Longarm sewing machine, zig-zag, three step and straight stitch

Outdoor Sewing Solutions has invested in a Longarm sewing machine that will do stitch in zig-zag, three step and straight stitch.

The Solent 98-650 Longarm has been purchased for Sail repairs and manufacture.

Solent machine is specially manufactured for the sailmaking industry and will give us Zigzag stitch and triple stitch on light heavy jobs.

This machine will fill a gap in our machine armoury for making one design sails, repairing Mylar and Windsurf sails without the need to roll the sail as tight, therefore risking creasing the materials.

Windsurf repair can now be done more efficiently as well as Myler dinghy sails.

The zig-zag, three step and straight stitch capability also make this machine perfect for One Design Sails.

With three stitches on one machine, it also increases our capacity freeing up another machine to focus on other Outdoor Products such as Awning repairs and Contract manufacturing product.

More investment next year will give us another walking foot machine that will also specialise in binding.

Other machines we also run:

  • Brother walking foot Straight stitch, Light to Heavy duty.
  • Phaff Triple stitch (6 point), Light to medium for sail and tent repair.
  • Global Zigzag, Light to Medium.
  • 28 stitch Bar tacking machine for Webbing.
  • Long arm twin needle Highlead sewing machine for Medium to heavy duty sewing.
