General Discussion / Re: Snap Studs

A few turns with a phillips head after drilling is my mc guyver method . Haven't chipped any gel in years and don't have to look for that special bit . . Just saying

Yeah, I think foam welt expands or contracts a little after you sew it in, causing the waviness with soft fabrics.

I think I answered my own question as I looked at the different types of welt cord on the upholster.com site and found this note for the jute cord and the foam cord .
Foam Flex Welt Cord is also good for outdoors. Again cut the fabric on the bias to prevent wavy cording.
5/32" 500yds.

Jute welt cord is great for sewing outdoor furniture cushions. Wasahble. Cut the fabric on the bias and pull tight while sewing to prevent wavy cording.

1 straight cut
2 on sharp turns
3 foam welt cord
4 waves all over , straight runs and curves
5 welt sewn to plate then boxing sewn on
6 All good with the vinyl cushions I made yesterday for a viking .

Thought it may have to do with the welt cord and the soft hand fabric to be honest .

Thanks

Installed a cover on a toon at a marina the other day . Came with all hardware , had to install some snaps. Studs supplied were the self drilling variety. Worked great and there were a ton left over for my stainless hardware tray .

I am having a issue where the welt I have sewn is coming out all wavy ( see pic ). Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong . Using the same 1/4 welt cord I use on everything else and have never had this issue even using the boardy marine sunbrella . This fabric is very expensive and i'm freaking out !! Pushed it to the side for a couple days and figured I'd ask the masses here . Thanks for looking !

I think the backing is stiff so as not to pull out of the extrusion on the bed rails. It slides in a channel on the rails right ?

I tell all these tele marketers they need to speak to Bob but he's out fishing. Actually there is no bob here ! Usually they call back asking for Bob. They get a " he's on the other line , hold just a minute ' .Sometimes they even call back again . If I was really working hard on something demanding all my concentration and get interrupted I will blow my cork and repeat the scene from the 40 year old virgin .

General Discussion / Re: Sewing Binding, am i missing something?
« on: August 11, 2014, 03:04:27 PM »
I have both like mike but I prefer the right angle binder . I use a 1" binding and binder. I find this one easier around the corners but misses sometimes in the corners. Bought it from keystone and they set it up for my consew before sending it out.
