"The Big Book of Boat Canvas is a thorough revision and updating of Karen Lipe's two popular earlier books, "Boat Canvas Cover to Cover and "More Boat Canvas, combined with a whole new section on below-decks sewing projects. In this latest volume Lipe ranges well beyond the boundaries of traditional canvas work to create a comprehensive guide to fabric work on board. You'll find dozens of traditional canvas projects--sail covers, awnings, duffel bags, dodgers, and Biminis, wind chutes, winter covers--all with clear, step-by-step instructions, generously illustrated. You'll also find dozens of not-so-traditional fabric projects to add comfort and a touch of elegance to your below-decks spaces: custom interior cushions, fitted sheets and daycovers, privacy curtains, lee cloths, even a tablecloth to fit your varnished table. Lipe offers a veritable minicourse in interior yacht decoration, dozens of useful sewing tips, a careful detailing of materials nad tools needed for each project, and an extensive discussion of modern fabrics appropriate for exterior and interior use. In short, this handy book covers everything you need to know to sew comfort, utility, and style into your boat.<P>"A treasure of functional and fanciful projects you can sew yourself."--"Multihulls<P>"You'll find this book of the utmost practical help."--"The Ensign<P>It passed what is for me the acid test of a how-to book: "The Big Book of Boat Canvas made me want to get at some long-neglected projects and even to try some that I never thought I could manage."--"SAILCopyright © Libri GmbH.
