    Gear-Making Instructional Video Series

    I have completed the We Don't Sew... We Make Gear! series and have added the Zipper video to the collection. In terms of generic techniques or broad based tutorials is there anything else people think would be helpful for the forums? I have been having a lot of fun with these.

    1. Intro

    2. Meet the Beast

    3. K.I.S.S

    4. Behind the Mysteries

    5. Making it Real

    6. Troubleshooting

    7. The Floor Ain't Big Enuf


    8. Hang in Under an Hour

    9. Tarp Tips

    10. Make it Your Own

    11. After Thought

    ..and two more companion videos...

    Perfect Zipper Installation

    Gathered Round Bottom Stuff Sack
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    ah, video-making withdrawal begins to wrap its tentacles around you. "What am I going to do with myself now???" Seeing any pink elephants? <grin>

    seriously though, this was a herculean effort with great benefit to the budding DIYer. Despite the miles of thread I've injected, I picked up some tips myself!

    I would also like to express thanks for your efforts in making the whole series. I've learned quite a lot from it.

    Thanks for the kind words. I am between jobs at the moment. So I have time. If I can use it productively so much the better. I am sure there are other things that could be included, I'm just not sure what they would be.

    Thanks for the lessons on sewing

    I enjoy learning from your videos, they have been a lot of help and entertainment. I have dusted off my sewing machine and oiled her up. Just waiting on supplies to come in for my first UQ. Thanks

    Thanks Rev!
    With all the DIY projects here, I was thinking I ought to go back and try sewing again.
    I did a few camping projects 20 yrs ago, but after I ran the needle from the machine through my finger, I figure it was too dangerous. That machine just scares me. (although I have no problems using a table saw, bandsaw, router, or any number of other sharp woodworking tools. Go figure.)
    Not all who wander are lost.
