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?

1974 24' Swiftsure
