The bimini went to its new home yesterday afternoon.  Customer was very pleased.    Now I am working full time on getting the matching recliners finished for my in-laws.  Then the 2 restaurants waiting for new booths/chairs.

  I'm going to go out to their house, once he gets the bimini installed, and I'll take pictures then.  Then I'll post them.

I went to see the bimini yesterday.  Didn't take my camera as Jerry had mentioned a problem and I didn't know if it was something that would affect the picture. 

There were a couple pieces of velcro that I needed to add.  They weren't on the originals so I didn't know.  I use the stick on kind.  Got it placed correctly and then pinned it down to make sure that it didn't fall off during transportation back to my shop.  One zipper had come loose (about an inch or so) and one zipper needed to be moved about an inch as it was hard to get it zipped.  There are two zippers, one on each side of the seam and the hardware was kind of butting when everything is zipped over the bows and in place.  No problem, took care of all those items this morning.

The big issue was that there were a few "strings" from my center seam.  I sewed exactly as the original was and it had a few strings as well but they didn't notice.  How do ya'll keep from getting strings.  I'm using fray block on the edges (after trimming).

Thanks!

If you meen threads (strings) they are taken care of by a hot knife instead of scissors when cutting the fabric. It melts the cut so it wont fray.

Yup, that was what I meant.  I'll store that for future reference.

Thanks!
