My exwife and I used to do upholstery. I don't know as much as she did about doing upholstery type of work, but I do know you need a machine with a walking foot. Do yours have that? We did custom boat/vehicle seats, and sewed through quite a few layers of material at times, and the machine with the walking foot had no problem. Maybe inquire with an upholsterer with your plans, type of machine, etc, to get advice on what needle size and thread requirements.
