    Greetings from up north!

    Thank you for the compliments. I cannot help myself: even though I’ve no artisans in the family or even the funds for supporting or frequenting them, I find myself fascinated by these noble crafts. If these little texts and links help raise interest in my well-off readers, I’ve reached a goal or two.

    Enjoyed the videos of Lobb. Especially the last one with John Hunter Lobb.

    At the 1:07 mark Mr. Lobb says “We have turned our faces against machines and machinery.” What a classic quote and a sentiment that resonates with many bespoke makers around the world.

    I am particularly glad that you included that clip. Thank you.
