I enjoy sewing (at a hobby level), but I don't know a lot about selecting "good" fabrics. I'd like to level up from what's available at my big box craft store. Please help. This Ask is specifically about identifying and/or sourcing durable flannel and knits - fabrics that will hold up well to repeated washings, but I welcome information about other fabrics as well.

I want to sing in the car, both because I won't be overheard and because I'll feel happier driving (an activity that I find inherently tense and unpleasant). But, it's difficult for me to find albums whose songs mostly have a manageable vocal range and lyrics that are either familiar or somewhat accessible. What albums have you enjoyed singing along to while you drive? Thanks in advance for any help.
I'm really interested in making films/videos/etc from still images - think Chris Marker's La Jetée. I know a bit about photography but not very much about filmmaking. I've been fiddling around in iMovie for a small project, but I would really appreciate recommendations and advice regarding both technique and technology. [more inside]
I just finished Dragon Age: Inquisition, and I'm bereft. What else is there to play in this vein? [more inside]
I love dancing to 80s (and 90s) music, but with Culture Club now closed, I'm not sure where to go in New York City. Are there any new dance places that are devoted to 80s/90s music, or that have "80s nights"? Thanks!
The Rio Olympics just concluded, and they were great. I'm an Olympics-lover, so any Olympics are fun, but these seemed better than usual, and there is some support for that. So why were these so good? [more inside]
In "Go Fish", is it legal to call for a card one doesn't have?
Just for curiosity's sake is there a list somewhere of the athletes who managed to defend their title at the 2016 Olympics? I haven't been able to find one! [more inside]
I want to do something like "Airplane mode" only for biking. I want to be able to toggle a group of settings every time I go for a bike ride, without having to check each one individually. The goal would be to press one button at the start of the ride and then undo it all at the end. [more inside]
I'm new to swimming and I really like the Total Immersion approach because it breaks down swimming into steps. I bought the Easy Freestyle Swimming DVD, and I'm finding it's a little too fast for me. There are so many TI books, YouTube videos and DVDs I'm not sure where to start. Unfortunately there are no TI coaches anywhere near me. Which TI DVD should I go with?
Is there anywhere I can watch a video of the men's 200m final without having the results spoiled? [more inside]
I have a foldover skirt that has always been too long for my short stature and required multiple foldings to fit me. Well during a closet cleanout, I realized it almost makes a great dress. Almost, details inside. [more inside]
Give me your recipes/recommendations for foods that I can eat over a 2-3 day car camping trip that don't require any cooking or heating as well as minimal washing of dishes or utensils. [more inside]
I find myself in SF for an extended period of time, and am at a loss for places I can be alone each day for an hour or two. [more inside]
I'm hoping to identify a good place to stop and get some exercise/fresh air on our drive from Boston to Portland, Maine. [more inside]
My dad is 70 and wants to play some super easy casual games on PC, iOS, PS4, and possibly Wii or Wii U. Recommendations? [more inside]
My 3-year-old daughter loves the Nerdy Nummies YouTube channel. It's a baking show with a bubbly host who makes a different pop-culture themed treat every week. I like that she is watching a show about a real person making stuff (instead of yet another cartoon), and it even inspires us to do projects in real life. I am looking for recommendations for similar shows, but for other types of projects she would like, such as papercrafts or painting. [more inside]
All the available Olympic medals tables are events won not medals awarded. By this I mean if a country wins a Rowing 8 that is 9 medals (8+cox) not 1 as in the available table, if you win cycle team pursuit that is 4 medals not 1 as in the available table, football? rugby 7s? hockey? I think you get my drift. I know I could do it myself with a pen and paper but maybe somebody out there has found it, done it or has a cleverer way to generate it.
I’m a 30 year old guy who recently broke up with my ex this past April. Since the break-up, I’ve subjugated myself to the gym and playing basketball again after a 2 year hiatus. Exercise has done wonders for me physically and mentally. However, there are also other items that I want to learn: learning how to play the saxophone, how to cook, how to maintain my new car, and etc. [more inside]
In a couple weeks, my friends and I are participating in the R.O.C. race, and we need some kind of group costume! Something easy to put together, that we can still run around and get wet and muddy in. Any ideas? We'll be 7 or 8 people, in our 30s if it matters. Running in NYC in September, so it will still probably be a million degrees outside. [more inside]
