This weekend was our monthly fabric weekend. This is where we open up our packages of fabrics, webbing, and cordage from Dutchware Gear and RipstopbytheRoll, inventory items and refill project bins. Then we drive up to Seattle and pick up specialty fabrics from Seattle Fabrics and Pacific Fabrics that are only sold locally. Plus, we make an entire day of this by finding new restaurants we haven’t tried and a rock climbing session at Momentum – SODO.
We spend Sunday in a research and development mode, prepping for different projects and brainstorming new ideas or advancements. We play around building different prototypes and experiment with different gear ideas. I’ll post some of our newer projects in the next few days which include a stuff sack pillow and ultralight chalk bag.
