The Business Of Upholstery / Re: how to go about attaining clintel
« on: July 02, 2011, 10:56:04 AM »
  It sounds like you have a decent plan by visiting marinas, car places etc. Face to face is the best way to make acquaintances especially in business. You might offer a referral discount or gift valid for a few months to customers you do pick up. Send them 20 bucks or a dinner gift certificate or something for referring a friend.
  Word of mouth will take awhile but it is the best you can get. Do great work and the rest will follow.

Like Mike said use welting instead of the top stitch. It will lay better and look better. Cut both pieces to pattern.

I don't personally use foam on an outside back unless it has some sort of stitching on it. I do sew the perimeter as it helps keep things flat and in place. Glue might or might not be used depending on size and shape. It really only helps keep the sandwich together while working. Your wrinkles are more likely from the sewing or you haven't put the cover  on yet to stretch it into shape.

General Discussion / Re: How I measure for welt cord cut on the bias.
« on: June 12, 2011, 10:35:56 AM »
Gene,
  I just order enough fabric to accommodate bias welt. 1 1/2 extra for a chair and 3 for a sofa.

SD ya know my dad and I always did the same thing. Get the insides done make the cushion and we could adjust the arms or back ever so slightly to make the cushion fit perfectly. I still do that to this day. It's much easier than adjusting a cushion. Neither of which happen very often.

I just place the over sized fabric on the deck. With a new piece of sharpened chalk run it perpendicular to the deck just touching the IB and IAs add a seam allowance and check it. Most times I will trace both sides and when I trim it I trim half and then fold over so they match. If the chalk lines are way off I will split the difference. This is on a straight front. On a curved front I will do the same thing and then mark the front last with the edge of the chalk add seam allowance and trim and test. It's not hard to keep the chalk straight up and down once you do a few hundred  ;D

No Upholstery shops around? We are pretty easy to deal with us Rag Tackers. If there is ask to buy some from them.

Babycakes,
  Keep going the springs are much more comfortable and supportive. Be sure to use spring twine. I don't think you are. It won't break!
