    Sharp, not universal. I usually use a size 14.

    Wouldn't you need a telfon foot to sew over the oilcloth? I always use one and of course a very sharp needle.
    Be kinder than necessary,everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Yes, or a roller foot. Or just a piece of tissue paper, if you can't find your roller foot. *whistles innocently*
