Upholstery Question

Recommended Posts

I was told by a large fabric and upholstery supplier that they could sew up some hidem piping if I supplied the fabric. Now, after buying all the welting and the raw fabric to match, they tell me they can't, or rather, won't make the hidem.

I've searched the net for DIY instructions on making it and have had no success. My wife is a wiz at the sewing machine, but all I can find is instructions for "double welting" rather than hidem. Any upholstery experts out there with either instructions or someone who can or will make it up for me if I supply the fabric?

Thanks,

Enfield Auto Restoration, Enfield Ct. Does leather hidem from your hide, call them and ask if they'll do your fabric...

RT, I know Enfield does Wire-on from the customers material, didn't know that they did Hide-Em. Please post photos of your project, would like to see this turns out.

Well, the folks at Enfield were very nice, but they only do hidem in leather. I did find someone at SMS who finally agreed to do it for a rather exorbitant price, but it looks like I don't have a choice at this point.
