I would like some advice, I finally got a sewingmachine today, a cheap one, I am not even sure if I can tune the pressure of the lower thread, but that is okay.
I want to make a tent, using ripstop.
I understand that 'flat felled seams' always work, and straight stitching is efficient too. So I will stick to that. I also understand that polyester tread is wind-, water and timeproof.
My question is, what Size needle should I use? and what Size thread? (and what coulour?)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
