    Be careful. The sewing can be addicting. My wife inherited some of my mother-in-law’s stuff. If fills like 80% of our storage space

      Football tournaments. You'll have football tournaments. Just because you're surrounded by colonial peasants, doesn't mean you have to use their unintelligible tongue!

            If this is just to help you design stuff it makes sense but if your wanting to make stuff to sell ... I dont see how this would be very profitable

                  Remember Alec, those machines aren't like a simple hammer, you gotta maintain those things or they will make you hate yourself (boyfriend worked in a repair shop for a couple years).

                        I kinda love this. I also picked up an interest in learning to sew after finding my mom's old Sears Kenmore machine in the garage.

                                    I had my start in garment making when I was 18 and it led me into full time leatherwork 7 years later. It's hilarious watching you tackle fabric and sewing machines. You're going to do an awesome job of it Alec. Keep on learning

                                        GASP!!! You mean you're actually going to start making some kind of product after all this time? I mean it's not like you've been in the country for like a year now, spending that time for the most part seemingly gathering tools and making dungeon-like furniture for your bedroom... along with the bromance with Will (amazed he let you have enough time away to meet a girl). TBH I miss the shop across the pond and the activities there... where it was YOU doing your own stuff.

                                        I mean, sorry, but I'm just not a Will fan. I was excited for you when you said you were moving country, but then all of a sudden it was nothing but "Here, watch Will do this because I'm not around.". I didn't subscribe to this channel to watch Will. Not impressed.

                                          Will it be added onto your original site?

                                              You should look into getting a t-shirt printer. Then you can source your own blank tees and print and ship them yourself.

                                              Best part is that if you print your own you would not need to keep a massive inventory of each print just inventory of colours and sizes then print on demand.

Use two different colored threads when adjusting the tension, so you can see very easily which thread is tighter and which is looser. Late but that's my 2 cents worth.

My overactive brain has me constantly wanting to just try new things I’ve never tried and oftentimes know very little about doing. Over my 40 years I’ve developed quite the jack of all trades experience learning everything from gun smithing to forging blades, making kydex sheathes and now I’m developing an interest in armor making. Definitely envious of your workshop, I work on a 10x10 slab outside on my patio but my macguyver tactics make it work for the time being 😜

Looks like you’re having lots of fun which is great for making heavy work a little lighter. Found your channel through Warrior Poet. What’s your advice for someone starting a “maker” business (woodworking)? Thanks for the videos. Can’t wait to see more 👍👍
