Here’s another great customer question for Kevin!
I am wanting to purchase a sewing machine and am not sure which would be best. I make some totes, shoulder bags, and smaller leather goods (pocket knife slips and journal covers) using leather that rarely exceeds 4/5 oz. (thus the sewing thickness is usually two layers of 4/5 oz leather). I will probably put only five hours of time on the machine per week.
Do you have a suggested machine that would do the trick?
Thanks so much!
Here’s what Kevin had to say:
For me, it would be either a Cobra Class 20 or a Class 26. The 26 is a a bit more versatile because of the cylinder arm, and if I could have only one machine, that would be the one that I’d have in my shop. The class 20 is a small bit less expensive, but in my opinion the 26 is it!
If you need more info, let me know and I’ll get it to you.
