So I’m embarking on an epic quest that is nearly destined to fail and/or hit major road blocks haha. I’m going to make myself a down quilt, stuff sack, and ground cloth to upgrade my backpacking gear. I placed an order for the down quilt kit here last week and can’t wait to get it and start working away!
I’m just curious as to what thread you all would suggest, if any? when searching on amazon there are a gazillion different 100% polyester threads and I don’t know if one would be better than another or its all just moot. Also, the best needle to use would be a size 9, am I correct?
and of course, any general tips on practicing my sewing skills (or just sewing my bag at all)? I haven’t used a sewing machine in years and definitely need to get some practice in before I start to work with my new gear.
