I use my featherweight for that kind of sewing, but any older machine should work.

Your instructor should have any/all information you need to use vinyl.

I remember reading somewhere that to sew vinyl and keep it from sticking to anything, just put a strip of Scotch tape on it where you're going to sew. I haven't tried it yet but I will if I can ever get my sewing room finished! 😕

Thanks AriannaQuilts ... yes, I totally understand what you have said.
I guess my hesitations about it are totally because I have never tried using it, to prove it works!!
But is the cost really worth it? ....... yes Bernina ... yes big bucks!
(Lucky LavenderBlue with her $!0=$8 score ... I only wish!

Is this the clear iron on vinyl? I bought some at a quilt show but have yet to use it. Would love to know how well it works.
