No reason not to do them in Vinyl. I'm pretty sure they will be fine when they recover. It will stretch in use but as long as it returns your good.

I think when it's all said and done FB will be spanked and let go. There will be changes made to privacy things in all online systems. FB is not the only system at fault here. Just the example.

Sounds like the vinyl will recover itself. Like Kodydog said they shouldn't be stood on but sometimes it is necessary. Look at them tomorrow and see if they are recovered. If not then the vinyl is too loose or the foam is no good.

The hot compress probably helped also. It may have been the start of a sty. I get them from time to time.

By drop in do you mean they sit inside a frame? If so make sure you have ample room for the added thickness of the leather. I wouldn't worry about the grain although when you say corrected leather it makes me wonder if this is embossed into the leather. If so and noticeable it may matter. But with leather you have to use what you can. And on a tight seat you can basically use most of the hide.
You will like working with leather. Good leather is really nice to work with. Cheap over processed stuff is a challenge at times.

I don't think we have a way as of yet either. My state Florida has legalized medical use. I don't fully understand the whole thing per legalities. I'm old school and just smoked it when i was younger.

I've looked into Ronco. I would like to find someone on the east side of the country. But thanks

I posted this yesterday and I guess it was one that didn't make it. Anyway..
  Does anyone have a recommendation on down blend filled envelopes and cushion cores on the east side of the country? I stopped making thee in house and want to fins a better source that Pacific. The quality of the products are not the best there. I know of another one in California but that seems like a long turnaround and a large shipping bill.
  Thanks

Unless you can sharpen the cutter buy a new one.

Yes a few years notice is way beyond fair on your part. What is he offering in return for the NCA? There has to be something for you in there. Or don't sign it. What can or will he do if you don't? Sounds like you can move on anyway. From an employers view if I wanted to have an employee sign one I would expect there was something for them in it. Like the job, compensation, something. And this would probably be at the hiring point not the leaving time.

Gene,
  My dad and I once did a sofa out of what was called at the time double knit. You might consider it the pre-spandex. It stretched like a piece of elastic. I remember my father doing the cushions three or four times and they ended up tiny until the filling was added. It upholstered nice on the piece it hugged the framework like spandex on a body. It was a challenge and I've never seen it again. I'm sure it was some C.O.M.

Some of the newer pieces, mostly motion furniture has become very pattern oriented. And sewing them together is a large challenge. Many pictures while taking them apart. My last seamstress was from NC and did many years of factory sewing. She said it was handed to her all in order and all pinned to where to sew first. So the cutting room did all the figuring out for her and that was probably all done by the CAD room before cutting got it and the cutting was done on the computer so it is not as hard on them as it is on us. We are the machines at the reupholstery step. Not easy but still doable with patients and pics. Thank god for the phones we have now. Imagine taking all these pictures and getting them developed. Be a fortune.
