This probably sounds dumb, but what kind of sewing machine do you use. I've had an interest messing around with canvas sewing.Married to my high school sweetheart at 21 and graduated vocational school in electronics. Had TV repair business at 21, self taught. Landed a job with GM as a technician working for the Delco Electronics division at 25. While at Delco went to college and got my Engineering degree. Left Delco after 10 years and lost everything from my pension due to their bankruptcy. Found my current job with Panasonic working as an Engineering Manager and I love this company. My retirement is delayed but I want to keep working another 10 years. Need to stay active. I did learn marine upholstery and canvas about 6 years ago and have a shop to play. This will be my post retirement extra income.
