A Night for Them to Remember

When my son asked if he could use my car to take his girlfriend to a formal dance, I decided to do something even better for him. I remembered when his father took me to our first formal dance, and the memories of that night were still so clear because of how romantic his father had planned everything. Since he and his girlfriend remind us so much of how we were then, I decided to check into a local limo service for Toronto area residents. I knew that his father had not paid an outrageous amount for the limo that he had gotten for us, so I hoped that was still the case even though it was decades later.

I called the only limo company that I was aware of in our area, and I was so excited when they told me the rates for their vehicles. Continue reading

Repair Fabric Car Seats

A tear in car upholstery is not always easy to repair, but with time and patience, most people can repair small holes without having to pay for expensive materials and tools. You can take your car to an upholsterer to be repaired, but they tend to be expensive and often end up recovering the whole seat. Frequently they cannot match the original fabric, so you end up with seats that do not match and a big bill.

It is easier to repair fabric seats, than vinyl seats. All you need is a strong needle and good thread, both of which you can buy from your local arts and craft shop. Match the colour of the thread to your car seat carefully a good match is key to getting a reasonable result. Make sure that the needle you buy can cope with thick fabric, but has a small enough eye to pass through the fabric without leaving holes. Check that the thread can pass through the eye too. Upholstery thread is thicker than sewing thread.

Do not to be tempted to stitch the tear together as you would a tear in an item of clothing. If you stitch the tear like this, it will be too tight and another tear will appear alongside the original tear. The seat fabric must still be able to give a bit when someone sits on the seat.
