What kind of sewing machine do I need for leather?

Can you sew leather on an industrial machine?

Yes, it will. But that size needle is pretty thin…. and will only work on SOFT leather products with thicknesses from 1/16″ to 1/8″. One of the biggest problems people have when using a household sewing machine for leather is they think they can sew 1/4″ thick or greater.

What needles to use for leather?

The R point Groz-Beckert needle is a great needle for leather, as long as it is under 4 oz. The R point is considered “sharp” and can punch through materials of all types quite easily. When stitching on thicker pieces of leather, we recommend using a cutting point needle.
