Making a boat cover
by: Brenda Cantrell

Thank you for the advice. My son bought a 1948 Singer to use. The man who owned it made leather pieces for bikers. Do you ever teach anyone to do this in exchange for their working for you?

No, I haven't ever done that. The time spent on teaching is so intense and distracting that unless it's done with a long term solution in mind, it just isn't worth it. If you get serious about learning this, I would recommend one of the schools in the US. Especially Hood canvas training school in the North East. He is a remarkable fabricator.
