    I have never sewed on paper before but I was looking in the AC Moore ad and they have a paper sewing machine that on sale for under 5 dollars but I don't think they could be much more then that anywhere else. You might also want to check your setting or only use a thicker cardstock.

    I bought one of the little sewing machines from AC Moore - don't waste your money. It's just not worth it, even at $5.
    I agree - I use a slightly longer stitch length than usual. Also, light tension. And go slow!

    The key is longer stitch length and lighter tension. Practice on a scrap piece before you attempt it on your layup. I love the look of stitching on a layup.
