Static

It sure is a PAIN trying to line up two, three or four layers of ripstop nylon and have static between them!!! :evil: :evil:
What do some of you other sewers do to help stop it from happening?

I use spray anti-static product. Ummm, Static Guard, maybe? I don't have the can in front of me. :oops:

Some people like the static when it makes the ripstop cling to the work surface.

Me, I hate it when I try to throw a scrap into the scrap bin. It clings to my hand acting somewhat like a yo-yo. When it does come off my hand it will jump back out of the scrap bin. :shock:

Thanks Al,
Sounds like a plan, will give it a try. I prefer to tape my RSN down to the table too.

Anti-static dryer sheets work to an extent too. Not as well as the spray though. Rubbing them used or new on the fabric or table helps some.
TTFN,
