/ Rucksack stitching repair - Bristol
I've got a Montane running pack that I've used for a couple of years for hillrunning mostly, and I've recently managed to put quite a large hole down the side by ripping the stitching. Normally I would have a go myself, but I think this is beyond my skills as a seamstress...
Does anyone have any recommendations of somewhere in the Bristol area where I could get this fixed? I could just go to a local place I'm sure, but I'm not sure if the fabric requires a particular type of thread or anything.
Thanks in advance!
Has the stitching gone or has the material pulled away from the stitching ?
It may be that the seam was faulty .
However probably an easy repair for anybody with a domestic sewing machine, it is unlikely to be heavy rucksack material.
Any synthetic thread that you cannot snap with bare hands will be OK. Should cut your finger before snapping.
I've got some thick cordura and some thick linen thread (stronger than synthetic). I'd be willing to have a look at it. I'm in Stoke Gifford.

Are their any yacht chandlers near you? Ask if there's a local sail maker. I got one to repair an elderly canvas bag for me.!
