After all my great intentions to record podcasts regularly, life still gets in the way! I recorded this podcast in February but it’s now April before I even get the blog post up. I was aiming for a podcast every two week but at the moment I’m not even managing once a month. As I listen to the recording again to remember what I talked about, it seems wrong to be talking about Christmas when we’ve just had Easter. However, I will keep the podcast and just apologise for those things that are not quite relevant now as I hope there are many things that are still worth listening to! Continue reading

Today I explain why Bishy Barnababes has been a bit quiet recently and what I’ve had to be spending my time doing – getting my house ready to sell! I discuss my favourite method for dealing with the thread tails left when overlocking/serging and my favourite type of needle to use. I also share something I made a few weeks ago in my sewing room.
Join me as I chat about the latest Bishy Barnababes free-motion applique patterns and the Swhetty Betties Designer Pairs challenge. I explain how I’m getting on with my coverstitch and the differences between this and a sewing machine or overlocker/serger, and of course what I’ve been sewing in my Sewing Room!
In today’s episode I share with you more about the latest Bishy Barnababes pattern releases – more free-motion appliqué, the difference between interfacing and stabilizer and what I’ve been sewing in my sewing room!
In this episode, a very exciting delivery interrupts the podcast – my new sewing machine and coverstitch!
