Jenny Rushmore
On Episode 2 of Love to Sew, we’re interviewing Jenny Rushmore of Cashmerette Patterns. We ask Jenny about her sewing journey, her business, and the Curvy Sewing Collective. She also tells us the story of #cakewithcashmerette, and how sewing has helped her to love and accept her body, and inspire others to do the same.

    Hi Helen, Caroline (& Jenny!)
    Just discovered this podcast earlier in the week (yay for me, right when you’re brand new!) and I love it already. Been listening whilst I’ve been sewing up a storm!
    Just a little … thing. Jenny mentions that when it came to booking somewhere in Melbourne for her sewing class, “there’s nothing. I booked a church hall.” Well, I’m sorry but Jenny mustn’t have looked. We have the AMAZING Thread Den!! ( It’s in Fitzroy and has a sewing space, classes, and a small shop. It’s always Social Sunday! And I must say, this is one of the places that Gertie came to in May, and is coming back to in November (for social events and for sewing classes). I’m really sad that Jenny wasn’t made aware of Thread Den, but maybe we can let her know? We might be in Australia, but we’re a city of 4.7 million people, and there’s more than one place around for sewing enthusiasts 🙂
    Also, I love that you’re both in Vancouver. Van is my SOUL city and I would move in a heartbeat if I could. I love it to bits and try and get there when ever I can. When you mentioned meeting up for the first time at Spool of Thread, I literally squee’d. I took a class there last August (to make the Marianne dress – I just made my 5th…) and I love it!!
