Sewing Velcro

What is the best way to sew velcro? I'm trying to sew velcro on neoprene and it keeps clogging up on the needle.

Thanks,
Bryan from Los Angeles

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

They sell the kind of Velcro that you sew on. It doesn't have any adhesive on it. If you use the kind with sticky on it you will jam up your 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 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)
