How To Sew Thick Fabrics With Ease

"Thick fabrics are often a cause of broken needles and thread messes when you first start trying to sew with them. This is because of all the uneven surfaces - the tall climb up to chunky seams then the descent back down again, and balancing on the edge of a bulky hem. All of these positions tip your presser foot, which strains your needle as you sew. By learning how to stabilise your presser foot, you can sew these fabrics with ease. So this tutorial shows you how to do just that. Learn how to balance out your sewing with everything from scraps of cardboard to specialist sewing machine feet and see how they measure up to the job. There's even some advice on what size needle you should be picking for which thick fabrics, and what settings on your sewing machine will make it easier to sew with too."
