Yes, but it will take a number of practice runs & the thread will show.

You will need:
a piping foot (or a similar styled trim foot)
enough pieces of sequins & scrap fabric in the same thicknesses as the garment you want to put sequins on.

Put the specialty foot on your machine. It will have a grove or funny bump that will guide the trim right to the needle perfectly. Sew samples, adjusting your stitch length, until the needle is going down the center holes in the sequins & not puncturing or splitting them. Yeah, it's a pain, I sew them on by hand.

Thanks, that's what I thought. I have about 65 meters of sequins to sew, so I'll try machine. Wish me luck Smiley
