Back in the early summer when I was over in Portland, Oregon, I had the chance to meet up with Sarai at Colette – but what I didn’t tell you, was that we were also recording a podcast! Sarai is such an inspiration in the way that she’s leading the indie sewing market, and the expansion of Seamwork to include the Seamwork Radio podcast is a masterful – but totally logical – stroke.
Never one to follow the crowd, Seamwork Radio is quite different to other sewing podcasts – in fact, I’d venture to say that it’s *mostly* not about sewing. Instead, Sarai is talking to people involved in the sewing world about their lives, influences and stories. It makes for some soul-bearing moments, but I think it’ll be be really interesting – I know a few of the upcoming interviewees and I can’t wait to hear their stories!
On the first Seamwork Radio episode, I’m talking about growing up in different places around the world, the legacy of bullying, body image, and how I was a Malawian supermodel. I also say “like” way too much, so apologies in advance.
