Good point on the newer tech Doyle,
  Automobiles are a very good example. I use to do cars back in the 70s-80s. Now I would be lost.I did a mustang seat repair and was very surprised they were not hog ringed into place. It is a simple example but fitting. Air bags are a whole other story. Don't want to learn them touch them so I'm out of cars.

65, This sample order was for an envelope that would be filled with a piece of foam. Two sided with boxing and zippered top, bottom and boxing filled with down blend mentioned. Kind of like a dacron wrap but with a down blend. Could be used on either a seat cushion or back cushion depending on type of foam used.

Update on my findings.
  I sent RFQs on a drawing of an envelope I have used recently to get  an example price from both Albany and Ronco. My original supplier charged roughly $50.00 for 10-90 blend for this one.
Albany was in at $160.00 for 25-75 blend+ shipping
Ronco was around $85.00 for 10-90 blend plus 35 shipping.
  I will be sticking with Pacific for now.

  Thanks for the recommendations

Borrow a basketball from your local school/kid down the street. wrap it in masking tape and mark the seams. Carefully cut and remove the tape and stick the sections to pieces of brown paper. Add your seam allowance and presto---there is your pattern.

( old shoe making trick,wink)

Now that a great trick.

  Ya know 65, feeling confident in this business is a rarity. When standard furniture comes in we feel perfectly confident in our abilities but the non standard things take us back. Even after many years of it. I remember a big restaurant job I did probably 35 years ago. It was all new and done from blueprints I had to actually buy the prints just to bid the job. I got it and had 30 days to complete for the grand opening. It was many many booths, and cushions for benches, and chair cushions. A big place in a mall back in Syracuse. Malarkeys was the name. I took the drawings to my live on boat and spent the weekend figuring it. I was completely confident all through the process and the build. We completed the project the day before opening and it was an accomplishment I will never forget. We had finished work stored in a garage floor to ceiling LOL.
  I've felt confident since then many times but some jobs still pull my strings until the are done, delivered and used for a few days. It is just the way I am.

  It's good to hear your confidence is building. You are doing good work. You seem to really care and that is a quality that is rare also. Keep it up and you will do well. Before you know it you won't think twice on how YOU want to do each job. That time is close.

That would be great Steve, Something to play with to see how it will work for us. Let me know costs and I'll send you a check.
  Thank you very much.
  Been reading up on this and it seems like it should do what I think it will do. This is great. I'll send my address in a private message Steve.

It would first depend on what the customer wanted. But from the description of the leather, sewing the front corners might work well.

So if anyone see a serger for cheap let me know please? I know nothing about them and don't know how much it would be used so I don't want to spend alot on one. Someone has one sitting and collecting dust in a give away kinda mood. :)

Oh Boy!
  Now I'm going to have to look for a serger. I haven't used one in 30+ years but remember going next door and using the girls there for big pieces of fabric. All these other ideas sound cool also.

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.
