I've sewn a backpack and tarp (both RayWay from kits) and they turned out decent so I have a little more confidence in my sewing abilities now. However, I'm very confused about fabrics. I can't seem to find one place that describes their differences: pros & cons. Can anybody direct me to a place that will discuss this?
Also, it would really help me if I could actually see the fabrics to know what they look like and how to recognize them. I live in So. Cal. Does anyone know of a place where I can buy them w/o going online? I like to look at what I'm getting.
I'm really motivated to tailor-make my own gear since I'm getting over my 2nd back surgery. Going light is not an option now.
Any help appreciated,
