This episode was great! Already feel better about my fabric stash as I take stock and identify what's in it. Utilizing the app they recommended - Trello, helps enormously.

although I'm just getting familiar with the different types of fabrics, I found this episode really useful to understand more about knits and how to work with them. They are so comfortable, I can't wait to try them out.

Loved this! I'm an unashamed 'collector' (hoarder) of fabric and patterns and it makes me so excited to think of all the potential beautiful clothes I could make! Just discovered this podcast and I think it's really great - kept me very entertained on my commute! :)
