    I asked dh if he wanted to help do something that he hasn't ever done before.. and he jumped on the offer !
    this is him helping me with us both using the featherweights..

    notice the red ironing table in background? he made that after I showed him the tutorial on tv tray ironing boards.. he loves it so much with his own little red iron to match...

    I wish I could get my husband on board with this. He works for a small quilt company and so never says a word about my stash or sewing on the kitchen table, but I think it would be wonderful if he would start. Especially during the winter when he can't get out to do much.

    I love that you are both using the same type of machines and they are vintage!!! I also think it is wonderful that he is helping you and you know what, you might just create a monster!! Tell him that I am glad we have another guy quilter on the board!!!

    What a great guy ... from yardsticks and thread shelves to featherweights and OBWs!

    When you said something he's never done before .... sewing? or the OBW? Are the two of you having races to see how many each are doing in the same time? Have Fun!

    So cool! Can't wait to see if he decides to design and make a quilt all by himself!

    So neat that so many of you ladies have hubbys that will sew. I think mine would rather die first!

    My SO does not sew with me, but he is great help with color choices and design layout .Sometimes I think he must get tired of me asking "honey what do you think." Plus he builds, makes me anything I ask for in my sewing room. Yesterday he made me thread holders to fit on the machine that hold the cones of thread. So, I'd rather keep him down in his shop. Right now he is working on new cabinets for me.

    How cool is that? My husband was a construction worker and would have been that I finally know what a 1/4 inch is.....He might have built me a studio - at least it's a nice thought. RIP honey....

    I wish I could get my wife on the board LOL!! She has no idea how to sew and I just taught myself how to out of the blue a few years back when I restored my first treadle.
