You can totally sew leather on a home sewing machine. There are just a few things to keep in mind and you need the right machine.
Thankfully, there are many home machines capable of sewing leather and suede and many of them, like the leather we use, are recycled or used machines.
Many older machines, especially Singer sewing machines still have a lot of life in them, even if they are 50 or more years old.
Below I describe some of the home sewing machines that I use to sew leather andsuede.
