It depends on the material that they are. If they are durasoft, they can be glued or stitched. If it is cloth, then they can be glued and stitched. Take them to a shoe repair shop and they can tell you what is the best plan of attack.

Leather product give best or not?

real leather products are very good if maintained properly
wears well and always looks good
there is a leather product on the market that is made up of leather shavings that are glued and compressed under heat ( composite leather )
Looks very real , is used extensively in house upholstery, car seats , hand bags , half the price of real leather but after a while it de-laminates and falls apart
If you car is less that $20.000 with leather seats, there is every chance that it is composite leather and after a period of say 5 years will show signs of delamination
If you have a leather sofa ( lounge ) for around the $2.000.00 price there is every possibility that it is composite leather and will look bad after 3 years of family service
If on the other hand your vehicle is over $100k then there will be a tag saying genuine animal leather and that will last longer than the car

I sew thin leather w/Janome MC4000 using leather needle. Want to try thicker leather but not damage machine. How thick will this machine take?

Be careful sewing thick materials with a domestic machine. Even though a lot of machines are supposedly able to sew thick leather & fabrics, it could damage your machine in the long run. If you value your machine, you might want to find a second machine (used mechanicals, older Singers, etc., probably work better for this purpose) to sew thick fabric. Save your nice primary machine for more conventional uses.

How to Clean Auto Leather

I use Griot's Garage leather care products and have been very pleased with the results. Thy have a leather care spray that will clean light dirt, but very dirty leather may require an interior cleaner that is PH blanced so it does not dry the leather out. Then after the leather is clean, allow it to warm in the sun and apply leather care, leather 3 in 1 or leather rejuvenator, all excellent products, that will sink into the leather and keep it supple and prevent cracking. I would not use shoe cleaner as that leather is dyed differently and may be too harsh for fine leather as is used on vehicle seats. Also keep in mind that in most vehicles, only the leather "seating surfaces" are actually leather, the rest is matching vinyl so be sure to test anything you use on a non-visible spot first.

As for repairs, there are kits available to repair holes and rips. Many are simple and require a small patch behind the leather and the placing of a color matched "goo" on top of the patch and pressing of a grained paper over the goo to resemble the leather graining, so it looks similar when dried.

Best of luck.

What is the best material for an electric massage chair?

most chairs are made out of leather, vinyl, or some kind of synthetic leather. In general, vinyl is the best material because it is the most able to stretch (from the massaging bars pushing on it repetitively) and the best at handling heat (which is included in most massage chairs). Leather will begin to crack after some period of use, because it is not as susceptible to stretching

My 1996 dodge neon has a crack in the dash by the defrost vent. is there a simple fix?

This depends on the type of crack ... if it is from the sun drying out the material and shrinking it a quick-fix will probably suffer the same fate and look worse when it happens. If the crack is from abuse (like when I threw a bunch of 2x4 lumber on mine and caused a crack) then you might be able to find some repair goo for it -- ask at an auto-parts store and they might have it ("repair goo" is not the real name of the material, but I don't know the real name off hand). Make sure you let the person who is helping you know whether your dash is real leather or synthetic material as the type of repair fluid used will vary with color and type of material to be repaired.
If you have a real-leather dash you might even be able to go to a leather-goods store and find a repair fluid there -- it would be basically the same as fixing a tear in a leather jacket. I know that the repair fluid exists, but I do not know the name ... just that I have seen it advertised on late-night television.
If you can't find a repair fluid that will work with the material that your dash is made from, or if your crack is caused by sun-aging of the material, you might have to replace the piece of the dash panel that is cracked to get rid of the damage. Just bare in mind that if your dash is sun-faded it will be very difficult to match the exact color with a replacement .. and you might be more annoyed with the color difference than you were with the crack.
