    Norcal (Chico), Intro

    Name's Justin. In the pic, thats my boy Toby. Live in Chico, Ca. New to hanging i guess, but love DIY. I have made a few HH clones based on stickys patterns, and am currently trying to make a WBBB clone. A lot harder, and already had a pretty major screw up. I also use an UQ made from a poncho liner.

    Lucky for me, Ive got an 85 year old grandma who loves to help me sew, and who knows all the tricks.

    Im real familiar with all the local sources for materials if anyone has questions.

    anyway, if anyone has any cool DIY prjects send em my way, thanks.

    Welcome from yet another Californian. You have a fun town, used to play the "Chico Invitational Grass Classic" (grass volleyball) back in the day. This is one of the best forums on the web, in content and delivery.

    Yeah, Sierra Nevada is one of the perks of this little town. I was down in Phoenix a few years ago for a Dolphins/Cardinals Game. Loved the town, but was glad to be home.
