    I always like to sew and watched my mother sewing every since I can remember. She still uses antique Singer Sewing Machine, even now it's very popular in my culture. The machines is very heavy duty, great for sewing moose hide and much more. A lot of my people (Dene) use caribou hide to make homemade gloves, jackets, sell for themselves. It's always been part of my heritage and I'm very proud of where I come from.
    I'm native from NWT near Yellowknife, I was born in a small town call Fort Rae 41 years ago. I have Kenmore machine 158.17740 and an odd sewing machine call Regent, manufacture in Japan. I don't know much about the Regent machine, but anyone who knows about these two machines, etc manual book much appreciated.

    Hi and welcome from Alaska. I admire anyone who can do moose hide and any other heavy duty sewing. Sewing is my life and has been a part of it for over 55 years. I can do other handwork but I always come back to sewing and now quilting is my favorite.

    Hello, and welcome from southeastern Michigan! 8-) I'm so glad you joined us!! You are really going to love it on this board!! The biggest problem I have noticed is that once I start reading the postings, I can't seem to stop!!! :lol: I would love to know more about your culture. I teach Geography and History classes (among other things :wink: ), and I just know my students would find your life so interesting!! If you would care to share a bit more about you and/or your culture, please send me a PM! I would love to hear from you!!! :thumbup:

    Welcome from NY, Kriskris!

    I'm sure we'd all love to see pictures of the traditional crafts made in your area. The folks on the board here are interested in anything handmade, not only quilts. (And it gives us a chance to broaden our horizons and learn something new!)
