Solent's new Leisure Pro machines are what you have been asking us for - a portable sewing machine but with plenty of space under the arm for bulkier sails and covers and the capabilities of an industrial machine.
The Leisure Pro has a big 125mm (8.5”) underarm space – that’s 50mm (2”) more than the others you will see which is important when working on large, bulky projects.
The walking foot makes these heavy duty machines ideal for working on all you home / garden / marine projects whether it's sail cloth, acrylic, canvas, soft furnishing & upholstery fabrics, leather, PVC or many other difficult-to-sew materials.
If you have ever tried sewing a sail, cover, webbing strap, curtain header tape or other thick or bulky item, you will know that a standard home sewing machine or even an industrial machine without the walking foot just won’t feed it and the frustration of broken needles or start-stop sewing can put you right off completing the project or trying something else.
Solent’s long experience in the marine and technical textiles industries, supplying machines around the world for sail & cover makers, upholsterers and many others mean that we have the knowledge and understanding to make a machine that can power through thick materials effortlessly. The machine is assembled in the Solent UK factory to ensure the machine is tough enough for the challenges you will put it through.
