Hi all- I'm the manager of a small custom sewing shop working in leather and nylon building/repairing custom holsters, luggage, outdoors gear, tactical gear, etc with a life-long interest in parachutes and skydiving and a family history in military parachuting. Nice place you have here :)
Payback, I'll shortly be moving to the York, PA area with my new shop, I understand there are DZ(s) and riggers to apprentice with *hopefully* in the area. We've been working with rappelling harnesses, parapack, cordura and webbing of all sorts for a few years now, so hopefully the sewing aspect will come easily.
Everybody else; Thanks for the warm welcome :) I've only been hampered from jumping so far by those two pesky things called time and money, heh heh. I look forward to learning how to do something I've always wanted to do and to avoid being called "you nasty leg" by my paratrooper father and grandfather.
