I decided to repair a torn out loop at the clew of my jib sail myself. After jabbing myself with a needle multiple times-once down to the bone and bending the needle (and yes, a needle for sail cloth and I'm more handy with a needle and thread than the average person), I took it to a sail loft. They did a good inspection and found that the entire luff was really close to needing to be resewn.
It was $75 for them to address the tack and clew loops and to restitch the luff. Not bad at all. Well worth the money to have professional eyes laid on it.
