Whether you are an amateur DIY leatherworker or run a small leather crafting workshop, this leather sewing machine is exactly what you need to sew soft to medium leather. This is truly a one-of-a-kind sewing machine made specifically with leatherworkers in mind. The beauty of this leather machine is its compact size and small tabletop. It's ideal for small leather workshops and DIYers who need a space-saving stationary sewing setup.

Leather crafters demand precision and accuracy in their sewing and stitchwork. That's why we designed the Leatherwork with a built-in speed reducer which, combined with our Workhorse® Servo Motor, oversized balance wheel and two-belt drive system, delivers incredible slow speed power and control for beautiful, professional-looking stitches.

The Leatherwork fills a hole in the leather sewing machine market. Most leather sewing machines are industrial size and very expensive. They are intimidating and unattainable for DIYers and those wanting to get into leather crafting. This is where the Leatherwork comes in. Its compact size fits in any room — small workshop, garage, spare bedroom, etc. — and the table is unobtrusive. It's easy to lift the machine out of the tabletop should you want to move your sewing setup to another room or take your sewing machine to a farmers market or convention.

For leather enthusiasts who are currently hand stitching leather and want to expand their skill set and greatly speed up the sewing process, the Leatherwork is the machine for them. Its price point is attractive compared to full-size industrial leather sewing machines. Best of all, it's designed and engineered by Sailrite, a company whose reputation for outstanding machine performance, quality and dependability is uncompromising.

What Can It Sew?

The Leatherwork Sewing Machine was specifically designed with leather crafters in mind. Wallets, straps, bags, belts, lanyards — these are just a few of the things you can sew with the Leatherwork. The machine easily handles leather up to 16 oz. or 1/4 inch thick. But that doesn't mean you're limited to only sewing leather! You can also sew canvas, upholstery, denim and more with a few simple adjustments to the machine.

With a 3/8-inch presser foot lift, you can sew a variety of materials with ease. The walking foot works with the feed dog to pull thick layers of material through the machine at consistent speeds for symmetrical stitching. The walking foot can climb over various material thicknesses without skipping stitches.


The all-metal internal components and cast-iron body are robust and made of high-quality materials. Technology proprietary to Sailrite puts the Leatherwork in a class of its own. The machine is fully assembled, fine-tuned, oiled and tested at our Indiana manufacturing facility. You can be confident in knowing that every Leatherwork machine that leaves our facility has been individually tested and runs perfectly. All you have to do is assemble the table and install the motor and machine, and you are ready to start sewing!
