    I have a HUGE piece of netting that I stitched together years ago - it's been used over the stern of a sailboat and to cover a mini-van. With the addition of some loops it could be hung and several kids could fit underneath.

    I also have 10 - 20 yards of wally-ripstop.

    What I don't have is time. I'd be happy to ship the fabric to anyone who can volunteer to make the hammocks. PM me at sandykayak at yahoo dot com

    It would be great if someone at the receiving end could build hammock stands. Perhaps someone from HF could send instructions and pictures. Hopefully, they can find the wood...or even PVC pipes or metal pipes.

    concrete should be available down there. If they can get posts they can put concrete in the ground and set up alot of posts.

    Somehow I think the people of the Caribbean can figure out a way to hang a hammock.

    Im one of the supervisors at a School for the Deaf up here that wants to help Haiti. We have a dormitory and I just spoke with some dorm staff (we got 4 sewing machines here to teach students independent living skills) about Hammocks for Haiti and they are excited and want to make hammocks- Using Just Jeffs pictorial instructions. Got to find some nylon at least and get the students involved!

    Gargoyle, what length do you think we should use for kid's hammocks? Is 2 yards too short?
    Excellent Mac, 2 yards should work for the little guys. As soon as I get some pics loaded, we can see them in their hanging glory. Tell Thing 1 thanks.

    Send your donated items (fabric included) to the address in my signature. I will do the sewing here. I appreciate the contribution, no matter what it is.

    Harpo thats great, the fabric does not neccessarily need to be sil., some good taffeta will work. Got to take some pics of those kids sewing!

    Exactly what I was thinking. The soil is terrible down there, more coral and rocks. Concrete posts will be good.

    Gargoyle- I was going to contact sandykayak as suggested by Mac, then I saw your post...do you want the stuff from sandykayak sent to you still or want the kids here to use that to sew? I dont care... its all for a good cause!
