    My ex SIL got me into quilting! He wanted to make my daughter a quilt. So I pieced it and he hand quilted it!! He did a great job. He was a roofer that became dis-abled, but we made some beautiful quilts!!!!!! It is very relaxing!

    3 words for your man : Rosey Grier needlepoint. And, tailoring by men was a noble occupation long before women got paid for doing it.

    To me there are no sex related hobbies, if you want to do something then do it. If any one claims they are not "real" men because they quilt they are probably jealous because they can't do it. Tell him to go for it.

    My ex would have been a great quilter, he sewed better than I do! ( and never hesitated to remind me!)

    Men should be advised that a sewing machine is very similar to a jigsaw. The blade is like the needle, so guiding and following the lines is the same concept. Both have variable speed motors. And I have never heard of anyone who sewed thru the power cord!

    My Dad used to crochet. He also sewed. No one ever called him sissy, let me tell you. He loved it. Convince your hubby and I'm sure he will have bragging rights before he knows it.

    I just returned from new owners classes on my Innova quilting system. The shop owners, Teryl and John McKnight both quilt. John told me that when he started quilting, the stash MORE than doubled! She uses more room with all her machines, and John pieces on a Featherweight.
