    The sewing machine needle has to be one for leather fabrics, correct? Or does it depend on the thickness of the leather used?

      Hi there, I would use a leather needle for sure. The size of the leather needle would also need to match the thickness of the leather. For a soft leather I would use a size 80 or 90 leather needle.
