Podcasting!

I made my podcast debut! I had the opportunity to chat with Pat Sloan on the American Patchwork and Quilting podcast about my work with the Moda Bake Shop and my love of quilting. It was a blast!


For the uninitiated, podcasts are basically radio shows. There is a huge variety of styles--some are serialized, with new episodes building on previous ones. Others are standalone episodes. Some are audio versions of familiar shows (the Daily Show has a truncated version in podcast form called the Ears Edition). Topics are wide-ranging, and there is truly something out there for everyone, including sewists! I love listening to podcasts while I sew. It's a great way to entertain yourself while creating. I find wireless headphones are particularly handy, as there's no cord to get tangled around (or accidentally cut!). 

I enjoy several quilting and sewing related podcasts. Besides American Patchwork and Quilting (long a favorite!), I like While She Naps, Modern Sewciety, and Sit & Sew Radio. For non-crafting podcasts, my favorites include Freakonomics, TED Radio Hour, From Scratch, StoryCorps, and Endless Thread.

I listen to podcasts on my phone through the iPhone app, but there are several other platforms to use. Most podcasts are free to enjoy and you can even subscribe and have new episodes automatically download to your device.

What are some of your favorite podcasts?

  2. You might enjoy listening to the “While She Naps” podcast. Abby Glassenberg is a crafter and small business person (internet based), and she talks with many people who are active in the fabric/crafty business on her podcast. She has very interesting guests and asks great questions. The podcasts go back a few years, so you can have many hours of enjoyable listening while you sew. Abby also sends out a great weekly newsletter that has links for interesting articles about sewing/crafting, blogging and other things. Hope you enjoy it!
