The science, art, and heart of sewing are discussed in today's episode as quilting expert Melanie Collette joins “Hey, Sister!” hosts Courtney and Carley. Melanie shares simple beginner sewing project ideas and the essential tools every home should have. Don't miss this encouraging Home Economics class; the conclusion of the “Hey, Sister!” Back to School series, airing August-September 2022.    Call to Action:   Buy the recommended basic tools: fabric scissors, thread (Gutermann brand, white, black and navy), measuring tape/seam gauge, pins with pearl heads, and embroidery scissors.   “My call to action is to encourage the sisterhood to get those supplies—those basic sewing supplies—and have them in their home. That way, when the urge hits; when that button needs sewed back on; you are ready! And it's the preparedness part of it where, ‘I can do it because I have the tools to do it already in this drawer waiting for me!' So my call to action is prepare yourself! Get those tools that you need in your home.” Melanie Collette, Hello Melly Designs   Resources:  Wider benefits of learning across the course of life College of London study     Check out these other episodes in the Back to School Series Episode 42 Rub Some Dirt in it! // Kathleen Mooney (Science) Episode 43 Sound of Music // Maren Paris Cline (Music) Episode 44 Mind over Money // Mikayla Ockey (Math) Episode 45 Let's get Physical! // Mary Eagan (PE) Episode 46 She Knows the Drill // Adriana López (Shop) Episode 47 History is Her Story, Too! // Alli Roper (History) Episode 48 The Write Stuff // Rachel Nielson (Writing)   Connect with Melanie https://www.instagram.com/hellomellydesigns/ https://www.hellomellydesigns.com (check out her FREEBIES!)   Connect with Hey, Sister! https://www.instagram.com/theheysisterpodcast/ https://heysisterpodcast.org   Show Timeline 0:00 Episode and guest introduction   4:15 Melanie's home economics beginnings, Courtney's “straight stitch” talk, Carley's high school apron project   7:00 “You are totally capable of doing it!” attitude about sewing, comfortable starting point (napkins)   9:45 Fabric options; the right textile for the right project, “Hand” of fabric   13:30 Favorite projects (snowball quilts), must-have tools (see call to action)   16:45 Sewing machine chat   19:15 Home Economics skills: artistic with scientifcally proven benefits (see Resources above)   23:30 “If they don't sell it, I can make it!”, confidence dressing daughters   24:30 Quilting tells a story, quilting is for everyone (ages, genders)      29:15 Call to action, contact information, concluding thoughts, outtakes

Although Teresa comes from generations of makers, she was the first to pursue quilting as a career when she, as she puts it, “stumbled into the quilting industry.” It began in 2011 when she joined the crew at the Fabric Shop Network and then became editor of Websense magazine. Teresa started out making garments using patterns from The Big Four. From there she discovered Indie pattern makers and vintage patterns, and really started working with non-traditional fabrics like painted canvas and double chiffons, and other weird fabrics and piecing them together to make different types of quilts. After coming on board with Shannon Fabrics, she began specializing in Shannon's Cuddle® fabrics, a 100% polyester microfiber plush fabric. Today Teresa uses these fabrics to create unique quilts, crafts, home décor, and apparel.  (2:12 – 11:11)As she continues talking about her journey, she shares how a trip to Vietnam in 2007 with her children changed everything for her. After volunteering at several orphanages there, Teresa continued her outreach work. It's a fascinating story of bringing caring and hope to young Vietnamese children, and of working with others in the sewing community to provide much-needed goods to Vietnam orphanages. Because of the profound impact it had on her, Teresa hopes to return to Vietnam within the next couple of years. (11:11 – 15:24)Meanwhile, Teresa is traveling the US with her partner, videographer, and RV driver Hawke who is working with her to bring Shannon Fabrics' Sew Together Tuesdays to live audiences across America. On the road ten out of the last twelve months, they've been to 43 states, where Teresa has taught in all kinds of beautiful and charming quilt shops, met all kinds of interesting people, and experienced countless joyful moments. She talks about the range of different shops and fabrics and creative focuses, from heirloom sewing to embroidery, traditional quilting to modern clothes. She also shares the one thing that all of these shop owners have in common, which is their deep love for the industry. According to Teresa, her time on the road never stops being entertaining.Her connection to the myriad of people she meets on the road continues via her Facebook group, “I Love Cuddle® Fabric.” She loves what she does so much, she plans to continue teaching and hopes to add more pattern-making into her creative endeavors. “I get to teach. I get to learn. And that's the thing that makes me happy.” (22:07-30:04)Be sure to listen in on our casual conversation with Teresa for inspiration, insights, and a lot of smiles. If you'd like to connect with Teresa, you can reach her at Teresa@Shannonfabrics.com or at her I Love Cuddle® Fabric Facebook page.If you know someone who has an outstanding story that should be shared on this podcast, or what to comment or just say hello - drop Meg a note to Meg@sewandsopodcast.com or complete the form on our website

Visiting the Vancouver location of Maiwa to talk with founder and owner Charllotte Kwon was one of those pinch-me moments. I was surrounded by beautiful textiles in a warehouse/office/store while we talked about the history of the company, the connections and research they are doing with farmers in India, and the many many projects they have in the works. Maiwa has a 30-year history in the natural dye industry and the focus has always been on sustainable practices. Thirty years ago Charllotte Kwon formed a company and opened a shop. The shop was located in a new community of artisans that had formed on Granville Island. The Island, through its concentration of fine artists, printers, bookbinders, papermakers, potters, theatres, retailers, students, and industry, redefined itself as the cultural heart of Vancouver. The company was called Maiwa. In Cantonese and Mandarin “maiwa” is a word used to name the language through which art speaks. Maiwa. Beautiful language. Natural dyes are more than an ecologically smart way to add colour to yarns and cloth. Natural dyes embody the idea that there is a relationship between creativity, skill, what we make, what we wear, and the natural world. For Maiwa, natural dyes are evidence that colour can be a cultural force linking individuals to history and tradition. They work directly with farmers and run a full-time natural dye studio.Charllotte Kwon is the owner of Maiwa Handprints Ltd. and the director of the Maiwa Foundation. Through Maiwa, Charllotte also runs a textile archive and research library located on Granville Island in Vancouver, Canada. Under her direction Maiwa has produced four documentary films and a number of print publications. She also guides Maiwa's substantial web presence.Charllotte travels extensively each year to research handcraft and to supplement her natural-dye research. Always looking to extend natural dye use, she also teaches dyeing workshops with artisans around the world and has planned a series of natural dye master classes to bring exceptional practicing artisans together. In 2014 she was awarded an Honourary Doctorate of Letters from the University of the Fraser Valley for her work in promoting the continuation of traditional textile techniques and cultures. In 2017 Charllotte was awarded the Robert Jekyll Award for Leadership in Craft (Canada). The same year she was an organizer for the Indigo Sutra Conference in Kolkata, India.Maiwa Website: https://maiwa.com/Maiwa School of Textiles: https://maiwa.teachable.com/Maiwa Handprints Ltd.1310 Odlum Drive Vancouver BC V5L 3M3Phone 604 669 3939 You can find me, Bridget O'Flaherty - The Sustainable Quilter here:www.bridgetoflaherty.comInstagram: @thesustainablequilterFacebook: @thesustainablequilterYoutube: Bridget O'Flaherty The Sustainable QuilterSupport the show buy me a cuppa tea!https://bridgetoflaherty.com/product/support-the-podcast/Music Credit: Thanks to Isaac Matthews for his incredible talent.You can find and follow him on Instagram @hesjustakid for more of his music. Support the show

While at the University of Alabama, Leah Kate got a lot of experience with leotards, both as a dancer and as part of the costume department. What she found was that rarely did they properly fit all women's body types. Knowing that one of the first rules of dancewear is that it should enhance movement, not burden it, she set out to create styles that were functional, comfortable, and fashionable. Within her first eight months, she was featured at two sold-out shows at New York Fashion Week. Leah's passion for design was ignited when she was nine years old and involved in a local hip-hop dance theater. She realized that one of the ways she and the other dancers expressed themselves was through what they wore, so she started drawing designs for leotards in her notebooks. “I was probably designing five or six a week or something like that. And I had no ability to make them yet, but I definitely had vision.” It was her senior year of high school, when started to develop her skills: working with steel boning and patterning, she created a beautiful stretch corset. Leah realized that regular flat patterns didn't work for a dancer with her build: long torso, athletic build, full bust measurement. She fully developed the skills to make clothes in college, but it wasn't until after she graduated and inherited a 50-year-old Serger that she was able to develop a prototype. Soon after, she purchased a BERNINA L 890 with air-threading capabilities. At that point, she had the resources she needed to launch her company. [2:00-22:00)And wow, what a launch it was! Leah Kate shares her experience of receiving the call to help choreograph a dance fashion show for EDM artists DRMAGDN and Sh!tty Princess in collaboration with fashion designer Hicham Bens of The Royals Paris (personal designer for the Moroccan Royal Family). About halfway through the process, DRUMAGDN asked her if she wanted to launch Leahtards. As if that wasn't exciting enough—Leahtards opened the show. She choreographed, performed, and launched her brand at New York Fashion Week. She also shares some of the highlights of her illustrious dancing career.  A video of the Fashion Show Week performances is currently in the works, as the momentum of Leah Kate's success keeps building. Leah Kate's mission is to provide dancewear and costumers that make dancers feel good about walking out onto the stage for rehearsal or performing in her own words. “I want to be a refuge for my dancers, and my customers so that they feel like themselves, they feel that they've expressed themselves fully, and they're not judging themselves, and therefore, they really don't care if anybody else is.” [24:19-51:56]To say that Leah Kate is an entrepreneurial powerhouse would be an understatement.  As she details her experiences, the energy builds and her passion and enthusiasm are palpable. Be sure to tune in to listen to this amazing success story. You can connect with her by going to her website, Leahtards.com or by emailing her at LeahKatenickel.comIf you know someone who has an outstanding story that should be shared on this podcast, drop Meg a note to meg@sewandsopodcast.com or complete the form on our website.

Did you know that every year the average Canadian throws out 80lbs of textile waste and up to an average of 44 t-shirts? Gemma Smith was shocked to see her landfill contained so much textile waste and is on a mission to save t-shirts from heading there. She created t-shirt blankets that save precious memories as well as keep them out of landfill. So far she has diverted over 10,000 shirts and made over 400 blankets. We talk about sourcing new materials that are sustainable as well as sharing stories of some of the clients that want to have memory blankets and custom quilts made. Re-Vive the Tee An affordable and Canadian way to up-cycle old clothing that celebrates life, achievements, and adventures. Gemma Smith discovered her passion for sewing after having children and wanting to be able to stay home with them, while earning an income. So, for the past 10 years she has been creating special memory keepsake items for family and friends. The idea initially came as her children grew far too quick and she was having a hard time getting rid of their baby clothing. Gemma started to think of how she could keep their baby clothes in a way that wouldn't take up unnecessary storage space, and she would get to enjoy and look at them often, reminiscing on the baby age. Her first ever quilt was created from an assortment of her daughters clothing.

On this episode of Gen X Amplified, I am joined by the wonderful and amazing Kim Alexis Newton. Kim is a former Hallmark Cards Inc. corporate executive, quilt artist, board member, and also my fellow Vanderbilt Business School alumni! She is also one of the featured phenoms in the #FabulousOver40 Spotlight Series on LinkedIn. During this episode, Kim and I chat about her 20-plus years experience working for Hallmark Cards – which was her dream job coming out of business school. And also why and how she decided to leave corporate after many years to pursue her dreams of creating magic and meaningful impact with her art.   About Kim Kim is a seasoned global marketing executive, board director, advisor, quilt artist, and entrepreneur. She is also the creator of the Intentional Pause™ Project, a media, product and experience platform helping women embrace “pausing” as a powerful way to achieve their dreams. Prior to her entrepreneurial journey, Kim spent 20+ years as an executive leader for one of the most iconic brands in the world, Hallmark Cards. During her Hallmark tenure, Kim directly influenced global corporate strategy, and led transformation across a $4B diversified portfolio of top brands.  She has also been recognized multiple times as a top African-American in corporate America.   However, it was toward the end of her stint at Hallmark when Kim reached a mid-career “malaise” inflection point. — and felt complacent, unsatisfied, and overwhelmed with an empty feeling of unfulfilled dreams.  Therefore, Kim transformed that feeling of malaise into mid-career “mastery” — and began maximizing her impact on the world by bringing to life all of her passions including an art studio, The Intentional Pause™ Project, and her line of special handcrafted gift quilts positioned as extraordinary keepsakes for self or others.    Her first piece was actually given to Ms. Oprah Winfrey! Kim also has 20 years of non-profit board experience, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for Big Lots Stores.  Kim is also a proud member of the The Executive Leadership Council (ELC), Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Jack and Jill of America, Inc., The Links, Incorporated, and the 2017 Class of Henry Crown Fellows within the Aspen Global Leadership Network at The Aspen Institute. She also received her BA in Accounting from Fisk University and her MBA from Vanderbilt University, and lives in Kansas City with her husband, Nikki, and their daughter Piper. Kim's story is definitely a beacon of inspiration for anyone who is feeling stressed and stuck in their career… And who desires to weave together their purpose, passions, and professional experiences into a meaningful path forward at any age.

When HollyAnne was caring for her babies and in the throes of post-partum depression, quilting was what she did to “feed her soul,” and her online quilting community was her soft place to land. Once she discovered modern and modern-traditional quilting, she quickly fell down the rabbit hole, and upon watching a free motion quilting class online, her passion took on a life of its own. “Something about it really spoke to my soul. It really reminded me of the motion of brushstrokes and Impressionism and modern Impressionist paintings, which was always my favorite era of art.” While she was building a small business selling t-shirt quilts through her Etsy shop, she continued her exploration of modern quilting, going to her first QuiltCon in 2017. It was there she witnessed free-motion quilting in person. She describes her time there as magical and managed to pass out a box of business cards to start building community. The event, which she refers to as a “breath of fresh air,” was the thing that set her education company String and Story into motion. As a result of her passion, commitment and love of teaching, the community quickly attracted an international following. (3:46 -10:35)HollyAnne soon created a blog on Instagram followed by Quilting Rock Stars, a String & Story community on Facebook, which attracts people from around the world. “What started as my little feeble attempt to just have a place to talk to other people who liked quilting, turned into a real community where folks would share about stuff going on with their families, their health challenges… and it's been incredible.” She talks about the power of community, and how this virtual community has been a lifeline through some very dark times. (13:30   – 17:38)HollyAnne views her live String & Story sessions on YouTube and her Rock Stars group as an old-time quilting circle gone viral.  It's a place where people can pull up a chair, tell stories and be real. “I really believe that if I can be leading with love, and how I lead my community, then we can navigate all the hard things that are gonna come our way.” (13:30   – 24:54)As she continues to share her journey with us, HollyAnne talks about making quilts for kids with cancer, the genesis of String & Story, her inspiring Rock Stars, and her new store in Duluth.  During this casual conversation, her humanity and love of quilting shine through.
