    there was a thread about this a while ago. I'm gonna be the jerk who says "search."
    but I think the consensus on that thread was you don't need anything industrial, a basic home machine works just as well. I have a Viking 415 that does everything I need it to do.

    ok ill try the search. i remembered a thread about making hats but didnt figure there was discussion of what type of machine. thanks though. i just wasnt sure if a basic machine would go through that cordura stuff. like, if i wanted to make tt pads and things like that.
