The MFA Southeast Regional Workshop is being held Sept. 28-29 at Lakeside Marine Canvas Inc. in Buford, Ga. The two-day workshop features marine education on pontoon boat patterning and fabrication, efficient cushion patterning techniques and sewing machine maintenance. It also offers opportunities to discuss technology and other concerns with fellow fabricators, which is something Lakeside Marine Canvas owners Daymon and Joni Johnstone find extremely helpful. “The networking and demonstrations at marine workshops give us insight into how technology is being used not only to make our industry more efficient, but also to create more complex and exact quality fabrications.”
The Johnstones consider access to publications, networking and workshops through their MFA membership an invaluable part of the growth of their business. “For us, the introduction of new technology and people of expertise within our field has been a greater benefit than we could have imagined.”
