Men who sew, and sexism in the sewing community

Deanna from Sew McCool usually writes blog posts with sewing inspiration and tutorials. But her post about men who sew has grabbed my attention more than any other post she has written.  In it, she examines the sexism that exists toward men in our sewing community, including how our sewing groups can be unwelcoming and how even our sewing humor tends to reinforce these stereotypes.  Her article includes interviews with several well known male sewists.  Go to Sew McCool to read her article.
