Has anyone with DIY interest visited these folks near Allentown, PA?

I'm interested in their 10 piece sampler of 2-3 yard samples of .75 oz nylon fabric for $60 + shipping. (Weight in HF scale more likely 1.0 oz or higher)
Also on the feel, knot holding and splicing of the dacron line in strengths suitable to hanging a tarp.
I've searched HF on this company, and threads immediately sidetrack, so:
- Please: No reminder, again, that sailmaker's weight per yard is for a smaller yard and needs to scaled up by about 25% to get more familiar "true square yard" raw fabric wt.
No comment on true weight vs coated vs uncoated weight. That always holds.
What does matter, imo, is whether the fabric is coated, and with what and for what purpose, if known.
