We are seriously considering buying an industrial sewing machine and doing some projects ourselves. In researching what to buy we asked some of our fellow boaters and so far the machine of choice is the Sailrite. So I’ve been looking at their website and talking to Mason Sewing Center in Vancouver to ensure we get the best price and product for our needs. Anyway….long story short….I came across this DIY site on the Sailrite website and found it to be most informative! So I am following their blog and hope the information therein will be invaluable for us as we venture forth with making our own boat ‘stuff’ (for lack of a better word!). https://sailrite.wordpress.com/page/6/
