memorycraft 300e fabric weight limits
Hello,
I have an MC300e machine. The manual indicates that it can be used for heavy fabric, with the proper needles of course. Does anyone know if this machine is capable of sewing denim or heavier weight canvas (~15oz)? I would like to use it for embroidering on canvas.

Thank you,

Steve

    Steve, It should be able to stitch 15 oz fabric. I have embroidered on jeans, which I assume is fairly heavy weight and through quilt thickness - material isn't heavy but there is a lot thickness at times. I wouldn't do anything that is to dense as then you can have problems even on something like quilting cotton that is well stabilized.

    YOU DO NEED TO STABILIZE though.

    I've not tried canvas, but I've done some embroidery on the denim and hats. Although mine did not come with the hat hoop, I've been able to do it with the 5 by 8 hoop. My daughters (Kristine and Marge) love their new hats! This machine is a real workhorse for me and has handled everything so far. I'm guessing it can do embroidery on canvas too with the right needle and thread.
