    I'm "sew" excited!!!! My husband just asked me to teach him how to sew, so that he could make a scrappy quilt. I told him sure, but I will have to buy a new machine because I only have one. What do you think? Was that a good response? LOL! I will post pics if I get a new machine...LOL!

    Great answer because you dont want a newbie on your good machine....or you want the newbie on your old machine so you can buy a new machine...either way a new machine is needed!

    Sounds like a good trade off to me. He learns to sew and you get a new machine.

    Also, he'll totally understand needing a new machine. After all, every time my husband undertakes a new project a trip to the hardware store for a new tool is required!

    or - get him a Singer 15, or 66 or 201 - he can't hurt it... and it would work great for him (my DH made his first quilt on a 15)

    Sounds like a great guy you have. Of course, he needs his OWN machine. LOL

    I would get him hooked first, and then he would see the need for a new machine on his own. (It always seems to work out better when they think it's their idea.) ;-)

    Lucky you! My husband does know some basic sewing, but he leaves most of it to me. He is very appreciative of the things I make and supportive of my quilting, so I feel very blessed to have him around.

    My first thought was he asked you to Mend something! LOL This is better. Although you may be sorry.....

    My last wish would be for my DH to ask me that! I would tell him to go sign up for a beginner quilt class and then we could talk about separate sewing rooms. LOL

    My gosh, if my husband asked me to teach him to sew I think I'd fall over from shock. I hope he enjoys spending time with you doing something you love. And what's better than buying a new machine! Just think, now you'll be hitting the fabric shops with a whole new prospective. I envy you. Would love for my DH to become more interested in my love of quilting.

    That's great that he wants to learn to sew.

    Hmmm I think you need a Feather weight or Singer 301. LOL My DH sews on a Singer 301 vintage machine.
