Love this podcast. When you and Lynne met this summer, I thought that you should do a podcast together. So glad you did!

Dinah said...

Great podcast, Lori :) Thanks for taking the time to do shownotes, too. I love to head straight to them and look at all the sites you link to. Really enjoyed the conversation with Lynn.


Melissa said...

I really enjoyed your latest podcast Lori, wish I didn't have to wait so long for the next one. I'm working on a jacket right now, so it was fun to listen to you and Lynn chat while I sewed. :-)

Absolutely loved this episode. It made a regular drive into a really enjoyable pasttime! Fantastic! I have been over to Lynne's blog - looks great. Thanks for yet another great introduction for us.

Mary Sarah said...

Roberta said...

Hi Lori, I am a new listener and am REALLY enjoying your podcasts! I downloaded several to take with me to listen to while traveling on our recent holiday. The time flew by. Thanks for working so hard to inspire us sewers.

I am a new listener and I've been really enjoying trying to catch up on all of your great podcasts. I'm learning so much. I have one suggestion for your blog - could you put up a little more information for the show notes? I listen while doing housework, or in the car, or out for a walk, and I can't jot down pattern numbers! It would be a huge help if you could add a list of the patterns you mention so we could look them up later. Thanks so much for all your hard work on this great show!

Marie said...

Loved this one! There are several that I listened to many many times. Thanks for the good interview and all the information you give.

Hi Lori! My gosh, there's so much to hear and see on this episode! I love the jacket. Thanks for posting all of the links; it's taking me a while to visit all of them. Look forward to the next podcast!

Hi Lori
Just wanted to thank you for letting us know about the Singer celebration. Having dug out the serial number from my first sewing machine, a hand crank Singer my nan bought me when I was about 8 I think, I've found out it was made in 1929. I've got the certificate ready to print. The machine has special memories for me and this has added to it all. It makes you wonder who used it before, and what they made. Thanks so much for yet another inspiring edition.

That is a charming yet elegant piece of clothing. The colors red, white and black go well with each other. Who came up with the style? Also, the cut and the lines make give it a very slim touch I'll give it 4 and a half stars.
