    Hi Dan. Seeing you are in WI, I was wondering where you find your supplies locally, or better yet, if you can find supplies locally. I am having a heck of a time down here near Tomah. Nothing in LaCrosse with good supplies, just Joanns. I try to keep things local and use local vendors. Besides being able touch, hold and see what Im buying. Anything maybe in Stevens Point --- hell even Wausau???

    I have A LOT of beginners supplies and stock to buy.....

    Hi Shine: Sorry, I just saw this today. I like Au-Ve-Co 12134 clips for door panels. Used your tip on the ping pong table for a portable cutting table. Bought a high quality table, and it works great. I wish I would have done that when I first set my shop up.

    Hi Shine: Just saw this. Most pros can do a pretty good estimate just using a tape measure in a few places. For newcomers to this process, make your patterns first, if you need patterns, and then measure how much fabric you need by laying out the pieces on a flat surface. Roll goods like fabric and vinyl are measured in running yards, 36" by 54", and not square yards 36" by 36". The 54" should be up and down in most cases. With vinyl you can take some liberties with how you lay the patterns out, but with cloth fabric, you need to keep all the parts oriented so you keep the nap running the same way on all the parts. Then simply measure how long a piece of fabric you'll need to cut out the pieces you need.

    Dan, check out "The Darnell" in the Lounge. He's posting some illegal crap. None of the mods are on line...

    Here is a picture of what I am wanting the design of my bucket seats to look like:

    No foam I am going to use will be pleated. The only foam I will buying/using is foam for the seat bottom, and sew foam for the pleats I will make.

    Thanks for the advice, the problem I foresaw (and its hard to visualize) was over time the vinyl will stretch out over the channel foam and make indentations in the pleats that will not be symmetrical. Almost like you can see the channel foam "bleeding through the seat."

    PS: I got my sewing machine, getting ready to oil it up and start practicing on some scrap fabric.
