I, too, love to plan but get disappointed when plans fail to come to fruition. Keep the ideas coming! Also, I don't order fabric online much but I am awaiting my first Blackbird Fabrics order now.

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.
