So Sew Easy has a huge audience in Canada, which represents our third largest market after the US and the UK.  We’re read by almost 40,000 followers each month in Canada and we’re so happy that this reporter is one of them.

    Thank you for this article and the earlier article on male sewists. My youngest son started sewing with me when he was about 5. He even asked Santa for his own sewing machine for Christmas when he was 6! Unfortunately, when he entered those awkward teenage years, he quit sewing because of stereotypes and peer pressure. Now that he’s 18, about to go off to college, and a lot more self confident, I’ve Caught him in the sewing room playing around a bit. I’m hoping that these two articles will convince him that male sewists are awesome!
