I started a purse to give for Mother's day, I was able to apply some naugahyde to the side, but when I tried to sew two pieces together, the sewing machine gets stuck and drags and stretches the fabric. Any suggestions? I am using my old Singer 15-91, and a size 14 needle. I will post a pic next.

I'm new and thought I would share my latest achievement... A client brought me a tricot quilt... Last one I worked on would have been 34+ years ago and it was for me and my husband at our wedding.
