I am new to the forum here. I am looking to make a DIY hammock (bridge style most likely) and some quilts.
I am in Canada and it seems that all of the places that I have found materials for purchase are in the United States. The cost of shipping and customs tends to make this a bit on the cost prohibitive side.
As for what i have found so far in Canada. I have a local climbing gear shop that I frequent (I am a rock climber too). So I have ready access to webbing, carabiners, rope and rings, etc. They also sell silnylon and polyurethane coated tarps of various sizes.
I have found a Canadian source for high quality down for making the quilts that I want. What I haven't found is a source for ripstop nylon, silnylon and other fabrics for the actual hammock, the quilt shell and liners and noseeum mesh for the bug net and quilt baffles.
Searching the forum for this information didn't yield anything useful. Does anyone have any Canadian sources for the fabrics necessary to make hammocks, quilts and tarps.
