    Sewing crinkle Taffeta?

    I recently aquired a piece of crinkle taffeta---------is there anything special i need (special thread or needles)? I've never used the stuff before----------thanks!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    I just made a hammock using the 2.6 oz/sy polyester black crinkle taffeta from DIYGearSupply.

    The only thing I had to adjust was the tension on the top thread. On my thread injector, the tension dial goes from 0-10. I set the tension at 6 for the crinkle fabric. For the typical nylons I set it at 4.

    As always, start every project with a new sharp needle.
