THANK YOU! Learn more about Catherine McKinleyInstagram: @the_african_lookbook  and@cemck2  www.catherinemckinley.net www.themckinleycollection.comCatherine says that some of her "most meaningful experiences were sitting at sewing tables in Africa and watching the contact between a seamstress and clients. Sewing orders or elaborate alterations are a weekly or monthly indulgence for many women, so the gossip and planning, the low grade competition, and the intimacy of fittings, etc. was wonderful, not to mention the latest styles and new cloth designs, which changed so rapidly."

An explanatory note: This audio was recorded using a new online audio recording program. It was a mistake. Not only did my input sound terrible, the software failed to upload (or backup) LaTerry's audio. The only audio that the software managed to save was a combination of both of our voices, impossible for my limited skills to repair. All of this is to say that I apologize for the audio quality of this episode. It's a podcaster's nightmare. So I've tried to make it as audible as possible. As a bit of compensation for the poor audio, I am offering everyone access to the video of the interview.  LaTerry looks wonderful! And you can see part of her amazing studio in the background. Thank you for your patience and for your support. Learn more about LaTerrySew Modest Studio’s Lead Instructor and Founding Director, LaTerry Abdulnoor Yaseen Mohsin, is an internationally-trained Fashion and Jewelry Designer, having studied Fashion Design and Photography in London, England.

My body confidence grew when I started sewing because I stopped limiting my wardrobe and made clothes that fit me well. I love to bring my Blackness and power in my photos of my makes. I am proud of my Blackness and being apart of the African Diaspora. In my makes and photoshoots I try my best to embody that pride because it shows the world who I am. Changing my name to reflect my ancestors roots was/is the most important thing I have ever done. When I changed my name to one that reflected who I am, and who I am to become, I felt whole. Like my pride, mindset, and personality matched with my name."

wow I am so GLAD you brought this up. Yes!!! The coupon scam at Joanna's is crazy. Now another scam for me was the rewards program. quite a few times I have collected a couple of dollars to use at the store, and your right everytime I tried to use the rewards money I couldn't because either I had and item was not regular price then a really crazy rule was the "whatever" I was getting had to be the amount of the rewards for example if you had $10 you had to find a regular priced $10 item where are the items that you CAN BUY with the rewards messaged Joann and explain it to them and I also asked them to not give me any more rewards that i can't use.
