UPHOLSTERY BASICS-Some Tips on 'How To'...'Piping' or 'Welting'- TUTORIAL As we know...'piping' or 'welting' consists in enclosing or covering a 'plastic cord' or similar with a narrow band (strip) , as of leather or another material. This covered cord is sewn into the seams or edges as a reinforcement or trimming. I mean that besides giving shape to your project it adds strength to it. To do some of this demonstration I am using 'a household Singer 241-12 Sewing Machine', needle 18(110) was changed for a 22 (140)needle, the thread is 'polyester' standard -number 8. Tip One-Notice how I changed the 'standard foot' for a 'special foot' which is useful to sew 'piping' and 'zippers'. You could use both sides just by sliding the foot and turning about the little screw to tighten it in its place. At the time of doing the last sewing (I mean attaching the welting to the seams) check the video carefully that I moved the 'sliding-foot' just a little to get a closer sewing of the 'piping'. Tip Two-In this tutorial I am showing to ways of doing this 'task'...one is by preparing your 'welting' beforehand and the other is by doing it at the same time. I prefer the first option. Tip Three-Watch carefully how I changed the 'former foot' by a 'rounded foot'. This kind of foot is also useful...most of shoemakers and upholsterers use it. To do it so, just unscrew some little bolts and make your right adjustment by releasing the 'spring-presser' and moving the 'vertical bar' in its right position (notice the adjustment is done when the 'teeth of the small plate ...
AUTOMOTIVE LEATHER UPHOLSTERY- How to Make 'Foamed Pleats or Channels' on Leather-TUTORIAL This time I am going to demonstrate TWO METHODS of making 'Straight Pleats or Channels on Leather. To do it so, I am going to use 'On Top Stitches'(4 mm long), and the foam is hard density, 1 cm thick.. The first method is simple and it consists in glueing the 'leather piece' all around the edges to the 'foam' which already has been covered on the other side with a 'backing of fabric'. In this case i am giving 2mm of allowance. The second method (I am using for the seat) is leaving 'Loose' the leather piece . Just glue one edge as a guide.This method makes your 'pleats or channels' protrude or stand out better than the former way. In this case I am giving 5mm for allowance. How To Get the Allowances? Easy!...First, Test on a small piece of leather and foamy pattern, then Sew it straight enclosing your channel in two lines...then measure 'on top' how much your stuff 'shrink'. Try with different foam thicknesses( 1 cm, 1.5 cm; 1/2 of an inch, etc) in order to know your allowance. Good Luck!!!

Upholstery - Carpeting Subwoofer Box. A video demonstrating how I carpet my fiberglass sub boxes. I am no expert at this but there is not much info about this kind of upholstery available. So I thought this is better then nothing. The carpet used is unbacked automotive carpet. If its unbacked its pliable to bend to curves etc. A box made with MDF is different. Edges means you have to have seams showing. Music by One Dollar Short

Automotive Upholstery-How to adjust 'the Hook Timing' on your sewing machine-TUTORIAL To do this 'basic demostration' I am using an 'old singer sewing machine 241-12', single needle (140/22), flat bed...a simple one! Procedures for another trade-marks of sewing machines are almost similar. It is very important for an upholsterer to know these basic procedures. If something more difficult...go to with a specialist. Before doing any movement...disconnect the 'sewing machine' from any power source. At the end of the video I show a picture with the 'long-arm steering-wheel holder' I am still testing this device in order to do some little adjustments. This product is very useful to make your 'hand-stitching' easier on car 'stering wheels' If have acceptance of my device...I could also manufacture some other products like another holders for 'shift-knobs', 'hand-brake levers'; small and medium presses to do 'embossing' a 'debossing', plus the 'seals' included. On the other hand, I do not forget that I have to get ready the 'upholstery courses' for my 'interested users'.

REAL LEATHER UPHOLSTERY-How To Make Foamed Channels On Leather and The Use of 'Velcro'.-TUTORIAL I am first demonstrating 'how to make the foamed straight pleats' on leather. I am using an artisan method which is leaving 'loose' the leather piece where 'on-top stitches' go(check former video) 'Velcro' has come to replace 'zippers', 'listing wires' and others 'Listing rods' are used to attach and give shape to your seat design. These 'listing wires' are pulled down through the hard foam of the seat, then they are attached to the frame by using 'upholstery hog rings' with a special pliers. For this 'back-rest' I am using 'Velcro', instead. If used properly...it is very strong and do not disassemble. What is 'velcro'?...It is the brandname for 'hook and loop fasteners' or 'hook and loop tape'.These are special fibres. How to use this stuff?...Use the 'loop side tape' (hairier loops) attached and sewn (by using a 'strong plastic adhesive) to the foamed leather panels...the 'hook side' goes attached by the same 'strong plastic adhesive' to the hard foam of your seat. These stuff comes in different sizes, colours, and strength, according to your needs. When using 'Velcro' the job is easier to manouver like when fitting 'back-rests' for instance. Good Luck!!!

BASIC UPHOLSTERY-HOW TO MAKE 'DIAMOND TUFTING PATTERNS'-TUTORIAL For this 'deep-buttoned style' I am going to make 'One Line or Row of Diamonds'. These methods are called 'Capitonne, Quilted or Deep Buttoned French Designs'. I have thought through to post 'this furniture design tutorial' because it is also used in automotive upholstery. These designs are found in old coaches, carriages, and the first old automobiles. It consists in making or forming 'diamonds or rhomboidal figures' giving its shape just by folding the sides of your drawings on leather and pushing the corners down through into the holes previously made in the foam. It is called 'tufting' because of the way of tufting many layers of cotton to give the desired shape (these methods were used in the past, but prevail nowadays). Nevertheless, things have become simpler and easier...just by using 'foam'. Are we going to use stitches?----No, not at all. So, How are we going to 'give shape' and 'hold firm' the diamond figures?---Easy!, just by using buttons(directly deep-attached). For this demonstration to make procedures easier I have first tied an additional 'strong thread' in the corners of the rhombs...then pushing the leather and pulling the cords into the holes through the foam to the wrong side of the piece of wood. To get this purpose...use a long needle which goes and pulls the thread through to the other side...threads are tacked and tied with staples or tacks. How am I going to form my rhomboidal figures?---Easy!...to give shape to your figures, add 2 cm or 3/4 of ...

AUTOMOTIVE UPHOLSTERY - TUTORIAL Leather-Wrapping a Pair of Metal-Door-Panels TUTORIAL Just two procedures used in Automotive Upholstery. The first one shows some steps to leather-wrapp a door-panel by projecting a background of straight-high-relief molds or figures which stand out on the leather surface simulating an embossed design. Different modeled forms or high-reliefs can be done using hard cardboard and adding some layers of the same stuff that project and give shape to a variety of designs which would be reflected on the leather surface. The second procedure shows two ways of using a ´leather-hole-punch´ to cut out holes in leather. The first way is by pounding the punch with a hammer. And the second easier way just by twisting back and forth the punch. In both cases use a piece of an ínsole-shoe-leather´as a back-support.
