    Very cool!! The description of White sounds like my DH...6'2", 280. He makes beautiful quilts mostly as gifts. We have a couple of men in our quilt guild. This is not "Ladies Only" any more!! Glad to see it!!

    If we were to go back on the road, I'd for sure have a sewing machine with me!
    It's a possibility! I kinda miss the road...

    I did have a sewing machine while on the road. It saves your sanity while waiting on loads. Some days I miss being on the road, until i think of snow in the mountains, then I'm glad I'm home.
