I have this old (1985) Canadian goose down comforter that I bought new and love. I like it's "baffled channel" construction much better than the "baffled box" type that prevails these days. Problem is, some of the down has leaked out over the years, so I'd like to replace it. I bought a big goose down pillow to cannibalize for just that purpose. Opening up the end stitching and stuffing is no big deal. But how to sew it back up? Having never sewn anything more than a simple rip or two, I searched Google and found nothing. Then, Craigs List and the local Yellow Pages, and not a single person offering sewing services. Amazing, really. Have they become an extinct species? It looks to me like a heavy-duty sewing machine might be required. Am I right? Or is this job doable by me by hand? Maybe someone here (or a wife) has experience end-stitching a comforter and can advise.
