Sewing Podcasts

Is it Summer or Fall?

I don't think I've ever posted about the podcasts I've been listening to. I discovered Grandma's Sewing Cabinet a while back. I enjoy her enthusiasm, but I find that she tends to shill her other businesses quite a bit, which turns me off. I am not downloading her in order to listen to ads, thankyouverymuch. . .

I also listen to Annie's Quilting Stash. This is a fantastic show. She really makes me want to quilt again. Not that I've actually gone and started a quilt, but she's very inspiring and personable. A joy to listen to.

So far, these are the only sewing podcasts I've found. Patternreview put some of its tips in podcast form, but it's not the same kind of thing. I really like hearing something that I can listen to while I walk, not little sound bites broken into short pieces.

I just discovered a new podcast, Material Mama. I haven't listened to it yet, in fact just downloaded it today, but I'll come back with a review. Her name *Cookie Pants* sounds familiar to me. I think she used to have a cloth diaper business, back in the days when I was sewing diapers for ds and hanging around the granola mom message boards. . .

I listen to several knitting podcasts, many of which are professional quality -- hope the sewers will catch up soon -- it's such a great resource. . .

Howdy! Love your blog! Yep, CookiePants was my cloth diaper biz. I now sell AP advocacy stuff. I'd rather sew for my own family than diapers for others LOL.

Thanks for the nice comment!

My fave podcast for awhile was the Gay Fun Show. Feastoffools.net.
Try it. Pretty darn funny. My ipod got stolen last year at school, :(, and I'm waiting on the replacement (reimbursed by school), which should come any day. Then podcasting will be viable again.
Good food is another great one. You can find it on itunes in the NPR section. By the way, I've finished the Annette pic. The title makes it. Check out my blog.

Yeah, Vak I listen to NPR books and NPR food, plus I have a sub to *This American Life* at audible.com. I love being able to pick and choose the content. I'm about to get to overload -- but it's a great motivator to exercise since I mostly listen while I walk.
