I have a question to go along with the carpet tutorial.

My rod has some inexpensive carpet that I put in it with the idea that it would ultimately be replaced with something better.

Now that I have my own sewing machine I may as well practice putting some binding on it.

The carpet has a rubber like backing, not very heavy but it has a 'traction feel' is the best I can describe it. Now, will I have to use some kind of lubricant on the surface or the thread???

There is no doubt that the machine will sew it without even slowing down, I just am curious. The stuff cut pretty easily with a heavy scissors so I would think I could just plow into it.

Hot dog, my welting foot for windlace is on the way I should have it Friday.

Thanks for the help.
