Growing up my mom I remember my mom sewing a lot of my clothes. Well, maybe just all the amazing girly dresses I asked for. She would even make them for friends if she was in the mood. I remember there being quilts made by my mom, my grandma, and maybe my great grandma but I don’t remember them actually working on them. I just remember they had sewing machine and were always working on projects but I don’t remember any particular one.
I am a huge fan of Helen and Caroline and when they started their podcast, Love to Sew, I knew I needed to have them on for a chat. It is so much fun to listen to their conversations on their podcast and I have to admit it makes me want a cohost! lol I wanted to have them on to talk about why they started the podcast, their own businesses, and pretty much everything in between. It is so much fun to have another podcaster on the show because they are usually in my shoes so turning the tables is so much fun for us both. You are going to love this episode and I am pretty sure you will be subscribing right away to the Love to Sew podcast.
I am chatting with Minki Kim today on the podcast. I need to warn you to get ready for some inspiration. Minki Kim is someone I have followed online for a really long time so when the opportunity came to have a chat with her I was so excited.
