Saddle stitch/double french seam Leather
I have a straight sewing single needle SINGER industrial sewing machine which I’ve used for most of my upholstery jobs in fabric. I have just been commissioned to do a leather job which requires saddle stitching seams with gusset in some areas and double french seam on the outline borders. This poses a challenge to the capability of my current machine. While shopping around for used machines, I’ve come across a double needle NECCHI ??, DURKOPP ADLER 367-170010 and PFAFF 1245 but the long bed, double needle RELIABLE MSK-8420BL really caught my eye. Apart from the retailers claims and a few web search, I have limited knowledge of the capabilities of these machines.
I’m earnestly seeking advice from experienced hands in upholstering in leather for the most cost effective type of machineappropriate for the job (used vs new, double vs single needle, walking foot??.. ) Time is of essence pls.
