Best Sewing, DIY, women in business Podcast

My absolute favourite podcast, and my favourite sewing podcast. I’ve listened to every episode, and the content is fun, valuable, informative and relevant to the sewing community, diy community and even the “small” business communities. Thanks for all you do, you brighten each and every Tuesday.

Listen to it 8 hours a day for 2 weeks straight

I love this podcast. I took a sewing class recently and loved it so much that I started looking up all things sewing. I don’t know how I ended up stumbling across this podcast but I am so happy I did. I started from episode 1 and have been listening to it ALL day while I work for like two weeks straight now. The ladies are so articulate and kind and uplifting and HELPFUL. I started my first project recently and I feel that their podcast taught me so much and I avoided a lot of beginners mistakes. I am Canadian and also use to live in Vancouver and I find I get so much joy that they are also Canadian!!

Best sewing podcast ever!

I started listening after a long break away from sewing and this podcast has inspired me to continue my sewing journey in so many ways! I have learned a tonne about people to follow and ways to expand my knowledge. My 9 year old son loves to listen to them with me and he started sewing this past summer too, in part because of hearing Helen and Carolyn’s enthusiasm about sewing. Love you girls!
