Question about Brother Sewing Machines
I've been looking too and I found here http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/board.pl?t=18328that you need to put the bar behind the needle threader down. I think they call it a button hole stop? I don't know, but it worked. I didn't even know it existed. But it solved my problem. On my Kenmore it looks like a black lever and you pull it down. It tells the button-holer that you are at the end of the hole and it needs to backup. nifty, kind of.

these are the best setting i have found for sewing through thick materials, specifically leather and vinyl:
top tension- between 8 and 9 bottom tension- between 4 and 5 stitch length between 3 and 4 stitch type: 2
that is just what works best for me, i have a brother xl-2600i
