Over the weekend we read the SailRite instructions that came with the kit and watched the SailRite Tutorial Video on how to sew a sail.
Today we set up the sewing machine on the dining room table, sewed a few practice seams to get the tension set correctly and began sewing Gardens' mizzen sail!
This project is going so much smoother and easier than Karen Ann's 105 sq. ft. balance lug sail two years ago. Admittedly, the mizzen is only 26 sq. ft. so it is easier to maneuver and handle but my sewing is much improved, too.
I have one question to ask SailRite in the morning (didn't realize I had a question until after they closed for the day) and then I'll finish up the sail tomorrow.
