    WOW, that applique was great, and the needle that man was using looked like a nail, it was huge.

    Incredible! And even more so when you realize that if he's making tents, that he is working with heavy canvas, not nice, thin, pliable cotton! He must have hands of steel!

    Neat video. I think his big thumb was a great tool in folding and holding the fabric as he sewed. That's my theory and I'm stickin' to it.
