An industrial machine would help you with heavier fabrics, but they don't sew lighter weight fabrics very well at all, and if you need any kind of decorative stitch, you'd be out of luck. Home sewing machines can sew through a lot. If I were you, the first thing I'd look into would be heavier needles for the machine you have now.

The other thing you could look for is a lighter weight industrial machine that is intended for clothing, like blue jeans. I'd start at an industrial sewing machine store and tell them what you want to sew.
