    Fun side note: I once saw a Don Cherry interview on tv and he actually has his own Fabricland membership card and goes and picks out his fabric for his jackets at his local Fabricland Store! He doesn’t sew them though, he has a tailor for that!
    I love this podcast so much! Words cannot express how much I love it. Thank you so much for doing this.

      Sandra – that IS a fun side note! I imagined he had them custom tailored and it totally makes sense that we would pick out the fabrics himself! I wonder what his closet looks like. I think I would pay to see that!
      We are so thankful for your support!
