I see an upturn in business. September was a dead month but it always is. October has picked up and this week it has started to soar. I don't know if it will continue so I am leery of putting on help as of yet. I have been working on a large job that looks like a go but until I see a deposit and a PO I do nothing. I know we cannot compete with factory work. I never wanted to and never will. They are a breed of their own.

I use fiber welt cord in everything sometimes a rare occasion I will use the plastic stuff in a boat. Not in vinyl but in fabric in a boat so it won't mold.

Sofa,
  I'd like to know how you get 1.75% from square. All my sales are at the shop or with a card reader. Let me know how you get this. The only way I see to get a lower rate is doing 25000.00 + per month. Maybe your busier than I thought :) I wouldn't mind waiting an extra day.

  I use square also, 2.75% money next day. The normal merchant accounts are a nightmare. I had one once and the "other" fees are faminonal. Statement fees, transactions fees, access fees, and more. All add up to a bookkeeping nightmare. Square is so simple it is worth the fees. I has a comparison done a couple years ago and the guy was from a processing company. He said until I get to 5k a month then the fees were going to be cheaper using square. I am past that and I still won't switch. I hated all the other charges they had.
  Your fees might be different being online. That is like non swipe (keyed in) I believe.
  It has become a cc world. People like the miles it pays for their vacation travel for some of them.

These should get you some options to work with other than Photobucket as they have become pretty bad.

I would use the 2" sew it 2" down from the top edge of the backs and 2" in from the sides so it won't show. Self stick on the walls with a few staples to last. The self stick is pretty strong if its good velcro but kids can be kids.

Really the only thing you can do if you cat replace is to stuff foam in the coils till it feels like the rest. Or try to exchange with another one in an area that doesn't matter as much.

Steve these tension springs are used on the ends of a spring edge to keep the burlap under tension. The end section of a sprung edge looses a lot of tension so these are added to take up the difference. A spring edge, if your not familiar is a soft edge. Not hard.

General Discussion / Re: Anyone here work on Pfaff/have parts?
« on: October 24, 2018, 08:29:41 PM »
Pfaff machines, especially the old ones are in my opinion the best machines out there. They sew forever if taken care of. These new machines are OK once you get them setup properly but they are no comparison to the older Pfaffs. I do remember taking mine in once every couple years to have him set the timing. But that was the extent of maintenance for 30+ years. Clean and oiled is all we did.

The Business Of Upholstery / weird bug here.
« on: October 24, 2018, 05:31:49 PM »
weird bug here. I'm sure Im not the only one but when I post or reply and then try to post or reply again to another subject it wont allow it. I think it something like you cant post another one so quickly. I had to move on and come back to post a reply. Not very friendly software as I have said before.

65 maybe it is just the model 145. It really was so hard it would have bruised a knee if it was used for any amount of time. I sewed on that machine for 30 years before using anything other than that. When I could use a knee lifter I felt like it was really the cats ass. I love them now.
