Note: The term denier refers to the fiber thickness of individual threads or filaments used in the creation of textiles and fabrics. Fabrics with a high denier count tend to be thick, sturdy and durable.
The quality of these flags once completed are amazing. The only issue we had with our kit was the marking on the blue material was so light it was hard to see and couple pieces nonexistent. Would recommend this kit for anyone who wants a family heirloom quality set of flags.

Ahoy from Sea Scout Ship #911, Response I volunteer with Sea Scouts here in central Texas and am making the set of code flags from Sailrite Kit #421A. I started with "Q", then "K", and "I" so I could be sure to have my technique down pat before moving on to the more complicated ones. So far, so good. The materials are of good quality (as I have learned to expect from Sailrite) and the instructions are good enough for me as I have been sewing for over 50 years. Our high school aged Sea Scouts with little to no sewing experience would really benefit from one of your great training videos. I'm enjoying the project and memorizing the code flags as I cut out and sew each one. My question is how to organize them......do you have a pattern to make a roll-up storage container with pockets? For now I'm just using one of those over the door shoe pocket thingies found at stores like Walmart, etc. I'm trying to teach the kids how to be more self-sufficient and "Scout Prepared" by making their own boat covers and doing sail repairs. Any chance that Sailrite would offer Sea Scouts a discount for supplies and scraps to practice on? Never hurts to ask.....right? Fair Winds, Sea Scout Ship #911, Response Georgetown, Texas
