So! Sew. And sew and sew and sew. That’s what I’ve been doing lately. In part to get ready for the upcoming Quilt Market, but also, even more urgently, to prepare for the very exciting (and extremely anxiety-producing) appearance on PBS’s Sew It All TV that taped on Monday. I tend to be terrified of speaking in public. In fact, I recently gave a talk to my niece’s 8th grade class on graphic design, and I almost passed out from stage fright. SO, you can imagine that the thought of appearing on national TV had me in a little bit of a bunch. But luckily, there was SO MUCH SEWING to do in preparation that I didn’t have too much time left over to worry about the actual appearance. For the show I did a tutorial on the summer dress pictured below in Hill and Dale (left) and Peony:

There is no set date for the episode to air, as each PBS station runs it on its own schedule, but you can find out more about the show on their website here.

Also, I wrote an article on organic cotton featuring the same dress tutorial for Sew News magazine, and that will run in the April edition. I’ll keep you posted on that as well.

Now, back to the sewing machine!

  1. YAY, congratulations on such a great feature! I'm glad that you got through the stage fright allright; I suffer from that as well. The dresses look fabulous!

    Wowser! Congratulations and well done getting through the stage fright. Shame I'm in the UK as I don't think I'll get to see it, unless someone puts some of it on You Tube. The dresses are super cute!

  3. Ack. I TOTALLY get the stage fright. I hate to say anything more than my name in public, while my husband would LOVE to be a professional speaker. I don't understand…

    As always, beautiful designs, Jennifer!

    Thanks, guys! I was definitely a bit, well, stiff during filming, but at least nothing went dramatically wrong.

    OH! And Cindy, I used your Monaluna selvedge pin cushion on the show! I wasn't able to mention it on air, but I told the Sew It All crew about it. I just love using it!
