I am wanting to start doing some various projects that would require the beefier sewing machines(Pfaff, Consew, and/or Thor) such as upholstery cushions(with welts) and leather bags. I have sewing machine experience, and have run some test pieces(veg-tan) through the THOR after @talkers and I went to Sunny for training and a machine overview earlier this year.
My biggest questions relate most to knowing what machine to use, and when. The THOR will be overkill for all but a few hefty layers, but I imagine I’ll still have to utilize it at times if I’m sewing through several layers on a leather bag. Is the Consew capable of doing welting? Can it also do it with thinner upholstery leather?
If anyone is available, I’d be happy to bring some of the material I have in mind to DMS.
