Usually at the patterning stage I put hash marks ( every 2” - 3” or so) to mark the cuts of little V’s into the seam allowance of both pieces, that way you can keep things lined up quite a distance away. I’m with you on the relentless pursuit of perfection and drive myself a tad crazy chasing it to ...

I have a 1541 using v92 thread with a #18 needle so you should be fine there. If you just going through a single layer it would be to light for that machine like Lee suggested. For the bottom bobbin tension shoot for what is shown in the video…. Once you the bottom close you can pretty much ignore i...

Absolutely, the water droplets can make there way down the hose and not play nice with the glue or fabric.

Nice, did you have to sew the seat base to the back or is it 2 pieces?

When I’m doing inserts I sometimes staple the 2 pieces together which makes sewing it up real easy. Like John says… do some practice pieces, I’ve learned to sew a little shy of the seam allowance helps to keep the corners neat if you are going to topstitch the insert.

I’d try putting some baby powder on the vinyl to reduce the friction or….. change to a single fold binder. I use a Sailrite Swingaway singlefold with great results

I will run a 138 on top and a 92 in the bottom sometimes when I’m topstitching smaller projects, as long as the stitches are linking up in the middle of the fabric I don’t see a problem.

Looks like it could be UHMW or HDPE, both very popular plastics in the industrial world. A google search should come up with vendors in your area

I do my fair share of these and won’t give a price until I’m positive it was assembled conventionally and won’t add hours to the job because someone built it that doesn’t know how.
