Kite Repair Sewing Services
All kites are constructed using three different stitching methods. Straight, zigzag and 3 step zigzag. Any good kite repair service center will be able to match the manufactures’ construction in order to guarantee a long lasting repair. Our loft is equipped with three different industrial sewing machines, purposely designed and built for the following stitching applications:
Our walking foot straight stitch machine is the perfect tool for closing seams. However, due to its heavy duty nature it is also used for harness, board bag, canvas and boat cover repairs to only name a few.
3 Step Zigzag
The 3 step zigzag is the preferred sewing technique for almost all kite seam constructions due to its wide needle hole spacing. We are able to adjust the width and forward feed and will match the original seam of your kite.
The zigzag stitch pattern is used by some manufactures for limited applications. We will match the construction technique during the repair. However, the main application for zigzag in the kite industry you will find in spliced loops of flying lines, bridles and most other line constructions.
Is there anything that can not be repaired?
The answer is yes and no. After approximately 250 session the kite reached its life expectancy. The material coatings are broken down and the fabric lost its form stability and strength. Repairs still can be done but we would advise against them.
Other than than, we can repair anything and you will be pleased with the outcome. Unfortunately due to a limited access to the manufactures’ fabrics color matching is always a challenge but we try our best and consult with you before the repair if nothing close is available.
