I think most people would be impressed! Sewing is not limited to just women. Some of the best designers are men... and all of them can sew.

I think that it is cool. It shows creativity and that he has a sense of himself. He is self-secure and not afraid to look less masculine. Be proud of who he is and what he likes to do.

That's awesome that he is self sufficient. NO WAY would I be embarrassed. I would have him teach her how to sew.

The only my dad new how to do ( before my mom died) was make grilled cheese sandwiches... More

No if i had an active dad I would be very proud of the fact that he could sew that doesn't make him gay it just makes him cool. My mom can't sew well so if something rips i have to take them to my grandmother.

Answered By: Shannon - 12/16/2007
No, not in the least. My dad uses a sewing machine too. When I was in high school, he sewed his own seat covers for his truck and made them out of a bunch of his old blue jeans. He didn't have the money to go buy any and had a bunch of old pants he wasn't using so made use of them. My friends thought that the seat... More

No. It just means he is trying to do things one his own.

My grandfather could sew (and actually spent part of his WWI enlistment sewing airplane wings); my father could sew; my husband can sew. And my MIG welding teacher prefers that his students know how to sew, as it makes the transition to the techniques of welding easier -- you can already use hands and feet together... More
