Topic: Need Help Sewing Thick Fabrics w New Singer Machine  (Read 863 times)

I have a Singer SES2000 Futura machine.

I am having a TERRIBLE time trying to get this machine to sew through fleece. It does just fine on single piece, but not on a double thickness or more. When I try to sew anything as thick as the two pieces together, making a stuffed animal for example, the machine will skip stitches. When I say skip, I mean skip sometimes 3-4 inches in length where it's not making contact with the fabric and putting in a single stitch.

I've looked all over online for help and found none. I've tried to change the stitch length and thickness. I've tried to adjust the tension. I've tried different thread. Nothing seems to be working. This machine sews beautifully the rest of the time.

This is a computerized machine so I cannot sew if the presser foot is not in the down position, etc.

I'd really love some advice. This machine cost over 1500.00 and I feel like I could make these basic projects, plush animals, etc much more easily with my old 60.00 Brother machine.

I pulled up this page in a Yahoo search so that you can see the specs on this particular machine.


Thanks for your help. Huh

Well, I have a cheapy brother. The first time I was working with fleece, it skipped a lot of stitches. I changed to a larger needle and sewed very slowly and it seemed to do fine.
