Wednesday Weekly #132

Happy Wednesday, Makers! If you are a regular listener to the Love to Sew Podcast, you may have already heard that my partner, Sam, is joining me in working from home! This is our first week together in the ‘office’ and we are really loving it. I have my personal chef and photographer on hand more often now, and he is going to help me out with many little things for Helen’s Closet as well as the podcast. I hope to have more time to dedicate to creating patterns and tutorials for the blog with his help. Wish us luck with this new phase!

  1. Thanks for doing the Wednesday Weekly. It always makes me happy. I also listen faithfully to the podcast, and this week’s episode was so fun! I love listening to families speak, because it is so interesting to hear the different mannerisms that people pick up from each other. Both of your moms seem so awesome. Happy sewing!
