    Hi all. This is Country1's husband. Of late, I've made a few postings of my own using Miss Penny's membership. We joked about me registering myself so I don't have to explain each time who I am. My interest is in vintage and antique machines mostly, which make me happy by virtue of their complexity, machining expertise and paint schemes. I actually sew very little, but grew up with Momma sewing for Daddy, herself, my sister and me all through the 60's and 70's. She wore out two machines I remember, and had one of the first Singer Athena 2000's to hit Louisville, KY back in the very early 70's.....$900 as I recall, when a VW bug could be bought new for $2000. I remember the sights, scents and sounds of Momma crafting away, and often went to the fabric stores with her when I wasn't with Daddy at the hardware or shooting range. I used to love touching the fabrics, and stood in awe of the Coats and Clark thread cabinet. My grandfather and step grandmother together hand quilted daily when he retired from farming, so men a-quilting is normal to me also. Interestingly, on one Ruger gun owner forum a few weeks back, I posted a question asking about other hobbies members have. I shared that I love sewing machines, which brought out a lively, lengthy thread wherein many other men talked about their machines and enthusiasm for the craft!
    I would not be a frequent poster, but also don't want to use up bandwidth others may need. My name on several shooting sport enthusiast forums is Tallbald, as well as on leather crafting forums. Thoughts appreciated. Don

    Yes, you should register as well. There is a whole section on vintage machines. Then we would know right away it was you and you would not have to give the intro stuff each time and get right to the discussion (smile). I vote yes, register (IMHO).
