I've got some pieces of several other colors (tan, navy, purple, jade, etc) – just tell us what color and size and some one will be able to help you out.Mar 4, 2010 at 10:51 am #1581674

So people have scraps, sure, but where can you get it by the yard? I'd love a few yards of itMar 4, 2010 at 11:10 am #1581678
and about a million more places

Tim, Ben and Marc – Thanks for your kind offer of scraps! Seriously!
I have about six 2 1/2 inch cuts in a Golite green poncho I need to patch.
It's my own fault – I bought the poncho used here, but had forgotten about it when I got this odd squishy package. I slit the package open, and discovered that I had just sliced through a half dozen layers of my new poncho!
Any colors would be fine – in fact, a multi-colored set of patches would have a certain panache, eh?!
PMs will be sent!
Thanks also for the on-line stores – I will bookmark them for future stupidities!Mar 4, 2010 at 12:15 pm #1581719
Ben, I couldn't PM you, but if you PM me, I'd be glad to give you my address! Thanks!Mar 4, 2010 at 12:54 pm #1581745
i recommend the method of laminating sil that was recently and article on BPL by Jim C. I did that on his suggestion for mid panel tie-outs a few years back and it worked great. It would be a great way to patch the poncho without sewing. You could glue the patches on from the inside so on the outside it was less noticeable.

Exactly what I was planning!
In fact, it was the laminating article that got me thinking of this.
Thanks!Mar 12, 2010 at 2:09 pm #1585773
Marc and Tim, thanks for the silnylon – between the two of you, I'm sure I have enough for the job!
Tim, you are a hoot! As soon as I saw the box, I started laughing! "NO KNIVES!!!" LOL!!! With all you sent me, I'm sure I have enough patch material for the next 20 years! Thanks, buddy!
Once I get the patching done – which may not be for a month – my weekends are all taken – I'll post a photo of my poncho of many colors!
Thanks again, guys!
