I purchased Duluth pack sewing plans and looked them over. The plans all seemed greek to me and will require more understanding and education, but I know someday I will sew some interesting things, however at the moment I am thankful for your warning. I have enough going on right now to not jump into another rabbit hole. Maybe this winter I will sit down with the plans again and try and make some sense of the art of sewing. The last time I ever sewed was in Home Economics class in middle school. I believe I made a horrible pair of Bermuda shorts. Just like Mem said I wouldn't even know how to thread a machine at the moment. Your work is very impressive as are all the other interesting sewing creations on this thread. It is inspiring.
