Young-Marine-Sketch

Doe & I go way back…some 15 years or so…and she has been sewing forever. We also have a special needs daughter, Cappy, who is 27 and loves to color!

I joined the Marine Corps in ’73 and was what is termed a ‘Hollywood’ Marine, as I was stationed in El Toro, CA.

After my enlistment, I spent most of my life in the restaurant & hospitality business. I’ve owned several restaurants along the way & learned how to sharpen knives when I was 10 yrs old. Later, after started a sharpening business and got involved with local fabric shops.

Somehow, Doe got me interested in the Longarm side of things and now I am also now know as “The Longarm Marine”.
