What is the ideal stitch length for sewing Sunbrella fabric?

For stitch length, you always want to sew with the longest stitch length that your sewing machine will allow. For most regular, home sewing machines, the longest stitch length is around 4 millimeters. If you have access to a heavy-duty sewing machine or even an industrial sewing machine, those lengths can range up to around 8 or 10 millimeters. Any of these stitch lengths is fine to use, and the longer the better. We recommend 7 stitches per inch for upholstery applications, in alignment with Fabric Joint Industry Standards.
