    Another wonderful podcast! Gillian kindly sent out a post this morning reminding everyone she would be on the podcast this week with a link to it. It was every bit as joyful as I was anticipating. Another great giggle when Helen pointed out that Gillian is a “wham bam thank you ma’am sewist”. Hilarious. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since discovering sewing online. Thank you to both of you again for another delicious hour well spent!

    Oh my goodness, I am only half way through this episode and I LOVE GILLIAN, what a kind and inclusive approach to creating sewing community. Thank you for featuring her and thank you Gillian for your contributions to creating a much needed kind and inclusive corner of the sewing internets!

    Oh, one note, I meant to say “kind, inclusive, and accessible”!
