when sewing 1.1oz RS nylon, what size needle do you prefer?
small one like #9?
what kind of thread? what are good stitches for hemming? straight? zigzag?
straight - flat felled seam and french seam are useful in different cases. zigzag for sewing webbing to nylon, but you don't want needle holes too close together, like 1 mm, or it will weaken fabric
do you run the machine fast or slow?
slow - I am a novice
whats your thread tension like?
normal - adjust so top and bottom threads are even like normal sewing
what are your favorite fabrics and why? (cuben/nylon/silnylon, etc)
1.1 oz silnylon 2nds for tarps, 1.1 or 0.9 oz for garments, some day I will do something with cuben but it requires special techniques, 2.5 or 5 oz Apex is pretty good synthetic, I've played with down a little which I used to be afraid of but isn't that difficult and has better warmth per weight
