Episode #12: The Literary Sewing Circle with Melanie from Following the Thread

Lori and I were pretty excited to be contacted by Melanie, who writes at the blog Magpie Makery (now relaunched as Following the Thread), telling us how a previous podcast of ours had inspired her to launch a literary sew along! We were immediately in love with the idea and all on board to do two of our favorite things- read and sew. All three of us got together to discuss the idea and we hope you get inspired to join a sew along yourself!

Mentioned in this Podcast:

Books:
Literary Knits by Nicole Lohr
 
Resources:
A Dress A Day – Erin McKean (book: The Secret Lives of Dresses)
Clothes in Books, a book blog
Patterns/Garments:
Nettie Bodysuit by Closet Case Files
Laneway Dress by Jennifer Lauren

  1. Great episode! I loved hearing all about this idea from Melanie, it sounds like so much fun. I also appreciate the time frames she has proposed, being a slow reader myself!

  2. I really enjoyed this episode. I discovered your podcast a little while ago and I’ve listened to all of your episodes, they are great. I love the idea of linking reading and sewing as I listen to lots of audiobooks and now podcasts, so the Literary Sew-Along sounds perfect to me. I am definitely going to join in, especially if ‘Hidden Figures’ is on the list as I listened to it earlier this year. I have never read a Ray Bradbury, which sounds like fun too, but I’ve just realised I am a bit late to this party, oops. I’m looking forward to your next episode and the next choice!

    1. Thanks for your feedback, Victoria! We’re glad you are enjoying the podcast. As soon as I finished recording that episode, I pulled up Hidden Figures on Netflix and enjoyed it a lot. I do recommend the Ray Bradbury book even if it’s a little late to join in the sewalong for it. 🙂
