by Jim Grant
176 pages, 180 illustrations, 8-1/2" x 11", softcover.
This is more than an "Idea" book. Here's a thorough step-by-step guide for the power or sailboat owner who wants to make any of the heavy fabric items used aboard boats such as boat covers, sail covers, awnings, dodgers, weather cloths, biminis, and cushion covers, while saving big bucks. Instructions provided are detailed, clear, and easy to follow for anyone comfortable with hand sewing or using a sewing machine.
Some of the subjects included are taking measurements, installing fasteners, zippers, and grommets, and choosing the right material for the jobs. This is a proven guide by a professional sailmaker and canvasworker who specializes in teaching beginners.
While this book uses boat applications to illustrate the procedures, the techniques discussed could easily be adapted to many other applications.
