Hello Sailrite! I am very excited to begin my first project -- recovering the v-berth, aft berth, and two settees (plus an extra bed insert cushion) on our new-to-us Ericson 30 Plus.

I am having trouble finding information about how to determine how much thread I should purchase. Can you please direct me to where I can find information?

Thank you,
Debbie

Hi Debbie,

A good rule is to get 1 oz of thread for every 8 yards of fabric purchased.

Best Regards, Matt Grant

If your sewing machine has the capability and you have a two spool thread stand, you might want to consider buying two cones at a time so you can wind a bobbin and sew at the same time.
