Sewing Leather Tip
Sewing leather? it could be such a pain! Not every sewing machine can handle it and certainly not every thread. Specialized leather needles are not always helping, either. We recommend using just a new sharp needle (size 16 or 18) and set the stitch length to no more than 6 or 7 stitches per inch. As for the thread - plain old double strength polyester thread (such as Guttermann) should do just fine.
