The needle was fine. I went to Walmart and got a denim needle just for this. The machine punched through the denim on the downstroke and then bogged down when trying to thread back through. Needs more power.
Walmart also carries cotton-wrapped poly extra high strength thread which is just the right color.
I have a couple days off...
