Vendors and sources / Re: Hipster fabrics and hardware

Reviving this old topic... Check out Ohio Travel Bag. http://www.ohiotravelbag.com/  You can make an account and they'll send you the catalog and pricing. They have an absolutely massive catalog of this exact type of hardware that you're looking for. They're also a good source for YKK stuff especially if you need a less-than-cartonloads of zipper tape or pulls in every size and shape you can imagine.

Most of mine is gently folded to avoid too many folds and stacked right now as well.

Iíll check the local JoAnn tomorrow and see what they have. Thanks guys!

Asset exchange / WTB: Cardboard tubes for fabric storage
« on: November 07, 2017, 05:02:14 PM »
I'm merely a hobbyist at this stuff so a lot of material I've collected are shorter cuts of fabric from eBay and elsewhere (Most < 10yds) and shipped to me folded. I'm looking to store them properly on rolls. Outside of buying a caseload from Uline, I only found one carbon fiber supply shop selling 62" 1.75" dia tubes for $1.75/ea. About double that price when shipping is considered.

Is this about the best I can do or are there better sources for such items?

Thanks all!

Welcome! Whereabouts in Ohio are you located? I'm just between Columbus and Dayton. Always enjoy networking within Ohio. Glad you joined the forum!

We moved to Columbus from the Cleveland area this past spring. I do wish there was some sort of proper sewing supply store anywhere within a 100 mile radius!

How do you like the area? We are going to move about 45 minutes northeast of Columbus.

Columbus is great. Lots to do... good bike paths, good places to eat, very diverse cultural mix, easy airport to get in and our of, you name it. Once you're outside of the metro area it gets rural pretty quick.

Web presence / Re: Photo hosting location?

Agreed on Imgur. Very easy to use, no-nonsense way of hosting images. I use it for every forum where I have to provide my own hosting of images.

Thanks all! There's something very satisfying about creating something with your hands that makes someone else's life easier or more enjoyable. Be it mission critical gear or simply an overbuilt grocery tote.

Hi all, I'm David. I got into making my own gear in high school when I was broke and couldn't afford the camera bags I saw in catalogs. Started making my own out of canvas on an old Kenmore home sewing machine. I work in the film industry and have found that designing and making gear is an excellent mental escape from sitting in front of a computer all day. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to this forum and the others that came before it in helping me figure out this hobby and constantly evolve my skills. I look forward to contributing what knowledge I can to help further this community!

Here is a work-in-progress of a tote bag I made for a coworker. Multicam Black Cordura with a 1050D ballistic nylon base. Interior lining is RSBTR's HyperD 300 diamond grid polyester ripstop.
