Read all the posts I started in the past 10 days here in the Interior Forum ... and those by Dusty82 ... there are 2 books mentioned that are really worth having and, since I just purchased an industrial walking foot machine last week, I've been asking all the questions a beginner would ask.

Top stitching is when you sew a visible thread-line to one side of a seam ... french stitching is when you sew a visible thread-line on both sides of a seam.

You need an industrial machine. I started with an old Singer workhorse (see here) and modified it to the max only to learn that it takes the right tools for the right job and in order to sew heavy leather like I'm doing, I needed an industrial walking foot machine. I found what I believe is a great machine at an unbelievable price that included everything I needed to get started -- (see details and link to buy here).
