MS episode 179: Zoe Baer Rohrer from Zoe Dawn Shop. Sewing with recycled and thrifted fabrics.

Zoe Dawn is my guest on the podcast today. I follow Zoe on instagram and really admire her work. She uses thrifted and gifted fabric to sew her handmade heirloom items for her etsy shop. Zoe and I chat about why she is conscious about her materials for her shop, how she finds time to be creative while being a busy mom and farmer’s wife, and so much more. Zoe and I had such a great time talking about being creative and how important we think creativity is in daily life. Don’t forget to check out the show notes for more information on the things we mentioned.

In episode 178 I am chatting with Nicohole from wildboho. I always love chatting with Nichole and even had the chance to meet her in person at Quilt Market several years ago. Nichole does such an awesome job sharing her makes on Instagram, and her blog, by really mixing colors and patterns with style.

MS episode 177: Erin from Maternity Sewing

MS episode 177: Erin from Maternity Sewing

I get emails often about suggestions for guests for the podcast and this episode was the result of one of those emails. Erin reached out to me about her new website, Maternity Sewing, she started with fellow sewist, Lisa. Erin and Lisa saw that there was a need for information on sewing patterns and pattern hacks for maternity clothes so they started Maternity Sewing. Erin and I chat about how they decided to start a website, what information they wanted to have on the site, what would be helpful to sewists who wanted to stitch up maternity clothing, and so much more. They have even started a podcast! These ladies are on a mission and I really love how they are helping others build a handmade wardrobe while pregnant and postpartum. Speaking of postpartum, we do chat about our experiences after giving birth and I hope you find some of our chat helpful and uplifting. I really loved getting to know more about Erin and how Maternity Sewing can help so many in our community.

MS episode 174: Lesley Hill of Homeday Studio. Modern Handmade Home Goods.

I love getting to chat with creatives I follow on instagram. I don’t think I will ever tire of saying that. It is just so much fun to learn about the creative process of others and also how they fit being a creative into their daily lives. I was so honored to have Lesley on the podcast. We had a great chat about all things sewing and I really wanted to know more about how Lesley runs her handmade business. She chats about pricing, photography, products, and so much more. It was a lovely chat and I really was inspired by her design sense as well. I just love her work and I know you will too. Click to listen or find the podcast on iTunes and Stitchr.
