I would love to be in the drawing for this book. I listened to your podcast while at the gym yesterday and immediatly went to Borders afterward to buy the book, but they didn't have it in stock.
It really enjoy listening to your podcasts. Have fun at your daughters wedding coming up soon.

I really enjoyed the interview with Lexie as well as the other information you shared. I hope we don't have to wait *too* long for the next podcast (I know you're so busy tho!). ;-) Please enter me in the drawing. I would like to get a little more proficient at bag making (I've only made a few thus far).

Anne LO said...

Thanks for a great podcast - well worth the wait! I'd love to win that book. :-)

Thanks for the drawing, Lori, and for the fun podcast. I'm really amazed at how much you're able to do! Would you please enter my name for the book? I've been on a bit of a bag kick, too, and this sounds like it would continue to fuel my ambitions in that area. :-)

Michelle said...

Loved the Lexi Barnes interview. It was very inspiring to me because she learned how to sew, started her own business in a field she did not earn a college degree, her business is expanding and she is successful!

Thank you

Heather said...

Thanks for all the work you put in to your podcasts. I enjoy listening to them as I sew. I've been sewing a lot of bags recently and would love a copy of Lexie's new book.

Did you enjoy our walk today? ;-)
I've started walking, and have loaded your podcasts to make the exercise fun and enjoyable, so now when I go out, you come too!
Loved the interview with Lexie and would love to go in the draw for her book.

Thanks again for the podcast, Lori. Once again, you put me to shame with all of the things you accomplish!
I'd love to win the drawing for Lexie's book. The interview was quite interesting

It seems that the only things I want to sew these days is purses and more purses. Really enjoyed this podcast. Want to see your finished garments however.

I would love to be in the drawing for the book. I love bags and can never find the right bag for me. Maybe I'll just have to make it myself! =)

Another great podcast and very timely for a current project that I'm working on. As always - thanks. Please enter me in the drawing.


Lori said...


It's good to hear your podcast again. Seems like a number of my favorite podcasters are busy this year so aren't doing as many podcasts.

I've seen the bag book advertised but didn't think I was too interested. After hearing your podcast, I may need to seek it out. That is if I don't win the drawing.

Lori, I love your podcast!! You always do such a great job interviewing your guest, and your tips and advice is great. I would love to be in your contest for this book. I love free, but will get this book regardless. Thanks for all your time and effort that goes into your shows. Deila

Amy said...


I recently found your podcast and love it! I am getting back into sewing and find your show filled with all sorts of useful information. It is giving me so much inspiration! I am also a crocheter and knitter, and there is much love for the Lexie Barnes knitting bags amongst us yarnies. I'd love to be entered into the book drawing (if it's not too late!) to make my own Perfect For Me bag.

Hi Lori, Lexi was a hoot! I enjoyed her interview. I'm a quilter and am terrible at apparel sewing but I do a few things and love bags. I still listen to all your podcasts in case something strikes my fancy and I like your voice.

Keep it up!! Tami
