After looking on zen stoves I have realized that there is probably more info there than i will ever be able to read. It is an awesome site and i know i will be able to find what i'm looking for there (thanks to whoever suggested it).
Now i am trying to undertake my next DIY project...sewing. I am about as unexperienced as you can be, except for a random button here and there, i have never sewed. So, with that in mind, i am going to start sewing stuff sacks and hopefully be able to make a backpack someday......with a lot of luck. That being said, i am hoping that somebody out there knows a place that i can download and/or buy patterns for things like stuff sacks, backpacks, clothes, etc. Any opinions and websites will be helpful.
Also, i have been looking but haven't found a site about sewing techniques and know-how. if anybody has that let me know about it too.
Thanks so much to everyone who chimes in you have no idea how much this will help me!
