And silly me forgot why I came here - for a question:

We have a few small sail repairs that need to be done; a seam on the lightweight genoa has come undone, the nylon Swiftsure "symbol" as well as her sail number have mostly come off, and a few other sail repairs.

I'm pretty handy with sewing, and would like to give these a shot myself. I have access to what I believe is a full repair kit - awl, palm, sail patches (not just tape) and thread, etc.

Does anybody have any suggestions on doing these myself? Also, for redoing the symbol and numbers, any tips on fabric?
