Making Your Own Sails

If you look under "Sail Repair- sewing machines" (last post 08-13-03) in Gear & Maintenance, you''ll see a lot of discussion about sewing machines. I think the gist is that a proper choice of needle and a heavier fly-wheel will help your machine punch throught the layers of fabric.
