My guest today, Karis, has the cutest modern fabric shop in Sarasota, Florida. I visited not that long ago and knew that I needed to have her on the podcast for a chat. She is always up for a chat about sewing and fabric which is my favorite type of chat. I wanted to know more about her story and wow is it an interesting one that led her to open her own shop. We chat about fabric, patterns, Block of the Month clubs, and so much more. I love how Karis and Jenni, her awesome shop manager, are really involved in their local sewing community. The Modern Sewist is just a slice of heaven filled with fabrics, threads, patterns, notions, and so much more but the one thing I love are the loyal customers that are always stopping in to say hi. They are building a vibrant sewing community and I can’t wait to see what they do this year. This is a chat that you are going to love.
Jenni Engleman, @jenglebelle, is an amazing creative who works at the shop
