Welcome from Canada
« on: May 08, 2018, 06:41:14 PM »
Hi from Ontario! I'm very new to sewing and gearmaking, I've been doing it in my spare time on and off for about a year and a half now. I started off making gear loops and small accessories, and am currently working towards a plate carrier. I find it hard to get milspec materials in-country, so I find I end up spending more time looking for supplies and doing materials research that I do actually sewing, which ultimately led me to this forum as well as leatherworker. Figured it was about time to register.

Most of my skills are in computer drafting, design and 3d-modelling which has transferred well to coming up with ideas for sewing. At my work I have access to a laser cutter which I plan to use for some project down the road.

I currently use a Juki-563 which I bought second-hand and have slowly been tuning and refurbishing. So far I've been doing this mainly as a hobby for myself, modifying gear, or making the occasional piece for a friend.

Welcome from the right end of the country, almost anyway.
