Default Re: Anyone interested in a video on how to make your own seat covers and interior pan

I purchased my Consew 206 walking foot machine from a furniture company that sold out. It was patterned on a Singer design machine made long ago. Japanese units are good quality. I swapped the clutch motor with a late model electronic motor so I could slow it down. The learning curve was too frantic with a clutch motor. This type of machine has reverse to lock stitches and it will punch through multiple layers of vinyl or thick leather with no problem. I have the piping feet so that I can pipe all the wear edges where appropriate. The light duty machines would be breaking needles on what a walking foot machine will sew.
