Sewing machine is out of sycn


If the needle/hook is out of time, you will probably need to take it for service. There are web sites and videos on the internet that show how to correct timing if you want to try it yourself.

I sew thin leather w/Janome MC4000 using leather needle. Want to try thicker leather but not damage machine. How thick will this machine take?


Be careful sewing thick materials with a domestic machine. Even though a lot of machines are supposedly able to sew thick leather & fabrics, it could damage your machine in the long run. If you value your machine, you might want to find a second machine (used mechanicals, older Singers, etc., probably work better for this purpose) to sew thick fabric. Save your nice primary machine for more conventional uses.

Thread keeps breaking when sewing through thicker materials


When you sew any thick material on any machine the needle cannot form the loop properly as the needle comes up because the material is keep the tread tight to the needle, the only real way round it is to sew slowly.

Sewing thick fabric and machine won't send it through


Sergers are not really meant to sew very thick material. The blades have a maximum amount of range, or thickness that they can reach to cut. If you go outside that range, get ready for a big repair bill! You can break loopers and even the needle plate when you "push" a serger. My advise would be to use you sewing machine for the, "pounding" work. The type of material matters too, A thick Quilt like fabric can be sewn becatuse it's not dense material. A thinner harder denim could max out at 3 layers because of it"s hard finish. If the fabric you're sewing isn't dense like, you could just need new knives.

Problems when sewing over heavy jean hems


Are you using the correct type of needle? have a word with your needle supplier and explain the problem. Different threads and different thickness material need different top and bottom tension adjustments.
Can I suggest sew one thickness material at a time with tension adjustments for that thickness. Then change the tensions and do a batch of thicker material.
