hiya

 could you tell me if there is a way to stop or reduce the wobble you get sewing acrylic canvas length ways ?
 I use a flat felled seam or just turn a 1/2" edge and sew on reinforcement and just cant seem to get the material to stay flat ? I guess its something to do with the weave because if i seam it width ways across the fabric it doesn't wobble ?

BTW my sailrite LZ1 is super :-)

Smaller needle and thread, but this is not advisable for outdoor projects. Also use of double stick basting tape helps. But you are correct that the weave is often the issue and this is just normal. Also set the stitch to full length.
