Hi Sailmaker and welcome to the Cruisers Forum - Where in China are you located? Do you get to sail? Are you near the ocean? Did you get to see any Olympic sailing in Qingdao?

Maybe you should go to Hong Kong and see how they make sails. You would probably learn a great deal about the practical aspects of constructing sails. Good luck on your new endeavor.

So I presume you are already working in a sail loft for someone else. Must be a good place to learn about making sails. No many sailmakers on this forum but many sail buyers!

Enjoy the forum.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I hope you can find more information on sailmaking. Lee sails out of Hong Kong has a lot of U. S. business.
Kind regards,
