    My DH knits, does cross-stitch and leadlighting. He would quilt as well but my sewing room is too small for both of us to share.

    He is also very handy with a circular saw and other "manly" things.

    Get your hubby to check out some of the intricate work the guys on this board do. He's bound to be impressed.

    My dad worked with wood for years. I have been quilting for years and my mother took it up about 5 years ago and is a hand quilter. My dad (with no sewing experience) decided he wanted a longarm. He has learned to sew and is good with his quilting. He has a great eye for color and design.
    Here he is with one of his most challenging quilts.

    My DH has been quilting right along side me from the start. He cuts and sews, I design and hand quilt. A perfection partnership, couldn't do it without him!

    don't forget in the past most, if not all, tailers were men. I think men have great eye for precision and detail. The quilts on here made by men are just beautiful. Good luck helping him get started.

    Here in Delaware there was a gentleman quilter who also designed quilts. He started his career in quilting because he wanted to quit smoking. He was also a member of a local biker group. You can do a google search fro him under his quilter name name, Biker Dude or his real name of Butch Meyers. He also had a job at the LQS.

    My Aunt taught me how to tailor garments but it was my Uncle, who installed elevators for a living and had hands like hams, who taught me how to embroider as he was taught by my Grandma.
