    Smile newbie here

    Hey All. I just wandered over from the Backpacker's forum. I am new to hammocks. I am a very profficent seamster, so I am currently sewing my own. Not to save money, but for the fun of it. I'll hit different threads, but wanted to say hi. HI!

    hey there! sewing your own gear is both rewarding and fun isnt it?
    you'll find plenty of projects from DIY down underquilts to catenary cut tarps. there is some very useful info on many of the DIY projects in the Directions threads.

    Welcome!

    Word to the wise though. In an effort to bolster our masculine self-image threatened somewhat by having the ladies at JoAnne's know us so well that that call us by our first names...in fact when Dutch hits a JoAnne's they let him know when bra hooks are on sale....we prefer to call ourselves Thread Injectors. Has a more macho sound to it. Does not keep our wives from asking us to do a little thread injecting to make lacy curtains though.

    Gee, have you come to the right place. This place will keep you injecting thread for quite some time.
