Great machines and sailrite have wonderful support. Been sewing my own stuff for years. One of the nice things is the "how to's"' on youtube. Sailrite definetly lead you by the hand etc when you start.

Sailrite.com has many fabric choices, all with general specifications for wear and UV resistance, and reasonable prices.
Our choice is here: https://www.sailrite.com/Geobella-Mo...digo-54-Fabric
The Warranty includes "excessive fading".

One trick with the Olefin fabrics is to use a hot knife rather than scissors. Short learning curve, then quick and accurate cuts with no ravelling, every time.

Right you are. Now we don't hesitate to bring new acquaintances to have a look. I am in the midst now of refinishing the woodwork in the aft cabin, forecabin is done, main saloon will get some touch up next. Without doing the upholstery this year I wouldn't have seen these items rise to the top of the to-do list this year. Janet is also an avid quilter, so the beds in the aft cabin and the V berth each have great-looking quilts to show off.

Martin:
We have watched several of the Sailrite vids, and have called the Sailrite guy. Seems like you talk with the owner of the site when you call. Very personal service and very responsive to questions with sound advice.
