Hi! I know this info is probably out there somewhere but for the life of me I cannot find it or I have just overlooked it. I am wanting to make my own gear. I think it would be a fun thing for me and my son to do. I have been researching and thinks to all of you guys I have a wealth of info but, I cannot find anything on what the best thread, needle and type of stitch is for underquilts and tarps? I read somewhere that a denim needle is best which makes since I think but what about thread? Any suggestions?
