In fact, the biggest item you will need will be your sewing machine. BUT don’t panic, you don’t have to run out and buy one at this stage, there are now quite a few companies that hire them out worldwide, making it really easy without putting a big initial investment before you actually know whether it’s for you or not. If you need help with this email us the area you live.

Module 5 – Repairs to your Seat Form
You will learn how to repair a seat form (Jargon Alert!) We will show you a few essential repairs that will save you a lot of time and money buying a new one. Most seats suffer from drivers and passengers getting into a vehicle, they use the seat sides as support instead of sitting directly on the seat base. This is the cause of most repairs. This just needs additional support to repair it and we will show you how!
