    Sil-Poly Tarp

    I will venturing into a DIY project this weekend making 2 sil-poly tarps. Is there a special size needle needed for this?

    Try #10 or #12 Schmetz Microtex. I bought #11 Schmetz quilting needles and also #11 Schmetz Universal needles extra for this purpose but have not tried it yet. I will sew my silnylon tarp with Mara 70 or Tera 80.

    Well I made tarps for my hubby & I this weekend. Pics to follow when I can hang them. It's raining right now & I don't feel like getting wet right now.
    It's not about the destination but about the journey.

    Just take the picture from UNDER the tarp. It should be dry there. Right?

    Looking forward to the pictures.

    On my "to do" list. Have the materials and desire but not the time right now.

    Ha ha. True. But I still have to go out to set it up. It's a lounge around the house kind of day. Pics to come this week.

    Here's a corner. I added linelocks via lashit and Lawson glow line for my guy lines.
