My Favorite: Podcasts

1. Love to Sew

      My newest favorite sewing podcast is these two Canadians - Helen and Caroline - who are both successful fashion entrepreneurs themselves. Caroline is the owner of Blackbird Fabrics located in Vancouver. Helen is a sewing pattern designer of Helen's Closet. Together these two tackle topics such as the lack of larger sizing in sewing patterns, all-you-need-to-know about interfacing, the best sewing machines, and about the world of #Sewcializing.


2. Business SHET

     Mimi G is one of the original and most successful sewing bloggers. She has created her own patterns as well as launched patterns with Simplicity, created online sewing classes, and she most recently launched a series of fashion challenges on Bluprint. To top it off she has an amazing podcast called Buisness S.H.E.T. In this series she breaks down business for sewing bloggers and business owners. Grab a notebook and pen because you will want to write down all of her great advice.


3. SFD - The Successful Fashion Designer

     Heidi, the creator of Sew Heidi, has created several easy outlets to help a designer of all stages. On her podcast, SFD, she talks to people of the fashion industry regarding their specialty and experiences. She offers great tips on how to move towards working for yourself as a business owner as well as how to be a more competitive freelancer.


4. Fashion Hags

     If you're looking for fashion information as well as a few laughs, look no further than this Canadian trio. Abby, Evan, and Katie talk to designers about what they do and what they love about fashion. As well as what's currently going on in fashion trends and my favorite, encompassing ideas of fashion such as discussing Designers as Brands, What is a Trend and Why do they Happen?, and Vintage Shopping advice. What I also love is how they talk about their current obsessions; that's how I discovered the movie The Seamstress.


5. Pop Fashion

     This tag-team duo, Lisa and Kaarin, have created their own news source for the fashion industry. Told through a 50 minute podcast these two women are great at breaking down big ideas into the most important details. They discuss the latest fashion events such as Fashion Week, companies that are facing bankruptcy, and what fashion houses have new creative directors.
