I know that furriers use a special machine for the seams. Does anybody know of a site where I can get one? Are they easy to use? How much do they cost? Does anybody know where I could get lessons on how to use such a machine? Any help would be appreciated.

Deepika: I'd LOVE to have an online class on sewing with fur that parallels the Sewing with Leather class.

Not the place for questions. Try the forums.

Using fur is TOTALLY unconscionable.

Check Ebay-Bonis is one brand I can think of. Even vintage machines can be somewhat expensive ~700+. They are still manufactured.

You are smart to do research before acquiring a machine. Are you aware that in order to get the beautiful fur appearance that the fur is cut into strips and then sewn together to create the "fur fabric" to achieve a particular look? The more expensive furs have this method called "let out." So, the furriers use the machine for more than just sewing the seams of the fur together. Also a machine is selected according to the type of fur you will sew- whether you’re sewing light, medium, or heavy furs. If you Google e-bay you’ll see a fur sewing machine available for $7,000. There are also some sites taking you to YouTube demonstrating the use of the machine. Good luck!

The machine is simply called a Fur Machine It sews the seam horizontally, with the needle coming directly towards you. The seam formed is similar to an overcast serger seam but without the cutting actions. One thread, looper, hook and needle. Forms a small tight overedge seam.
