Hey guys, I'm new to hammocks and the forums, and i've got the DIY bug from watching all your videos. I just picked up a Doublenest and made some whoopies... On my list to do are a TQ, Tarp, Bugnet, and converting an old sleeping back to an UQ.
That being said, I've consulted the women in my life over sewing machines and of the two who have sewing machines and knew their way around a needle, both claim that they dont think their sewing machines could handle the heavy materials like polyester webbing and thick layers of materials like the tie-out supports of a tarp.
Is this hogwash? Or do I really need a special industrial sewing machine for these jobs? One of the machines I have access to is a Singer 401A, the other I have no idea the make and model.
