Meet Glenn, a quilter. He was demonstrating at the Lake Itasca Pioneer Farmers Show. I asked him if I could take his photo, he said sure, fire away!
I asked him why he picked quilting as a hobby, he replied “I retired and my wife said I had to have some kind of hobby, and I figured quilting was for me. I love it. Of course I have streamlined the process, and I can put together a quilt in a day or two, this one will be finished by the end of the show this weekend.” I asked him about his sewing machine, I said it must be the best operating sewing machine around. He replied “I oil it every three or four quilts.”
I was very impressed with his sewing skills, I was also very impressed that a man would find great satisfaction in a hobby that is predominately female, and be comfortable enough in his own skin to demonstrate those skills:)
