    Does your hubby also sew or quilt? If so does he have his own sewing machines?

    NO!! I keep showing him all our male quilters and the work they have done. He has no interest in doing it himself but is very supportive of my quilting!!

    No, but he is quite a talented artist, although he doesn't get much time to paint as he would like!

    Hugs

    No mine's not going to sew - doesn't have the patience. But he did help sew on the binding to his quilt (once). And I did get him to make a yo yo. Just one yo yo! He does like shopping for fabric with me.

    My huby doesn't sew or quilt but he's a good egg about all my sewing and quilty whims. He is really good with a seam ripper and he's really good at making gadgets that make my sewing easier. He made me a ruler holder, and a cone thread holder and a few other things.

    Does my hubby know how to sew? Yes. And in his lonely bachelor days (as he likes to call them) he sewed himself some blue plaid pillows for his couch, on an old machine his mom loaned him. But he only sewed then on a need-to-have-it basis.

    Does he sew now? Not at all. When he needs something now, he asks me to make it for him. He did help me rotary cut some quilt blocks once when I was crunched for time.

    No...but he cuts all my fabric into fat quarters, cuts all my blocks, puts together my Cathedral Window kits, irons the fusible web to the fabric, cuts about 50% of my appliques (my mother does alot too), helps me gather fabric when I go to Marshall Dry Goods and anything else I need help doing. He even does house cleaning but he won't cook. :lol: He's a keeper. :thumbup:
    Well you did ask!!! LMAO! :wink:

    I don't want him to sew or quilt! Quilting is my separate time for me, not me being always the wife or mom. He can find something else to do, I started quilting first.

    Mine doesn't sew, and likely never will. He does however, provide me with advice. Hummm... sometimes I want it, and sometimes I don't.

    LOL!

    My husband doesn't sew or quilt, and I don't forsee him ever doing it. But, he doesn't mind looking at fabrics and quilt patterns with me, and he even helps me choose sometimes. A couple of nights ago, he asked me if I would make him a patriotic quilt (his BD is fourth of July) and I said sure. I asked him if there was a specific pattern he wants, and he said he'd like me to show him some of the patterns I like and think I can do, and he'll choose. Well, last night I was showing him magazines, patterns and some free patterns online, and there was one for a table runner(to be adapted of course) that he liked, then he said he wants to change the design on it though. So he presented me with a design of the quilt he'd like me to make for him :) Merit of story, I guess he likes to design quilts, and I think he'll be really good at it.

    DH appreciates sewing, quilting, etc. His mother did all of this when she was alive, but he has stated that he just does not have the patience to even attempt this.

    He sounds like a keeper. Mine is also a keeper. Doesn't sew but is very supportive of all my hobbies from sewing to horses. I am even lucky enough to not have a job!

    No, but he builds me things for my quilting. So far he has made both my SIL and me an extension table, a PVC frame for quilting, and he made the proper insert for my new machine to fit in an old sewing desk. I didn't want any hinges put onto my machine to drop it down.

    He is very supportive of my hobbies.

    LOL, my DH won't even sew a button on his shirt. (Nor will I do it for him!) but he is very supportive of my hobby. When I got my first embroidery machine, he was fascinated by it, but would not let me teach him to use it. (Between us, I think he feels like *real* men don't sew) Please...no one take offense.

    My husband can sew, quilt, & latch hook. He can also fix the plumbing, rebuild a diesel engine, operate heavy equipment, and mount & balance a tire for my 4X4. He's also a darn good cook. He really doesn't need me for much at all... but he sure does love me!!! =)

    Edited to add: Please don't tell him I shared this with you all. lol
