Some crafts stores sell Leather Needles - they have a wooden handle and are large....

Why does velcro keep jamming in my sewing machine?
Two things that come to mind is; 1) Don't use the kind with glue on it. 2) Using a leather needle makes it much easier. (11/17/2006)

Oh My I never heard of a leather needle. I guess it's the glue. Thanks so much. (11/17/2006)
You may also be able to adjust the plate or pressure foot a bit to help. (11/17/2006)
I'll try to do it today. Thanks (11/18/2006)
I agree with Ole Lulu, don't use the velcro with adhesive on it. Make sure you use at least a 90 or 100 needle. Hint; rub your needle with bee's wax each time you go to sew velcro . bjptl (11/19/2006)
