Singer Heavy Duty Sewing Belt Loop on Jeans, Leg Hem and 4 Layers of Leather

Note! I just noticed I said I used a stitch length of 2.5 on the hem. I actually used 3.5. Sorry for the mistake! Click Show More to view the rest of my notes!

This video was created as a part of a long discussion on an online forum. I decided to make it public because I thought it might be useful in part to those of you that are considering this machine.

The more I use this machine the more I respect it. One the hardest things for a domestic machine to sew is 14 oz denim belt loops. After testing numerous machines (including the Janome HD1000) and seeing them all fail at this task to one degree or another, I was surprised how easily this machine handle it. It can handle the task for sewing a complete pair of 100% cotton 14 oz denim jeans without any problem at all. Add in a bit of stretch as seen in most jeans today then it will be that much easier. 

I used Tex 30 weight thread in this demo, which isn't what I recommend using on belt loops. A Tex 50 weight thread would be better suited for belt loops on denim jeans.

I also show it sewing a leg hem; then through 4 layers of leather using the size 16 denim needle.

I've been asked many times if this machine would be a good choice for starting a sewing business. In the end this is still a domestic sewing machine. They are NOT designed for daily full-time use. However, because the cost is so low on this machine one could start their business with a couple of them and upgrade to an industrial or a semi-pro sewing machine like the Brother PQ1500S after getting their business started. Industrial machines are great. However, they are designed to do one stitch and they do take up a bit more space than a tabletop machine does. In the end all of these factors must be considered.
