    Need small stiching on the glove. Where to?

    Having a brain fart moment at PM today and low sliding, palm slider on one of my Held gloves came partially unstitched.

    Want to take it somewhere to get fixed, but no idea where. Any recommendations? If possible I would rather not go to Chilliwack, Mission and such as its a bit too far from dt.

    Thanks

    I had the seam on one of my gloves come apart once, so I just stitched it back together by myself. All you need is some reasonably strong thread, and a needle.
    Of course if you're young, and out drinking, whoring, and toking till all hours on a Saturday nite, forget about it.

    Any shoe repair place can do this for you, as they've got experience in working with leather. There's one next to Save-On/Pricemart in Coquitlam (opposite Coquitlam Centre) that I've used to re-stitch my gloves. He did a great job, and the cost was minimal.

    Actually, there are arguments against using Kevlar thread as the shear force in a crash may be high enough so as to have the thread cut/tear the leather to which it's sewn. Use a thread with some amount of stretch and give, like a high strength Nylon.

    Hey Marco, can you post a picture of the glove? This post is useless without pics! Hahahaha.

    All jokes aside. My people would like to see the damage on it so they can see how they can fix it. I'm not promising anything though, but they might be able to get it fixed for you.

    Fair enough. It's hard to take a good pic that shows damage properly. Basically part of palm slider came unstitched. Leather underneath it and kevlar are all fine and not torn.

    here are 2 pics


    I moved slider up so that leather underneath it can be seen beter

    My people said that it will need a new piece of leather to re-cover that. They too suggested Stitchers. Should cost between 20-40 bucks. It needs hand stitching.

    I mentioned about the thread. They said that nylon should be ok. Kevlar thread is not common. They don't know who carries it locally.

    But if you do insist on Kevlar. Here's where you can get it on-line and you can bring it in the shop to stitch it with.

    As for the leather. Do not to use Genuine leather. Genuine Leather is just and industry term for cheap leather. ( like Mcdonalds 100% beef slogan) Ask for Top-grain. Full grain is best but might be too thick.

    Sorry, but my people don't have any leather pieces available to stitch on that, otherwise it would of been done for you.

    Thanks gents for all the help. Stitchers is close by home, so i will go there and get this done. Better and cheaper than to buy new gloves.
