James shares his methods of finding fabrics, finding patterns and sewing techniques. There are also the stereotypical responses James has endured as a man buying fabric from a retail store. He now buys his fabrics online as a less negative way to source the fabric he wants to use.

James shares the ways men are not included in the sewing conversations and men do sew and should be included in online discussions.
