no, but I would make sure my foot would clear the chenille if you are going to have to pass over it. On some long arms you can raise the foot height. Also, check and see if your machine has a "scoop" foot or something similiar which is made to easier rid over thick seams or plush fabric.

as long as the chenille is not loopy I think you'll be ok
