Yes, you can sew deniim with the Singer Confidence basic and it is easy to use. Below are helpful tips for sewing denim.
Please follow these instructions for sewing denim or any other type of heavy weight fabric. These tips apply to all types of sewing machines.
To sew denim and other heavy fabrics, we recommend that you use a denim style 2026 needle for denim or a size 16 or 18 needle for heavier weight fabrics. You will need to set the machine for a straight stitch with the length regulated between 3 and 4. You will also get better results if you use the metal all-purpose foot that was originally attached to the shank when you took the machine out of the box.
Sew at a controlled moderate speed when sewing over multiple layers of seams.
