I would definately introduce him to the process. I found that men love to cut fabric with a rotary cutter. I guess its the tool thing. They are not so big on the ironing part .. LOL. But by all means let hime play with the tools, he will take the steps he wants to take . It might be a good idea to sign him up for a class ,,, men are really popular in classes... and it starts to give him his own "quilting identity".
