TIPS ON SEWING
MAKROLON®
* Needle coolers and diamond
tri-point needles are a must.
* Use a longer stitch length along
with additional foot pressure.
* Ensure slow and steady stitching
with little or no stopping.
* Make sure there's no backtacking or double stitch line
when attaching pieces.
* Use start and stop stitching
on Stamoid®, walking on and

off Makrolon.

This is the cut size of our Makrolon.
We cut the edges of the Makrolon
masking back exactly ½ inch on all
edges. A light touch using a new utility
knife blade and ruler does the job
nicely. This provides a crisp line to
match the cut edge of our trimming.
All trimming is overlaid exactly ½ inch
onto the Makrolon's four sides, right to
the edge of the new masking line. We
round all the Makrolon corners with
a sanding block and chamfer all edges
with a deburring tool prior to assembly.

Our top and bottom pieces of Stamoid
are laid out from our pattern two-ply.
We mark through the punched holes,
then add an extra ½ inch for attaching
to the Makrolon. We like to leave a trim
edge on all of a piece's tops, bottoms
and sides. This allows for staples to be
used in an area that will be cut off later.
Fabric directionality is important; we
always attach across the weft of the fabric for low stretch. Be sure to flip the
bottom layer of Stamoid, as it has an
inside and an outside. In this photo, we
have not yet roller cut the attachment
edges. This is the best way to ensure a
straight cut on edges that will be seen.
