If you don't want to tighten the tensions on the machine try adding another thickness of fabric on the seam. It will tighten the stitch. You should use the correct color anyway. Whit is like a bright light against blue.

I use the edge roll available from my supplier. It is pretty firm edge roll with a white fabric wrap. It comes in many sized from like 1/2" to 2". Works well enough. The old stuff is no longer available. The paper filled doesn't hold up well it breaks.
On arms I use 1/2" welt cord and that just softens the edges a little.

The Business Of Upholstery / Re: Medical Insurance.
« on: November 15, 2017, 08:40:02 PM »
I have heard about these Dr. run groups where adults pay like $50.00 a month and can see their Dr. anytime they need to. Children I believe are less expensive than that. The Dr.'s can and will do most things except like major medical issues. Cancer treatments etc. But most all general visits are included. This is where we need to get and allow the Dr.'s and patients to be in charge of the care we receive. No the insurance companies and Drug companies. I forget the name of the Dr. that started this and in what states it is now but someone of you may have heard about this also and can shed more light. My memory isn't as good as it use to be. But this is a very interesting concept.

Velvet will shade based on the direction of the nap. If you RR it one place rr it everywhere. Don't mix it up. I know you have decided on doing this and that is all well and good. It is your business. But if this is a true Velvet the cushion will be walking in response to the direction of the nap. Good luck. If the piece isn't used much it won't really matter. But anyway run it all in the same direction.

Steve I think your right in that we know it is not the best idea to do what we are doing just before we have an accident. I guess we should listen to our inner selves more. An occasional small accident does make you more aware once again. Keeping that "fear" is the trick.

I once stapled web of my hand to a chair. I was alone, and could just stretch to reach the diagonals to pull the staple out and free my hand. It hurt like hell and lasted a long time from stretching the skin to reach the pliers.

Did you let the customer sit on this firm foam. My experience is, when the customer says they want their seat to be very firm and then that is what you give them, they complain it is too hard.

There are commercial enzymes that literally eat the pee and gets rid of the odor. Google it. I have some at the shop but never really followed the directions so it didn't totally work.

I could only post once. I get the error of I just posted in the last few seconds or something like that, I have gotten this error all along sometimes even when I only try to post once. This forum sw is buggy. I also have posed several times over the years and the post never shows up. Just a FYI Admin.
