Cool, thanks so much, I'd take good care of it

The fabric is going to be thick and there's no getting around that. I'm making a lion suit.

Do they make special Teflon coated needles or something to ease working with thicker fabrics? If not, someone quickly get the patent on that and give me 10%. Aww hell, I'll take 5%.

You could try a little Teflon spray?

I dunno, I'm just thinking out loud here.
