1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / help with sewing leather PLEASE!? D: on: July 01, 2011 10:28:49 AM
well, i want to sew leather (thin leather) on my machine, and i mean.. i tried playing with the tension, but either the thread gets out of the needle, or it just doesn't sew (it just makes holes in my fabric) i'm using a scrap of it obviously until i can figure it out and sew the real deal. HELP?

IS it the tension? i really want to get this project done today):

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / kenmores?/// newbie questions EDIT!! on: May 22, 2009 09:33:28 AM
ok, well I'm in the market for a sewing machine.. uhh i guess you could say I'm a beginner, but I'm taking sewing lessons at school (:

i was thinking a Kenmore could be what I'm looking for, so i have some questions.

for example, is sears an ok place to buy sewing machines? i was first thinking wall-mart, but i hear they aren't any good  Sad

and also, i would be making probably things along the lines of bags, hats, pillows, maybe curtains, most certainly clothing : skirts, shirts, pants, maybe jackets
once i get better at sewing of course (:
since i want to be able to make costumes (:

haha, thank you for the help!  Kiss
oh and *FIRST post everrrr!*


never mind, what about kenmores in general, i was thinking maybe the kenmore 18221?
