Boy you have made great use of that pattern. And they all look so unique. Makes me want to go and whip up a top.....

Denise said...

I love your podcast! Please keep them coming. Yes they are interesting even with out a interview. I've got to try that shirt pattern. Here is a subject I would like to know more about --fitting pants! Do you ever sew pants or shorts? If so what pattern company do you like? I cannot seem to find one I like. Thanks! You are so inspirational.

I just recently found your podcast and love it. I listen to them as they come out and want to go and listen to back shows. I live near Chicago and have been sewing since I was a child, but am really getting back into it. Your podcast/blog really is inspiring. Keep up the good work.

I'll leave a comment for the drawing too, although I think I did so for the last podcast too :) Love your tips - I'm a big one for doing several projects with the same color thread in a row, too.

Laurie, I am from Vermont and have been a fan almost from the beginning. I particularly liked Wild ginger software and slinky episodes. Thanks for doing such a great job.

Wow great job on the shirts!!!!
Amazing and they do actually look better than the pictures on the pattern front:-) I don't think i would have bought that pattern based on its cover - but having seen your version it looks like a winner!

What great ideas, Lori! Thank you for sharing them! And please don't ever feel like you must apologize for not having an interview. You have great ideas of your own to share, and your sewing progress is inspiring! :-)

Love your podcast, Lori! I'm just catching up on the archives. I frequently listen at work (shhh!) as long as I'm not too busy. I live in Brooklyn, NY and always enjoy looking at your beautiful sewing here and on the Pattern Review website.

I find your podcast very inspiring since I got back into fashion sewing after a long absence.
When Julie-Ann McFann stopped doing her Grandma's Sewing Cabinet podcast, I was disappointed because she got me back to sewing. But then I found yours and now look forward to each one. I didn't mind that you didn't have an interview this last time; I enjoyed all your information on finding time to sew and what you are making! You made some cool tops!

I started listening to your podcast late this winter. I've been listening to some of the archived shows and listen to your new ones as you post them.
No need to apologize for having no guest interview; I enjoy hearing about your own sewing projects just as much.
Thanks for all the time-saving tips!

I'm finally getting a chance to catch up on the latest podcast. I really enjoyed your non-interview podcast. Lots of great tips and advice - I can totally relate to being sucked into the computer, I think it happens to us all from time to time. Off to sew! :-)

Thank you for the podcasts. I very much appreciate the time and effort that you put into them. I am a new listener, having start just in Jan. 08, however I have listened to all the archived ones also. I live in Florida, where they have taken most of the "free" t.v. sewing shows off the air.
So thru the computer you have replaced the shows. Marilyn

This is one of my favorite podcasts! I live in Michigan and subscribe through itunes. I'm a very beginning sewer, but I love listening to your show during my daily commutes.

I found your podcast over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't been sewing long and was excited to hear that I already use some of your time saving techniques but picked up a lot more. Can't wait to hear more!!!

Lori- I love your podcasts! I've been with you since the beginning and enjoyed each one. You motivate me and keep me inspired to try new things and look at the old and familiar a bit differently. Very, very enjoyable.

Love the podcast, Lori! I can't wait for each new episode, and listen to them usually as soon as they are up. I also have that t-shirt pattern....it's a good one!
Congrats on your anniversary....

Hi Lori--I am from Nebraska--I first listened to your podcasts all at once as I just discovered them. It was great while sewing Easter dresses for my grandaughters (3-7-9). Of course now I have to listen one at a time till you get the next on up! They are great!! Keep up the good work!! I am now working on Amy Butler Frenchy bags for graduation presents. Our youngest is graduating from law school in 2 weeks. I have sewen since I was 10 and can't get enoug of it. I have tried dozens of other crafts and hobbies and always come back to sewing. I was so glad to discover the sewing podcasts and yours is one of the best. Sewgran
