Proud of you, Don. The tailor I apprenticed under made suits for kings and famous diplomats and I felt so honored while studying under him. He always told me that tailoring and sewing as well would be lost arts if we didn't pass on the knowledge. He was a fine man, a great tailor as well as a fantastic human being. He only used a couple of vintage machines as the majority of his suits were done by hand. Men that can't handle doing 'women things' are just jealous that they aren't man enough to do whatever they want. And, being a woman that can handle a saw or hammer drill, I feel the same way for women doing whatever they want.
