That's a good tip ... thanks.
I bought a roller foot today, hoping it'll help increase my stitch size and add consistency to sewing leather. I haven't tried it yet, but it's got to be better than the welt foot. We'll see.
I also found some black "Jean Thread" ... it sure looks thicker. I'll be trying that on my french seams.
I have 3 boots I want to make this weekend; shifter, hand brake and foot brake. These ought to be nice and easy projects ... and a great test for the roller foot, the French seams and the Jean thread.
