Sewing on Pleather

kkdesignerdolls's picture

I am sewing on a Necchi Silvia which is old but great! But, when I sew on pleather, the top thread won't pick up the bobbin thread. I have tried leather, jeans, universal needles, changing the pressure of the feeddogs, using a teflon foot, changing the size of the stitch and tension. If I get a stitch or two, that's all. I am using a heavy thread for topstitching. (I am making a purse and sewing through one layer of pleather, one layer of fleece interfacing and a layer of cotton lining. Help!
