    Anyone know how this performs for leather purses? I am new to leatherworking and plan to make purses. Found this used for $1000. Hoping a good way to get started!

    Beautiful!!! Where did you get this pattern? I am new to leather making and that looks like something I would like to give a try!

    Did you get this machine? I just discovered it and am also looking for a machine that is not more than I need to sew leather purses. Just trying to learn from your experiences since your post! Thanks!

    R8R I like that you say go with CB 3200 instead of fabricator. Now my concern is that it sews only 1/2" thickness, so I'm leaning toward the 3500 or 4500. I am going to sew purses, do you know if these will handle light leather and/or leather with cotton fabric. I think I saw that they do not work well on light leather? Or maybe my Viking Topaz 50 will handle the light stuff? Thanks in advance!

    Oh thank you! That is what I was wondering....if it would really go through the leather like I need it to. Greatly appreciate your input!!

    Has anyone ever heard of the Sailrite Fabricator? It sounds like it is comparable to the CB3200. I am wondering which would be better or if there is a different machine. I want to start using leather to make purses and messenger bags. Would like to get right machine first time! Thanks!!
