Re: Sailrite LS-1 or LSZ-1?

You're right, you need the zig-zag just for sail repair. Both of my parents are upholsterers and neither has ever had a zig-zag machine. The only other time that you mught need it on a boat is if you were making some curtains out of a sheer material you might sometimes want to run a zig-zag stitch along the cut edge before you hem to keep it from unravelling. If you have to pay for 2-3 sail repairs while you own the machine it would just about pencil out to buy the LSZ1.
