I have taken on this project for my friend and am regretting it everytime I look at it. We are sewing curtains out of Sunbrella fabric for her outdoor patio. The problem I am having is that everytime I sew a seam, it puckers. I have done just about everything that I know. I have purchased a rolling foot, teflon foot, adjusted the tension on the machine, made the stiches bigger, tried a whole bunch of different needles, tried tissue paper, parchment paper, silicone spray, and am still having the same problem. I am starting to wonder if this material can be sewn on my machines (Brother ULT and Viking Lily). Does anyone have any suggestions.
