Joanne fabrics, Harbor freight has a model for upholstry also. Walmart has them, and independent dealers will have them, such as a singer dealer.

Sewing Machine

Check out http://www.upholster.com and go to the classified section. There is an ad for Bob Kovar there. He sells industrial sewing machines. You need a machine with a walking foot to properly sew upholstery materials. You may be able to find a used one in your local want ads. Also, check with your local upholstery shops, as they may know of any that are available in your area. Good luck.

GOTO EBAY, walmart and joanne do not make a machine thats considered industrial, there stuff will never work good.

I have used heavy duty machines, and then used an old phatt 1950's machine that was ok, but nothing beats a REAL industrial sewing machine. I bought a 4000$ sewing machine used on ebay for 1200$. It improved my seat sewing by at least 70%.

Heres what you need, table and all. Pedal forward sows, backwards cuts, use your knee to lift the quill. Some have auto start and auto end to secure your stiching.

Be sure to get one with a reverse jog so you can reinforce your stitching at the end of the material in critical places. Might not seem important to some but it is a nice feature. I ran a Juki for awhile in a trim shop and they pretty much rock. They are expensive. I also ran an old Singer industrial which ran ok. That was after the Juki and I wouldn't go near a Singer now due to that experience. But it was an old machine. I own a Cutline industrial now and it is a nice machine for the deal I got on it. It was in a factory setting and was used once in a while. Keep looking you'll run across one.

Filky: I just ran into a website today called tuffsew.com. They only sell direct over the internet. They sell home and industrial machines. I can't vouch for the quality, but the prices are very reasonable.
