Thank you, Lori, for another great interview, and for the inspiration of your own sewing projects, too! Would you please sign me up for the free pattern from www.hotpatterns.com?

Hi Lori. That was a great interview. I have not sewn a garment for years, but you have inspired me to get back in the game. Thanks!

Melissa said...

Wow, what a fabulous interview! I could just listen to Trudy's voice all day long (I love her accent!!!). She seems like such a charming lady, makes me want to try a HotPatterns pattern right away! :-) Thanks for another wonderful podcast Lori ~ can hardly wait for the next episode. Please enter me in your drawing too.

Great interview. I enjoyed hearing about what's coming for fall, but I was a bit disheartened to hear that Trudy predicts an abrupt end to the empire-waist tops. I haven't even sewn one yet!

Thanks for the great hints, too, Lori!

June said...

Lori, I just love the interviews! This one prompted me to look for a basic T-shirt pattern on hotpatterns.com. I giggled when I saw the size ranges for the Plain & Simple Fitted T-Shirts pattern.
Hopefully I will win this pattern in the drawing!

Vicki said...

Thanks Lori for another great podcast. I was actually sewing while listening. You will need to speak louder when I am serging...lol!!

I've very behind with my podcast listening but I just finished listening to this interview with Trudy and thoroughly enjoyed it. I particularly enjoy these interviews with the pattern companies. Keep up the great work Lori. Thirty-one episodes and still going strong. :)

Wonderful interview, Lori! I sure didn't want to miss this. Trudy sounds just as wonderful as I pictured her.

I listened to this episode on my iPod during my daily walk/exercise. I really enjoyed it, Lori. Thanks for all the time and work you do for the podcast.

I've never sewn a Hot Patterns pattern -- too intimidated. After listening to the interview, it seems less daunting. :) Would love to win the pattern!!

Lori, I just wanted to tell you that I listen to your podcasts and have told other members of my ASG chapter about you and how much fun it is to listen to you. You are doing a fantastic job! I look forward to meeting you in Chicago in about 2 weeks!

Rachel said...

I've drooled over hotpatterns for ages now, but never been confident to try one. After listening to Trudy's enthusiasm, I'm ready to give it a go!
Thanks for another great podcast, Lori.

I enjoyed your interview with Hot Patterns' Trudy. It made me feel better that she still consults her reference books sometime. ;^)

Celeste said...

Thanks for your podcast! I just finished this episode while on the treadmill and it was as satisfying as actually being able to sew. So thank you again and enter me in your drawing for a free hot pattern. I also just joined their email list - so thanks again for the heads up there.

I'm definitely going to check out hotpatterns.com thanks to your podcast. I'm so glad to hear someone else who doesn't love empire tops!

Ms. V said...

I'm a newbie to sewing and just started listening to your podcast. Thank you so much for providing such great information. I can't wait to see what else I can learn through you. It's coincidental since now I'm seeing hotpatterns.com everywhere...

Pam said...

Have already visited the hotpatterns website and really like the bags!

Your interview with Lori could not have come at a better time for me. Great job. I do have one question. What garment construction resources do you recommend? I'm looking forward to your next podcast

Sharon said...

Just finished listening to the podcast while sewing myself a summer dress...another fabulous podcast! Thanks Lori!

Kelley said...

Thanks fro the great interview! I've just gone through all of the old episodes and am inspired.... I've started researching sewing machines now!

CherylStillSews said...

This was a really fun interview - I enjoyed Trudy's behind the scenes overview of designing and collection planning.

Marie said...

Am new to your podcast. I loved it. You have been keeping me company at the pool this summer. Thanks for all the great information you pass along!

I just heard the podcast after reading the newsletter. Am I too late to enter the contest?

Great interview. The enthusiasm is contagious! I too was a bit disheartened on the view that empire line tops might be 'on the way out' but to be honest, my absolute favourite top is one and there's no way that's going! :) If you like it, and it suits you, and most importantly, makes you feel good and happy, then I think that's the most important thing. So I for one am keeping mine. Sorry Trudy - loved the rest of the interview though! :D
