One thought on “Sewing’s Resurgence

  1. This is a very belated thank you for all the wonderful hours of enjoyment you’ve given me while listening to your podcasts! I have a very boring, physical job that would be extremely tedious if not for my iPod and the joy of listening to your stories. You’ve made me laugh many times and smile countless others. My children are quite a bit older than yours but you’ve brought back many memories of when they were young and I so love when we can hear them playing in the background while you’re recording :) I am so grateful that people like you and Sister Diane from Craftypod are generous enough to devote some time to educate and entertain us and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    I hope to hear a new podcast from you soon, but until then, will listen to your older ones over and over again. Take care!
