Heavy Duty Sewing Machine FAQ. Q: Is this machine considered mechanical? A: This heavy duty sewing machine is a mechanical sewing machine.Only the foot controller is electronic. Q: Will the machine be able to handle sewing sunbrella (awning material) and vinyl? Is a home sewing machine.
It can sew light to medium weight canvas and "Sunbrella" material with the proper needles and machine settings. Use size 16 or 18 Singer needles (using another brand can cause tension and timing issues) depending on the weight of the fabric. Since the Sunbrella material is normally used as an "Outdoor & Marine Fabric" the issue would be using a treated thread. The coated or treated threads used for outdoor and marine fabrics can leave a residue in the threading track of the machine that will hamper how the machine functions.
For this reason alone, you may want to look at an Industrial type machine. Q: Will this sew plastic vinyl?
