Sew a dust cover for electronic item


Hackett ACT 2602, Australia

20th Mar 2023

Howdy folks. Looking for someone to sew two dust covers for electronic items. The items in questions are Coolscan 8000 ED and a Pakon 135+ film scanners. The covers will be fairly simple, basically a box with one side open. I can provide the material for the covers, which is polyester with a PVC coating. Slightly thicker than normal fabric. It might require a somewhat specialised sewing machine but with zero experience sewing I'm not sure if that's the case. Dimensions can be provided and/or you can take measurements of the scanners in person if you’d like. Located in Hackett ACT. Covers should look something like the attached photos. Thanks - Due date: Flexible

I have a 180cm long carpet, need a strip of velco sewed to back


Watson ACT, Australia

22nd Jun 2022

I have a 180cm long Persian rug that I want to hang to a wall. I'm exploring how much it would cost to discretely sew a strip of very strong velcro along one of the 180cm edges. Stitching would need to be kinda invisible as possible. If it works well, I'd probably look to do another rug or two. This video might help visualise it: - Due date: Before Friday, 1 July 2022

Sew rip in couch seam


Canberra ACT 2601, Australia

9th Aug 2021

This is a brand new couch - the seam on one side, the right back edge, is open a bit. The maker said, short of completely removing the material and doing it again: "you may try just hand stitching it yourself and at least it closes up the hole? It won't look exactly the same as before but at least this way it will cover up the hole." I can't sew. At all. And this is velvet. Anyone able to help with this small job?

Beautifully done! Thank-you so much!
