Sewing Capabilities

Sewing table

OUTDOOR SEWING SOLUTIONS have 6 industrial sewing machine of which 4 are set into a 18 meter table.

The two machines not set into the table are a Bar tacking machine and Global zigzag machine we use for binding.

Machine range from straight stitch to zigzag and bar taking machines.

Two machines are long arm machines which allow us to manage larger jobs by reaching further into the middle of panels. This is go for new manufacturing jobs so we do not crease the materials while sewing and great for repairing large jobs being able to get more material under the machine.

The different stitch capabilities of each machine means we can work more efficiently. One job might require different stitch type and thread weights. 

What is a compound walking foot?
There are a few different variations of the walking foot feed system, but the most common one is the triple, a.k.a. compound feed system. Compound feed sewing machines have two alternating presser feet which move the material by synchronising the motion of the needle-bar, the inside presser foot and the bottom feed dog.

Threads

Threads:

We only use the leading anti-wick thread for sewing operations in awnings, tents, boat covers, tarpaulins and sail making, to promote longevity of our workmanship.

With continued exposure to sunlight and weather, the threads we use are formulated to prevent colour fade and retain strength by spinning a sheath of cotton around a core of continuous filament polyester. It is then coated with an anti-wicking agent to prevent water absorption and water migration along the thread, thus assisting the thread to maintain its dexterity.

Second weekend of coaching for the RS Tera North squad

The second weekend of coaching for the RS Tera North squad was held on 28 and 29 November and was hosted by Leigh and Lowton SC. The forecast was for high winds throughout the weekend so the Coaches were a bit stumped when they arrived early on Saturday morning to find little or no wind at all.

By the time the 25 strong squad had arrived, rigged, been briefed and got changed the wind had picked up and the fleet went afloat to practice using their tell tales. The more experienced helms sailed in the stronger wind coached by Bernard and Georgie, with the less experienced group sailing in a quieter area with coaches Brett and Julie. A long session saw lots of smiling faces come ashore – happy sailors ready for lunch and keen to get back out on the water!

The afternoon session gave more focus to upwind sailing and by the end of the day it was clear that the fleet were now much sharper and that despite the driving rain occasionally sticking the tell tales to the sail, everyone was able to read and interpret them and make appropriate decisions on sail setting. Fleet racing gave everyone a chance to show how much they had progressed.

 

 

RS Tera North

Sunday saw a very early start with the sailors sent out just after Coach Graeme’s fitness session and before the wind really picked up. It was fantastic to watch the fleet reveling in the windy conditions, with even the smallest helms coping well with reefed sails. A quick lunch was had then it was back on the water for the final sailing session, the fleet coming ashore just as the wind really picked up. Masts were quickly taken down and sails furled whilst we watched the tops being blown off the waves!

After a great debriefing session the fleet set off on their way home, all smiling after a wonderful weekend.
