Yes, I am kinda all over the place today! Firstly I’m interviewed on the Love to Sew podcast, in which I share tips about sewing activewear, my book Sewing Activewear, the realities of being a sewing content creator, what it’s like to sew in Sweden, and plenty more. I haven’t listened to the podcast yet, I hope sound okay!
When the hosts asked me about Swedish pattern designers I got a bit stumped, as we don’t have any internationally known ones such as Finland’s Named and Ottobre or Danish companies such as Stoff & Stil and Onion. But I have probed my fellow sewing friends for tips now and will do a blog post about Swedish pattern companies in the future, there are some cool ones, that just haven’t been able to break into the mainstream yet.
Watch me on The Sewing Blab tonight!
It’s a show hosted by Dawn of Duelling Design and Myra from 1 Simple Inspiration. If you haven’t checked it out before you should, previous guests includes prolific people like Kenneth King and Heather Lou of Closet Case Files and inspirational hobby sewists too. It will be in the middle of the night for me, so kinda crazy but hopefully in a good way! This will be the second time I’m on the show, the last time I announced I was planning to write a book about sewing activewear, so it feels pretty great to know now that I managed to pull that dream project off!
So yes, today is an intense day media wise. It still feels a little bit weird to be an interviewee as I interviewed people for a living for 15 years and I always want to ask the hosts about a bunch of questions too, chatting about sewing is the best!
