    Hello from NY

    Hi, I'm John on Long Island. I'll confess right up front that I don't quilt, but I do sew.
    I owned three older machines, two Pfaffs, a 230 and 332, and a Stradivaro Precision Deluxe, which is a badged Japanese machine from about 1962. I use these machines to makes covers and repair sails for my boat.

    ​Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Nothing like the old machines for heavy duty sewing.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    When I joined I didn't even sew. Just a wrench for my GF. My skills are improving.

    Hi and welcome from North Carolina! There are lots of folks here into vintage sewing machines, so you'll have much to talk about... maybe we might convince you to try your hand at quilting!!

    Welcome from Minnesota, John! My husband started to quilt once he retired and discovered that there are plenty of men who have found quilting to be a creative outlet. You might be tempted by some of their postings here ;o)
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
