    NOOB in NC....

    Hey guys just wanted to introduce myself... Originally from San Diego... Currently in central, NC.... I've always been a ground dweller, but I want to start making more of my gear, so I'm moving up in the world... Plan to be hangin' this spring... I currently use a 1956 General Model 15 (Singer 15 clone) "thread injector"(best name for a sewing machine ever!).... I look forward to the wealth of knowledge I'm about to glean from the community, especially you DIY folks!

    Welcome aboard from up the road a ways, lots of great information in the DIY section and before you know it you'll have projects everywhere.

    Get organized early, is my advice to you.

    Welcome, wayniac!

    I have yet to sew a straight stitch and my workbench was wrecked by a run-away car ... but DIY is fun and there are true experts here. You've come to the right place.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    I spend a lot of time at Raven Rock... Truly a gem in this state....
