Hi from the Netherlands
« on: September 17, 2016, 10:51:36 AM »
Hi all,

Really happy i found this place!! I'm Jochem from the Netherlands and I've been running Skunk Gear since 2013. I'm a sports shooter and outdoor enthusiast and I make outdoor and tactical gear. I'm trying to maintain a balance between my regular job as a music producer, designing & sewing and family life. I'm not really good at that :-) ...

Anyway, I started sewing when i bought a 5.xx backback of which some seams ripped after a couple of months of mild use... so i went for it and tried to repair it. First slowly, then quickly, things started to change and i got some sewing jobs. Most of my stuff goes to sports shooters and the military at the moment. I'm spending all my hard earned cash to buy equipment and supplies and i'm very eager to learn "the trade".

I started out with my wife's sewing machine, after that a steel Pfaff 360, sold that and got a Global walking foot. Sold that as well and now i run a Durkopp Adler 767 auto, an Adler 267 dual needle and a Seiko LSC8BV cylinder arm. They rock!! In a couple of months I'll be getting a Brother bartacker and another cylinder arm for assembly. So right now..i'm totally broke haha

I'm in the middle of moving my shop (which was half of our living room in our city apartment) to the garage of the place we're moving to. Finally....room for a cutting table!

I'm not very active on social media, but feel free to follow me on www.facebook.com/SkunkGear

thanx!
Jochem
