This is just what I’ve been looking for.

A couple of years ago the sewing podcast I was hooked on suddenly ended and none of the other ones I listened to measured up. This was such a lonely time.

This podcast is easy to listen to as I putter around in my sewing room. I love that the podcast isn’t interrupted with loud ads. I also love it that you re-cap at the end of each episode. Good information and wonderful patterns on the website. I appreciate not having to join FaceBook in order to participate in the community.

Just listened to your interview with Jenny Doan. I love what she says about taking a class that is something new. It’s such a good way to meet other people and stay amazed.

Just bought a Bernina 720 used, and am learning to sew garments for fun. Love your podcasting information. I’m feeling inspired after listening and am getting past the frightening possibilities of wasting money making mistakes. And!..your formula outfit suggestions stirs up confidence in my planning dates for shopping with my daughter. Love the energy girls, thank you. I want to sign up and get better at this.
