uggg...I am so mad at this sewing machine, it is minutes from being tossed out the window.
o.k. here is the story:
For my birthday this year my mom surprised me by getting this sewing machine, the Janome Memory Craft 4900. I was using her old one, which worked perfectly up to this point, but now she wants it back. The problem is that I sew a lot of very thick things just as multiple layers of vinyl and felt and I don't think the Janome can handle it. I sew with the Janome and it seems like the part that houses the needle is pushing down so hard the vinyl/ felt I am working with that it wont feed threw the machine, it just stops and sews the same spot till the material rips. I have to sit there and force the material threw with my hands which makes the stitches look really bad. I don't know if there is some setting I can use or foot attachment I can buy to fix this problem. I REALLY need to be able to sew thick things and the salemans at the place my mom got it from swears that this sewing machine is powerfull enough to do it.
Please please help.

here are some of the specs of the machine from Janom's website
