Love this group of sewists!

The chemistry is there, people. The sewing talk is stellar. Come on, join in the fun!

KD8QGG ,

I can relax and listen.

Thank you for this podcast. You team inspires me to sew. I enjoy that I can just let my guard down and listen. Honestly, I think I would listen to a podcast of just Meg’s laughter.

michaels magic threadworks ,

Please!

Stop saying like in every sentence. It really is irritating. Otherwise a 5 star!
