Lori loves to make things: noise, a scene, friends, trouble, hay when the sun shines—but mostly she loves making clothes. Whether using knitting needles or sewing machine needles, clothes that are colourful, comfortable, and stylish are her thing. With a measure-once-cut-at-least-twice attitude, not everything turns out perfectly but it’s all part of a fun and educational DIY adventure with which you can follow along on her blog at FrivolousAtLast.com.

Producing the Clothes Making Mavens podcast with Helena seems like the perfect way for Lori to keep making noise and friends (and maybe even trouble) while spending time exploring what it means to be creative, how clothing shapes our lives, and how much damn fun making clothes can be.

Lori lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband in a cat-fur-and-fabric-scrap-filled home.

Sewing constantly in sunny southern California and blogging at GrayAllDay.com was just not enough for Helena. She wanted to talk about sewing more, more, more! So she decided to start a podcast especially for the DIY Handmade wardrobe.

She’s been sewing all her life, but the craft of sewing is always evolving for her.  It is an exciting process and one that makes her especially interested in how other’s sewing processes evolve, too.

During various interviews and chats with her co-host, Lori, she hopes to explore the creative and technical intricacies of garment sewing, but most of all, have fun talking about her very favorite pastime!

Barbara Emodi has spent most of her life sewing or thinking about sewing when she was supposed to be doing something else.

As a result she has acquired a huge reservoir of handy hints, fixes, and sewing explanations she is happy to share with anyone who will listen. Having long ago exhausted both her family and friends with her endless stream of sewing opinions, she is delighted now to join the Sewing Mavens in this podcast adventure.

Barbara blogs at www.barbaraemodi.com under the header Sewing on the Edge and her first sewing book Sew…the Garment Making Book of Knowledge: Real-Life lessons from a Serial Sewist will be released May 2018
