    Default Recommendations for sewing book.

    I'm a fairly competent sewing machinist but have never thought about doing canvas repairs on the boat. Are there any books which explain how to repair, measure and make new cockpit covers and other canvas items?

    Not a book but the Sailrite website is very good.

    It sometimes appears on ebay at a lower price.

    A newer version of the book is in Casey's Complete Sailboat Maintenance. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Caseys-Comp...ords=don+casey Wonderful reading.

    Again, leave a search on ebay for a good price.
