@MalcolmM All I can say is that I will never touch the seam and have done insert replacements for friends who are well aware the calibration of the seat on the cushion will be altered. I in no way would do any airbag seam sewing.

My mom was a lifelong seamstress and the doll clothes she made were impressive. I would love your serger for some fabric work I do for seniors however it will not be needed in the auto trimming. I think you could get by sewing a couple of 30 oz pieces of vinyl together with that machine but getting ...

@Ironhorse2022 , I am working on a project right now that ended up as a DIY. Boat upholstery can be miserable enough as it is but trying to sew it with a domestic machine will be a nightmare.
