Thanks. I am checking out the link above. We don't have the restaurant listed, but we have a new Core Eatery, that's where I noticed the newest pattern. There's so many synthetics out there -something new everyday!

Thanks to all!

 I was wondering what the fabric is that I have noticed on new restaraunt booths. It's like a vinyl but softer and comes in great patterns and textures. I'm not covering booths but would like to use it for another project. Thanks in advance for your input!

Thanks for this information. I picked up some larger needles today and now I will give that a try as I have more work and lots of that welt to use. Many thanks for the support. Always helpful.

Well, after walking away for a bit, I had an epiphany! Amazing, I know. I had just purchased some welting cord from a lady moving out of town and it was slightly stiffer than I normally use. Low and behold, I tried the duck cloth WITHOUT the welting cord (I had been working on welting) and no issue. Tried the welting....frayed and broke every time. Welting cord is the problem.  Now, I don't know what I'm gonna do with all that welting cord!

Thanks for all your thoughts. Clearing the mind and walking away is very helpful to think it through.

I finally got in touch with the guy that works on the machine. I'm gonna pick up a heavier needle from him. He thinks the thread is being split by some action in the take up.

And yes, it is two different fabrics. The duck which is softer and the heavier fabric which is more dense and a tighter weave.

It's just very odd. Thanks for your input. I will see if the heavier needle works.

I am sewing some 10 oz duck cloth and my thread keeps fraying and breaking. If I sew heavier fabric, no problem at all. Checked threading, tension, needle and thread...all seems fine. My repair guy is not responding, so I'm looking for some wisdom so I can finish my project. Thanks!

How to Use This Forum / Looking for 1950s Vinyl Supplier
« on: June 21, 2015, 08:03:08 PM »
I have been looking for a vinyl supplier that carries a very thin smooth vinyl for some Lee Woodward dinette chairs. Every thing I find is too thick or textured. Suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks.
