    Its really not that tough, you learn how to run a sewing machine, buy some nice cotton cloth, use nylon thread (resists humidity and sunlight) and go for it. Practice making bags etc that are simple and check out youtube and sailrite videos for how to.

    Update just finished the recovering of all the cushions except the attic (v berth ones) because they pretty much live in the garage year round anyway. Details of steps in creating these removable (like fitted sheets) covers will be presented in a later detail post for each quadrant of the main cabin(pretty grandiose language for a C22 eh?). but overall teaser pix is below showing the cabin from the entry. Finished set of cusions in place (1).jpg

    My sister got those somewhere, Walmart or World Import the one with signal flags was hand made by my Mom years ago. She crossed the bar this year but i guess some of her sewing skills live on.
