    Greetings From Upstate NY.....

    I've been lurking for the last month or two trying to educate myself in the art & science of hammocking and thread injecting. I've discovered that there is so much info on this site that it's often times either very difficult or time consuming to cull through all the information presented. That actually is a very good thing.......
    My goal at this point is make a DIY single hammock, 2 person hammock and maybe a tarp or two. Weight is not an issue for me as the hammocks will be hung on my property for serious decompression time....
    I have 3 injectors - Singers 237, 301 and my recently acquired 251-12 that I'm familiarizing myself with. I've been sewing for quite some time but my skills are sketchy at best. I will say that I have improved considerably from all the info on this site.
    That said, thanks for all the info & videos in advance. I do have a boatload of questions but will wait to ask them till I'm a bit more educated on this subject. I need to ask intelligent questions if I expect intelligent answers....
    All Good Medicine,
    Crow

    Creator, everything we do leaves a track. May our tracks be ones we would want you to see and others to follow.

    Welcome, Crow! Good start. Leave the 2 person hammock until last. That way you'll likely never get to it and avoid frustration (and bodily compression). On the other hand, a two-hammock tarp creates a friendly protected space. You have an advantage, planning to hang on your own land. Go out and plant trees now exactly where you'll want them. This may seem overly farsighted, but time flies when you're having fun.

    Welcome to the forums, Crow!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
