    Patch or seal extra needle holes

    So a little extra fabric snuck under the needle as I was sewing the ridge line

    Would it be better to patch this or just seal it?

    I've had that happen before. Take some GE Silicone II, and rub it into the holes with your finger's - undiluted. Then use a paper tower and wipe it clean. Has worked very well as a repair method for me.

    Agreed, I have used silicone II, also the permatex windshield silicone sealant works well. I have even used shoe goo. I think a patch would create more liability. It should be easy peasy and will last a long time.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
