Much of the newer furniture today - done in a type of vinyl or leather or even cloth is seamed with
thread (all types of seaming - but various top stitching) that is near a small cord size.

But, as you doing such already know it fails, early in life - like still new! 
And they want it fixed.  Well, the curve needle is very limited, plus taking the upholstery off the piece
to sew can quickly become impractical for thread and machinery (and shop cost) compared to factory
equipment.  Even with the same equipment and thread as factory - cost quickly becomes a factor.

I have often sent the customer back to their point of purchase and order a replacement piece, system,
that will only fix the problem right - and hope it is available.

People ask how long it took me to learn how to do this stuff -- my reaction is "I will let you know", without thinking (sometimes it takes a second or two to understand).

The market today ---- to a significant degree doesn't include old school stuff - a lot of the market
doesn't have the old school stuff nor even seem to like those styles.  Too bad in a certain respect isn't it?  Where will the market gravitate to in another 5 to 10 years or?

Hang in there business friends.!
