    Fearless Experimentation | Episode 29

    Threads Digital Ambassador Becky Fulgoni muses about design experimentation—planning, testing, and executing beautifully made garments, without stress or anxiety—in the Sewing With Threads video podcast, Episode 29.
    Becky is tall—6 feet tall—and has been sewing since childhood, when she realized she'd never find ready-to-wear clothes to fit her lanky frame. She talks about learning to sew with her mother and eventually moving on to a career in costume construction. She credits her training in the theater with teaching her to sew quickly and to think analytically about the engineering aspects of garment construction.

Bravo!!

I really enjoy this new podcast from Threads. The variety of guests are very knowledgeable and entertaining and I am learning something from them all the time. The format of this show is very professional and with just enough interaction from the hosts to allow the guests to speak and shear their knowledge.
Great job Threads!!
