I can buy a used white 1620. Will it be able to sew patches on boy scout uniform pockets? If not, what machine features should I look for? Cheers

    I'm sorry... It's not the thickness, it's the pockets that I'm worried about.

If you are sewing on a pocket do you need a different machine

Hello, Susan -

From my sewing experience, no.

You do not indicate whether you are re-attaching a pocket to a garment . . . a pocket which has been accidentally ripped, whether you are adding a pocket to an already existing garment, or whether you are constructing a garment from scratch and are sewing a pocket into or onto a garment, following the pattern insructions.

You also do not indicate whether it is a patch pocket, a slash pocket, or a side-seam pocket.

Best wishes.

I'm confused about how to sew the pocket to the upper side front confusing, pictures don't help, not clear

Sorry, we can't help since we don't have any pictures or instructions for your pattern. Perhaps searching the internet for now to sew on patch pockets will yield some assistance. Or look for a basic sewing manual at the local library.

Stitches are gathering on backside when sewing on patches

This is caused by a bent needle. Try a different needle that is straight. When they get the slightest bed in them the stitching will end on the back side only
