Finally got myself a sewing machine despite the damage it did to my masculinity. I told my girl friend my new hobby must be kept top secret.
I was wondering if you guys had any advice on sewing silnylon. It appears that it isn't the easiest thing to deal with and has driven me to the edge on multiple occasions when working on my tarp. I am not sure if I want high or low tension or there are any other controls or nuances I should be aware of. I am using the Gutterman's thread recommended by diygearsupply.com (great place!!).
