    I have survived the reputational issue of my shed appearing to have joined the DARK SIDE......

    ..... and I can now report that ALL 6 leather seat covers are now complete......

    Many thanks to NCArcher for his coaching, walking foot sewing machine and, above all else, his support.
    If Clark Rubber had delivered the upholstery webbing as they advised, the seats and hence the 6 Orcadian chairs, would also be finished.
    As compared to the quoted $500 EACH (!), the total cost for the seat cushions has been $150 for the leather and $160 for foam, Dacron and webbing which equals about $50 each. No, they won't be as good as they would have been if done professionally, but my girls are pleased that I made all of the chairs that are my gift to them.
    I'll put some pics in the original chair thread when they are finished but I'm pretty pleased with the outcome.
