I am delighted to have Shannon Fraser on the podcast for a chat today. Shannon has been a long time listener of the Modern Sewciety Podcast and a reader of The Stych. She is always so kind to send me messages of encouragement and we have really struck up a great online friendship. Our hope is, of course, to meet in person one day soon. Shannon also has her own amazing website and newsletter. Shannon is a fierce creative with a passion for color and I so love her for that. She embraces her love of the color coral and I am pretty sure she tries to sneak it in every project she can. Shannon and I chat about what inspires her creative process, her new patterns that she is releasing, newsletters, and, of course, newsletters. We love to chat about newsletters and business. Shannon is just the sweetest person you will ever meet with a heart of gold. I am so excited to share this chat with you, my listeners. Please welcome Shannon to the podcast and show her some listener love.
Svetlana from S.O.T.A.K. handmade is someone I have followed via her amazing blog and social media accounts for a long time. I love her classicly modern patterns and playful handmades. I also love seeing how she mixes fabrics in her projects. Her latest posts boast bags made with waxed canvas which makes me want to make my own version right away. Svetlana is fearless with her creative endeavors which range from making bags to quilts to hand stamping her own prints. We chat about her patterns, her creative process, and I ask all the business questions because I am a huge admirer of her business model. I get all of the information about her gorgeous photographs of her makes and why she has decided to keep her personal life out of her business life. She seriously has some of the cutest photographs on her blog and social media. I left this conversation so inspired to think about my own business in a new way as well as my creative life. Svetlana also has an amazing resource of tutorials that I will make sure to link to in the show notes.
