    Here's the litmus test to see if you are the uber-man: could you (if you HAD to), without hesitation or reserve, bring yourself to call a thread injector a... you know... sewing machine?

    I have to be honest, I have several pieces of ripstop in a hidden place that my wife does'nt know about yet. I am waiting to find a good deal on a vintage rock-solid machine to start making stuff!! Question: Am I wrong to hide this urge for material from my spouse?? Oh well, time will tell.

    My wife had a brand new brother thread injector that was never used up until 2 weeks ago. I actually find it strange that I find it calming when I'm on that thing trying to sew something.

    Now my daughter keeps bugging me when I can make her a dress

    One of the cool things living in Los Angeles (despite the noise and traffic) is that we have a Fabric District downtown. I just scored some 1.9 ripstop for $3.50py and 1.7 ripstop for $3.00py this past weekend

    My addiction to MYOG started with stoves. My current setup right now is a remote fuel fed starlyte knock-off

    I have heard some amazing things about those LA fabric stores/outlets; mostly from my other gang of historical re-enactors...wool, linen, silk..sigh. someday I will get out that way again.

    I went to hancocks last week, picked up some black ripstop, ask the gal at the counter if she get's a lot of guys coming in. She said you'd be surprise at how many come in for various projects etc, and a lot of them were military to boot, myself included!
