    M&D S3E69: Sewing, Quilting and How to Choose the Best Upholstery for You!

    Welcome to the Make and Decorate with Stephanie Socha Design Podcast!

    Today I chat about all the usual suspects of our creative living...sewing, quilting, a little knitting, a little heat transfer vinyl and gardening.

    The main topic is all about Upholstery:  Learn about fabrics, and which ones to choose for upholstery.  Did you ever sit on a sofa that was uncomfortable?  Do you know what to choose when you are looking to buy a new sofa or chair?  I explain the different types of cushions, seat depths and appropriate fabrics for upholstery.  The next time you shop for a sofa or chair, you will have the knowledge to choose the right one for you.

Autwine Quilter

One of my Favorite podcasts. Love the insight on decorating as well as quilting tips. Enjoy hearing about sewing with Ava. The extra tips on podcasts, shows and books are great. I have a notepad ready to jot these down. Love your interviews, especially with Kate, Sophia, Irena Staal and Sew Sweetness. Your voice is great for a podcast. I listen while sewing and walking. Keep it up!!

Chalk Paint

I learned so much about chalk paint from this podcast. I’m wanting to try it on my bathroom cabinets. Thank you so much for all the tips and tricks.

So much knowledge!

I also learned about your podcast from the Off Kilter Quilter. I started listening a few days ago and I can’t stop. You have a great voice and the content is really dense with information. I’m so impressed with your knowledge of so many different machines and I have loved hearing about them. The I enjoy both the interviews and the ones you do alone. I have to go back and listen to some again so I can take notes. Will check out your Patreon (sp?) so I can donate. Thank you Stephanie!!
