Being a beginner is as fun as it is intimidating. Not all beginners have the same amount of knowledge or the same amount of confidence. In this episode, Sarai and Haley share three levels of beginners, how to identify where you currently fall, and how to pick patterns that help you grow your skillset.
Episode 48 gets stuck into the sizable ‘sister' topic of how to knit more sustainably! I had the pleasure of talking to knitting podcaster, community leader, marketing expert and former yarn-shop owner, Saskia de Feijter from Ja, Wol and A Smaller Life podcast as the second part of our recent podcast swap. She explained to me how as a beginner knitter, I could approach knitting from a more sustainable angle. Then we dug into the similarities between our respective crafts and communities, and also the differences (spoiler: there aren't many!). I particularly loved exploring the topic of stashes and resource accumulation, as well as Saskia's awesome tips for using up leftover yarn. Saskia is such a fun, interesting and knowledgeable person, and I think she has the loveliest voice! Support the podcast over on Patreon!

Although not a common combination, Mae's father was a career Marine and an avid sewist. A direct descendant of Betsy Ross, he was born into a family of sewists, including his mother and grandmother. Mae grew up watching her father create quilts on his BERNINA machine and it was his love of sewing that inspired her to start sewing at the age of six. Mae was nine when her mother caught her cutting up her skirts and enrolled her in sewing school. Even as a child, Mae was frustrated by the “by the book” approach of her sewing teacher. Although she had ideas for making her own clothes her way, the school's strict adherence to the formal pattern-driven designs prevented her from doing so. Today, she's free to create her designs on her terms, whether she's sewing from a pattern or bringing her own vision to life. Mae's passion for sewing is driven by her belief in body positivity. “I know everyone is shaped differently. Some people are taller, shorter, or larger in some areas, and smaller in other areas. I want everyone just to look good, no matter what shape they are in. So I do a lot of custom work.” Mae's clients run the gamut—some are thin with very few curves, some are larger and curvaceous, but the one thing they have in common is that they all look great in the clothes Mae designs for them. Mae often makes clothing for her clients, without ever meeting them. She discusses their style and asks questions to help her determine the best shapes, like “are you bigger on the top or the bottom,” or “what are your measurements.” If a person doesn't know their measurements, she asked them what size they usually wear and goes from there. Mae's designs are comfortable and classic and are inspired by the timeless styles of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Whenever she makes a dress or an outfit for someone, she wants it to be something they'll look great in 10 years from now; something that is high-quality and won't out of style. She believes that clothes should make a woman feel good about herself every time she wears it. (1:46-8:38)Mae has had a lot of challenges in her life, including being hospitalized for COVID. When her doctor told her she had a 50/50 chance of surviving, she decided then and there that if she survived, she was going to always make time for what she loved, and that was sewing. And that's exactly what she did. When Mae isn't working at the fire department, she spends her time immersed in sewing: from learning more about it to experimenting with different tools to creating new designs. She shares how different life challenges led her to where she is today and says that her dream for the future is to sew full-time and to help everybody look and feel their best in their clothes, and comfortable in their own skin. (8;40-26:27)If you'd like to reach out to Mae after hearing her inspirational story, you can go to her website and email her or find her @mae_burrows on Instagram.If you know someone who has an outstanding story that should be shared on this podcast, drop Meg a note to email@example.com or complete the form on our website.
Sarai and Haley talk about why it's hard to pick the best projects that challenge you without frustrating you, how to identify the skills you need, and our favorite method for learning new skills, project by project.

Best friends Christi and Kelly are back to discuss episode two of their hit series ‘Dance Moms,' where the daughters head to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to perform their “Electricity” number. The moms are as concerned as ever about the age-appropriateness of their daughters' dance moves and outfits, especially in religiously-conservative Lancaster, PA. Abby is overstepping her bounds and confusing her role as dance teacher with a role as parent. Though Kelly and Christi are the only two to be seen complaining about it, there is resentment among all the moms about the special praise and attention lavished on Maddie, and the pressure it puts on the other girls. Sewing the girls' costumes before competitions was a job–and a source of drama– unto itself. Tune into this week's episode to hear about the debut of Abby's infamous flip flip tee-shirt, and the exclusive stories that never made it to air, like what Cathy threw at Christi, and why Abby called Kelly white trash. Quotes “All the little girls who were our kids' age are now watching as young adults and they all like us moms now. Whereas Before, they only liked the kids..” (5:03-5:10- Christi) “Abby says we as moms live through our kids and that we shouldn't go to the competitions. And the kids should do what she says, not what their mom says. Who tells a kid that?”(13:55-14:11 | Kelly) “Abby says that when kids from other studios come to her studio, no one knows terminology and I do agree with that. She definitely taught terminology.” (46:39-46:50 | Kelly) “That is legit. Abby used to do it on Sunday nights when there were no cameras around, and we would be coming home and all of us would be on the bus ready to kill ourselves, and she would be screaming at the bus driver for going in the wrong direction.”(1:03:10-1:03:20 | Christi) “It was only episode two and Abby already wanted us gone.” (1:15:28-1:15:31- | Kelly) Links Follow Christi on IG: www.instragram.com/christilukasiak Follow Kelly on IG: www.instagram.com/kellylhyland Subscribe to our Patreon for access to our After party episodes:: www.patreon.com/backtothebarre Subscribe to us on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC50aSBAYXH_9yU2YkKyXZ0w Thank you to Ashley Jana for allowing us to use Electricity!!

Bill Schroeder III has been around quilting since he was a young boy selling buttons at their AQS booth at the Quilt Show in his hometown of Paducah, KY. When his grandparents launched the AQS Quilt Contest in 1985, it was the first contest in the industry to award a $10,000 prize. When Meredith and Bill Schroeder started hosting Quilt Week 36 years ago, young Bill was right there helping his dad hang signs. When his family decided to sell the business, he and his brother-in-law James went in 50/50 and purchased the company. They did so to continue the family legacy, and to ensure that National Quilt Week would continue. It had been canceled the past two years due to Covid, so Bill worked tirelessly to ensure the show would go on. You can hear the pride in Bill's voice as he shares the history of AQS, National Quilt Week, the National Quilt Museum, and American Quilter Magazine. As he details his hopes and plans for the future, and for the different shows around the country, he shares his desire to make Paducah the biggest show it can be. “For me, you know Paducah is home and I just tried to do my best to get everybody back here.” Bill is committed to keeping quilters and their amazing creations front and center. His goal for AQS is to reach 70,000 members by 2024 and he's working hard to make that happen. He's working with sponsors, the mayor of Paducah, the Secretary of State, and the residents of Paducah to make the community stronger, and to build greater awareness and support for the quilting industry. When Bill rolls the dice, his team rolls it with him, and he credits them with making National Quilt Week the best experience it can be for attendees. [8:23-15:40]As Bill continues to share his story, it's apparent that the Schroeder family values have permeated every generation. He talks about the strong bond and connection they all have, and how their support of AQS and Quilt Week continues. It was a thrilling moment for everyone when the doors opened in Paducah this year and the quilters walked through them. Over 30,000 quilters came, sharing their love of quilting and their longing for community. Bill shares how much the support of his family and the hard work and dedication of his staff means to him, and humbly expresses his gratitude to everyone who made Quilt Week such a resounding success. [15:50-21:09] Be sure to tune into this engaging podcast to learn more about the Schroeder family, AQS- the internationally renowned organization, and the power of community. If you'd like to reach out to Bill personally, you can email him at email@example.com.If you know someone who has an outstanding story that should be shared on this podcast, drop Meg a note to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form on our website.
