Today on the Burton Blog, hop in with @chrislcunningham, Burton's Senior VP of Global Product. He goes beyond work hard, play hard, using his free time to pick up new sports like wakesurfing, and he brings that energy and focus into the office every day. "I can always learn something that ties back to how we approach things at Burton," he says. Read more at the link in our bio.
Burton events manager @colbysears was setting up the @burtondemo_mthood center, which is the first place you can try out our upcoming winter gear. "The staff and myself took a break and went up to the hill for a few laps," he says. New gear and a sweet place to ride? Yeah we don't blame you at all. #BurtonRegram
Ever had a seam split on you? You can either send it to us to fix for you, or, you can do it yourself at home as a #BurtonQuickFix. You’ll need: Seam tape, a seam ripper, scissors, a sewing machine and an iron. Time: 15-20 minutes. Step 1: Turn your garment inside out and locate the tear. Step 2: Using a seam ripper, carefully open up the seam at least an inch on either side of the torn area. Remove the old seam tape. Step 3: Line up all layers. Using a clip helps keep them in place. Step 4: Start your sewing machine stitch higher than the affected area and match the stitch width. Stitch down, back up, and down again over the same track. Step 5: Check to make sure it’s lined up correctly from the outside. Remove any old stitching with scissors or a lighter (be careful with 🔥) Step 6: Turn your garment back right side out and carefully line up the new seam tape, overlapping at least half an inch on either side. Step 7: Use your iron to slowly work your way down the tape so that it adheres fully to the fabric. The tape’s edges turn glossy when sealed. Step 8: If you have a hot press, you could use that on top of the tape as a bonus step. Use it for 15 seconds at 123 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s it! Let us know what other types of easy repairs you’d like to learn to do at home.
