Question about Sewing Machines
Hi Can I sew plastic (garbage bag thickness)on 25 y.o. janome machine. What needle size & thread length etc? This is an old machine sew I am not concerned about using it on normal fabrics again. This item is for a concert backdrop. The machine is at my daughter;s so I don't no the model.
Plastic is easy to work on. Any needle will work, I'd go with a sharp not ball point. The stitch length should be a bit longer so you won't have the perforated effect and cut through the plastic. A thin size thread will cut the plastic vs a thicker one. Always try a sample first so you can adjust the tension specially if you can adjust it from the bobbin. GL
