Re: Edge Binding Vs Hemming

I noticed the talk of using bias tape. Unless you can get 100% poly don't use 50-50 cotton / poly. Just like using cotton thread when it gets wet and dry's it shrinks. Stay with .75 or 1.5 oz x 1" or how ever wide you may want your edge binding. I hand fold mine as I'm sewing it on. Another rea...

Re: Spring Club Fly

IM O we should try a camp fly. Terre Andre is a greta place on lake Michigan. They do have a group camp site but the individual sites go real quick. Mostly FIBS. Also there is Bong, I've been there with the Sky Liners in the past. Not the greatest flying area, but, camping is pretty much available m...

Re: Hot Tacking

Babbman,

Sometimes when the materials are too thin place a sheet or tw or three of paper either on top or bottom of the sewing project. This thickens it up and can be ripped off later`

Re: Hi From England

Ian,

Don't listen to your wife. You can never have too many kites, even if they are multi line. Welcome to IKE. It's a good group with an even. Even if they are Illinois based. You need to be from the Midwest to understand what I just said

Re: Hot Tacking

If and when I hot tack I only hit the material about 3 time and thats when I start to sew. I never go down the whole piece that I'm sewing. Ken Mcneil gave me a hint when your needle gets gummed up, use a piece of heavy dacron and punch it a couple of times with your needle. It's worked for me. Carr...

Re: No Wind Steerable SLK

that's funny that you posted it today, I reviewed it a few times myself this morning. It looks interesting and pretty easy to make, the plan is excellent, very detailed. I would love to make one now but I have other things to do first. Let me know how it works out for you.

The first time I tried dog staking some yahoo walks by and tells me what an idiot I was because that was the wrong way to fly a stunt kite.
