What sewing machines are best for sewing fleece or other thick/heavy fabrics?

I'd like to make some fleece clothing for this winter since it's already cold. I don't want to buy a machine and then just have it break down on me when I want to sew thick fabrics. Thanks!

i think the main thing is to have the correct needle (a thicker one) and make sure you have a sewing machine with a good choice of tension settings for the needle and thread. i dont really know any specific machines which are good for this though.

Thanks I'll make sure to get the right needle when the time comes. I just don't want the issue to come up when I need to sew thick fabrics because I have heard of machines struggling with the task. I have heard that Janome sewing machines are good for this purpose.

oh yes! i have heard that to! my college use only those machines as we regularly sew with the strangest materials! lol they are meant to be very hardwearing.
