Postby german_kasper » 26 Jan 2015, 14:24

Dear Punch and Judy Friends in the UK,

But i have some problems with the cover: is there anybody who can give me some tips or have some photos how you fix the cover on your stage?

Hope to hear from you.

All the best

There are various methods of making and fixing the cover. The usual method for outdoor use is to have a canvas cover made in one piece, which wraps around the booth and entry is achieved via a long zip fastener (Reißverschluß) sewed to the canvas flaps at the back. The roof cover is a separate piece. The canvas is attached to the framework using Velcro (Klettband), sewn on the canvas and glued onto the wood. Alternatively Pop fasteners are used. These are like giant press studs (druckknopf) - the male part stitches to the canvas while the female socket is screwed to the wood.
