    I think I spend my share too, but had to print this article. My DH is retired trucker, I have to show him this. He helps me with color selection and gets a little more involved all the time. Keep telling him he'll be quilting by next year. He even went to and enjoyed the Lancaster quilt show with me last week. He was facinated by the longarms.

    I started saving ALLL my sewing related receipts. If you sell a quilt or two your fabric, threads etc are tax deductible.

    I think this is great. My DH is former long hauler and it is frustrating just waiting aroung. Wish I could have gotten him interested.

    I believe it based on just what I've spent so far having been at this only about 6 months.

    This is one of the cutest articles i have read in a long time. My previous husband was a long haul truck driver too. He lived alone for a long time and learned to sew and iron (from his grandparents) better than any one i knew. This was even before he became a truck driver. Back in the old country it was not considered necessarily a woman's hobby or job. It was more a matter of being able to take care of yourself.
