    I actually do sew (a lot!) but can't say I'd ever knit or crochet, hahaaa!

    but it's a manly industrial machine that I use mostly and the bar tacker machine, so there...

    Y'all can laugh, but I used to knit and embroider, when I was a kid. Still can embroider, but for the life of me can't remember how to knit. Keep telling myself to relearn.

    As for all you guys that are too macho to sew, whacha gonna do when something rips and the wife ain't around? It's like a gal being to feminine to know how to put gas in the tank or air in the tires.

    Oh I kin sew but it don't look that purty. Kinds like a loop stitch going round and round until you get to the end.

    My father is an upholsterer and I grew up sewing. I can mend (see, proper terminology) a bottom, and I can mend a leather holster except I don't have any leather stuff. My father has all that. Hey Alpo, I just wanted to make you all laugh and I am sure you did.:D

    I do find it easier to do the sewing that I need instead of asking her to do it. I made a "fits all" boat cover fit perfectly, shortened a few lab coats for at work, put pleats in pants so they fit me, and I am getting ready to make my own rifle sling.
