    Keeping a Sewing Journal with Meg from Meg Made Sewing // EP47

    Keeping a Sewing Journal with Meg from Meg Made Sewing // EP47

    How does paper play into your sewing projects?


    Do you plan what you're making in advance in a notebook? Sketch your ideas for a great new garment? Keep track of your measurements and pattern modifications with sticky notes? Or, maybe do none of these at all? This week on the Maker Style Podcast we've got Meg from @megmadesewing on the show to share the ins and outs of her SEWING JOURNAL - a paper place where she keeps all of her sewing notes, ideas, and projects! As someone that doesn't have a real paper component to my sewing practice, I was so inspired to hear how Meg keeps track of her ideas - and I've been brainstorming on little ways I could implement a sewing journal of my own ever since! Click the link in my bio to give this episode a listen, or find us wherever you listen to podcasts. Find Meg: https://instagram.com/megmadesewing?igshid=19r942jg9d8dk

Great content fun host

She’s a delight to listen to. She crafts great content and themes. Her energy is inspiring. She says a few words too much “like” “awesome “. But it’s easy to overlook because of her energy and enthusiasm.

poor sound quality

These would be great if the sound wouldn't drop down so much in the interviews. The intro is great. I want to hear what the person being interviewed has to say, but need to turn up the volume to full blast (30-50 on my car speakers) when the interview starts. Even then the voices are garbled and I can't understand what is being said.

This is so disappointing!
