More Information

Sewing a 3/4 “ drapery pleat has been virtually impossible with all but the lightest fabrics until now. We’ve modified the head and introduced direct drive technology and the ability to set the torque and speed required to tack heavy fabrics.

For tacking all types of drapery work, the 8100DT with direct drive technology allows you to set the speed of the machine and the stitch count, offering the whole package. A quieter, precise sewing experience and outstanding build quality.

-The 8100DT includes our custom heavy duty drapery clamp. Through years of experience, our R&D team has created the perfect system for tacking even the heaviest materials up to ¾” thick.
-With a simple press of a button, the 8100DT can be programmed for an 8, 16 or 32 stitch count for a more precise and controlled stitch
-The 8100DT direct drive motor allows you to program the speed of the machine. This eliminates unwanted thread burn and allows for a more precise button sewing experience.
-Includes Uberlight Flex
