OK I am making a large wide brim hat out of theatrical buckram. It's stiff stuff. I am confused as to what sewing needle type (on a machine) I would use. Especially if I have to go through layers of fabric such as cotton twill and poly satin. I am wondering if I butcher my fabric with a leather needle. I have a decent sewing machine, I have a old kenmore and I just got a singer 401 slant o matic.

I bow to anyones expertise on this.

I usually start with a 14 and move up to a 16 if it doesn't work. I really like denim needles for thick fabrics.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

Thanks! I tried searching it on my own. All I could find was don't use a blunt needle or ball pointed.
