I'm working on a simple running tank for my daughter out of a stretch brushed micropoly I bought from fabric.com. I'm used a 70 ballpoint needle. So far, I have decided my sewing machine, serger and iron all hate this stuff. Are there any tricks that someone knows of? I'm getting there but ripping out a lot of seams too.

Thanks!

You might consider trying Schmetz Microtex needles. I was sewing some wickaway and it was giving me fits until I remembered to use those needles.
