These are excellent suggestions! I have never thought to manually adjust the tension on my machine, though if do have settings for thicker fabrics. I did know about using larger needles, and many times I have manually turned the wheel to get over some really thick areas, like attaching straps or where a trim band may add to thickness. I always thought I was cheating, but it got the job done, especially when you have a home sewing machine and not a heavy duty one that may handle leathers or canvas fabrics routinely. Thanks for these great tips! So practical!
