    Oh yes JCY, both my boys learned how to cook, clean iron and do laundry! I wanted them to be good husbands and able to take care of themselves if need be. They weren't too interested in sewing though and to be honest, I didn't sew then. Too busy working and raising kids! Lol

So, I decided - no bucket list - just do it. I got the machine and looked online for instructions. I found Jenny. That, as they say, was that! ALL I do now at home is either sew or cut and/or watch tutorials. It is GREAT. I'm making a lot of bags for the various women in my life and it is awesome. To say I love it is so weak. Anyway, that is how I got here - basically. Thanks for asking. You?
    I have a friend that had started quilting with a friend of hers,they were taking classes and asked if I would like to go along so I did.The first three quilts were made all by hand.The instructor was from Holland and didn't believe in sewing machines,so everything was hand cut from templates that I cut out of plastic and then hand sewn and quilted.

    Well I'm glad you asked Peter. And I'm glad you got the right answers from the forum and no one was snarky or rude to you. We try to be friendly and most times we are. So welcome and hope you can come to a retreat one day. In the meantime, the forum is a great place. I hope to read more of your posts and see your great bags and projects.

    My dad was a great sewer. He used to sew all our Barbie clothes and we loved them. Who else could have matching Barbie & me clothes? lol

    Anyways, welcome Peter.

    My husband is also a quilter. We belong to an online quilting retreat group. It's not Jenny (hope to do a retreat there) but we travel once a year, usually in the fall, to different states for a retreat. My husband goes and has been well accepted. I am sure that once the have accommodations for couples you will be able to come. Hang in there and do keep on quilting. This year we are going to Florida. We have people from Arizona, Texas, Alabama, California, Wisconsin and the northeast states. It is a fun hobby.
