Depending on the overall thickness of the proposed job, this should be fine provided you bear a few things in mind, and monitor progress.

Use a new size 14 or leather needle, and be prepared to renew needle several times depending on the size of the job........start the sewing by turning the handwheel to create the first stitch and run at low to moderate speed
.....if the machine feels like it is struggling from the outset, do not continue.....
if it runs fine and only starts to labour after a while, the needle will have become blunt...replace it.

For each new seam, start by turning the handwheel manually, just to get things started.....you may also find this helpful at the end of seams for the lock stitch

Also...
The presser foot tension may need to be relaxed a little depending on the overall thickness of the job

My model # is 148.12501 serial# 09200 I need to get a manual . Can i sew leather?


Sears Parts Direct has the manual here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Sewing-Machine-Parts/user-manuals/manual-downloads/Model-14812501/0582/1220000?modelNumber=14812501&diagramPageId=&documentId= . The direct link to the manual is http://c.searspartsdirect.com/mmh/pd_download/lis_pdf/OWNM/L0905327.pdf . If you'd like a pre-printed version of the manual, try here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-kenmore-148-12501.aspx .

According to the manual, you can use this machine to sew some leather items. Use only the straight stitch or simple zigzag stitch. Use a mercanized or silk thread with a size 14 needle. Make sure to use 1/2 pressure on the presser foot.

I hope this helps.

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.

Sewing leather


leather needles, they make little cuts in the leather as opposed to normal needles that try to punch wholes, which does not with such dense material as leather.

Does the Juki DL-555 sew leather?


ordinary drop feeds are not suited for sewing leather,ideally a needle feed or machine with a walking foot mechanism is best suited.if you are stuck with this machine only,there are a couple of things which may help.on some of the juki ddls there is an adjusting screw and locknut on top and in the middle of the arm of the machine .turn needle by hand wheel to bdc and loosen this screw and turn clockwise slowley! this will raise the presser foot very slightly,so when the feed dog is at tdc it can improve the feeding . spear point needles are reccommended also. one other idea,but you need a qualified mechanic to do this is to alter the feed timimg slightly on the eccentric on the top shaft.as the needle is entering the fabric,slow the timing down so the needle enters the leather just as the material starts to move. hope this helps! cheers kev w 07725903110

Broken needle sewing through Corderoy


This machine should be able to sew 9 layers with no real problems but it may be necessary to use a bridge or hump jumper to go over the big hump. Set your stitch length to almost the maximum and sew slowly(one stitch at a time). If it buzzes just turn it off, shorten the stitch length and try again. The above applies if you are using regular thread. If you are using heavy thread, you will need to use a top stitching needle size 18.( It has a larger eye)and adjust your tension as high as it will go to remove the loops on the bottom.
