@moose91:  we didn’t use a machine but we hand-stitched about half of our save the dates before deciding to go in a different direction

I didn’t stitch anything ONTO my invites but I did stitch across my invites without thread to make a perferation so that the RSVP card could be pulled off. I didn’t have any trouble in terms of the needle breaking or anything like that. It was pretty easy. The things I’d watch out for are: 

1) Play around with different length stitches. If the stitches are too short the paper may tear really easily. If the stitches are too long, the thread will pull right out. 

2) Maybe hand tie the ends of the thread? 

I’d just do a few test runs to see what works best.
