    1/8" shock cord source?

    Just received my order from AHE and finished up my neat sheet uq/tq.... then realized I forgot to order 1/8 " shock cord to hang it to the suspension. duh. Anyone know of a good source (store) I can run out and pick up some? JoAnnes doesnt have it, nor Lowes, Home Depot, Harbor freight... Would West Marine? (not on their website)...

    If you have a REI store nearby, they carry it. Some crafts stores do.

    REI or I've picked it up at a Sport Chalet, not sure if you have that near you though.

    Thanks guys... I will be close to an REI, after we move. Only got EMS here. None of the other stores mentioned are around here. I was thinking kayak shops but they are a bit further away. Maybe Ill run over to EMS- even thought they usually don't have what I need. If not, Plan B will be to order and just finish it a bit later. Will post my first new DYI stuff- first sewing I've done since "Outdoor Sewing" class in Jr. High!- (more than 25 yrs ago!)

    I found (diygearsupply.com) to be an excellent source for material. Good luck!

    I second... or third this sentiment. Scott is great to deal with.
