A strong polyester with cotton core thread should stop this.

Can't get a neat straight and stretch stitch underneath


Sounds like a bottom tension problem, to be sure I would have to have a look, I would suggest you have it looked at. Not sure about the materials you are sewing and have serious doubts as to whether the machine you are using is up for the job and will give you a satisfactory finish. It is possible a "walking foot" machine is what you need.
