help with bear rug

Submitted by jh on 2/1/06 at 8:41 PM. ( )

I am sewing a bear rug on a sewing machine. I'm using size 22 needles and upholstery thread 100 percent nylon. The thread keeps breaking and shredding. Could it be that the hide isn't thin enough for the thread to go through easily?

Make sure your machine is properly threaded and adjust your tensioner.
Is the machine a heavy duty type?
