Wednesday Weekly #97

Morning Makers! Happy Wednesday to you all! I am a little jittery with excitement this week because I am so blown away by the response to our podcast launch on Instagram! Thank you so much for your kind words and for following us on our Love to Sew Instagram account! We could not be more excited to share more with you next week, in fact, we have three whole episodes to share right from the start and then new episodes every week! We hope you enjoy the show. Now, don’t mind me while I promote the show even more in the Wednesday Weekly – #sorrynotsorry. 🙂

Congratulations on the launch of the Podcast! And many thanks for the shout-out.

Way to go! Very excited to have a Canadian sewing podcast.

Thanks so much for featuring me again! I’m not much of a podcast person but I’m looking forward to hearing yours! Good luck! X

Thanks for all the great inspiration! I’m looking forward to listening to the podcast.

Thank you Helen for sharing my dress! That fabric looks good in everything. Loved the teaser to your podcast, really looking forward to more.

Hey — what t-shirt pattern are you wearing in the podcast promo photos? I love it!

Hi Carly! Thanks! Its a box top I’ve drafted for myself, but it may become a pattern in the future! A similar top would be the Lou Box Top from Sew DIY or the Ultraviolet Tee by Seamstress Erin 🙂

I just listened to your podcast Episodes 1-3 while I cleaned my house today:) Love it! You said you appreciated feedback from followers… when I click on the link to the rope bag tutorial it pulls up the tutorial on finishing a knit with woven bias. Thought you’d like to know.

Thank you, Nikki! I have fixed the link no, DOH. Thank goodness for tips like this, I really appreciate it. I’m glad you are enjoying the show!
