Super informative and super easy to listen to
Wow! What a great podcast! I’ve been listening for quite a while now and I don’t like to review too soon but I really needed to get behind this one, I’m such a fan I’m also a Patreon supporter!
The guests are great, the research into the topics is obvious and the topics are so varied, there’s something for everyone.
Thanks also so so much for being so conscious
I’ve been a sewist most of my life. Currently I’m a professional quilter but I really want to reignite my clothes sewing mojo. You gals have really inspired me! Not happy with the quality of clothing I can afford to buy ready made - everything has polyester in it! So I’m hoping to fill my wardrobe with gorgeous linens, cotton, wool, rayon and silk!
Tired of feeling drab and ordinary - I want my clothes to be as colourful as my quilts! Thank you thank you thank you!
Love love love!
So happy I found this podcast. I’m a new sewer and don’t have anyone I know who I can ask questions to, so listening to these episodes are really helpful. Helen and Caroline cover so many different topics and the banter is hilarious!
