The Sewing Room

Materials can be selected from a wide range of fabrics, artificial and natural leather, or customers can supply their own materials. From the ordered job cards, the fabric or leather is selected and rolled out.

The templates are placed in order to draw around using tailor’s chalk, leaving the pattern, cutting and sticking down the foam if necessary. Sewing this together you can choose from a number of stitch types. Some include top stitch, twin needle or straight. There are also other options such as piping, quilting or fluting.
