  1. Resubmitting of lost pictures Hi fellow builders, as some of the pics went lost some time ago I have resubmitted these, beginning with # 32 post on page 3 Nils Hi fellow builders, in Need for sewed sails, I dared to do self Trials with my wifes sewing machine some months ago. If there is interest in anyone trying likewise, pls. dont hesitate to comunicate your queries here. Also feel free to share your own experience.... I use thin fine weaved Cotton Cloth, use 100% Polyester sewing thread, medium machine needle, textile glue for Fixing, some ordinary paper for Patterns and a soft pencil for drawing the contours from the templates onto the Cloth. The Cloth is only slightly wettend with laundry starch spray and ironed dry . The soft pencil lines are easy to follow during Transit into the sewing machine. There is no Need for prefixing sewing needles along the seams. The ultimate kick I found was to place a 0,5mm stainles steel wire in spring Quality into the lower (bottom) Portion of the bolt-rope that encloses the sail. Braced to the wind, once mounted you get sails shaped as if the tradewind is just providing Swift sailing Please follow the (I trust) self explaining Pictures, I added some coments, and a Little Hand scetch for Illustration. It does not Claim to be perfect, but the anxiety for the sewing machine is overcome, improvements are welcome, but last not least the "sewing boat" has been pushed out.... Part 1 sew straight seams horizontal, vertical follow the soft pencillines on the Cotton cloth trimm off the edge fringes after doing so, then follow my handscetch at the end of this part 1 spring wire (stainless st)and hollow weaved thicker Polyester tread sorry, dont know the english Nomination for this seam making device debur (important !! slightly round)wire edge and push gently though the weaved thread Surplus wire endings shall be made to small Loops for the the sail bottom bolt-rope rings stay sail pattern after many Trials,.... seem to work now... Comes out of the machine quite clean and neat now should be self explaining... come on pls.get out your german/ engl. dictionary. Of course I shall be happy if I can help.... Part 2 to follow
