This week’s guests are Emily of Self Assembly Required and Jen of Gingerthread Girl!
A lot of people tell us that Stitcher’s Brew Podcast is like having friends in their sewing room (and we LOVE hearing that – thankyou!) – we think this one might just be our most ‘hanging out with friends’ one yet – in fact I think all of us forgot we were recording and just did what we did best – natter on about all things sewing!!
Fans of indie patterns, online fabric sellers and any kind of sewing or craft are going to love this one as we talk about everything from their sewing stories to their favourite sewlebrities!
We do also cover the reason we got them on the podcast sofa – blogging VS. vlogging – as they both excel at both of these things and give us all tips and tricks to help us all become pros!
Hope you have the kettle on – cos 4 giggly friends are about to come over and talk for Britain!! 😉
This episode is sponsored by Pfaff who make amazing sewing machines for all styles. There are overlockers, coverstitch machines and embroidery machines for beginners to keen sewers. We both love Pfaff machines and couldn’t recommend them enough – they sew through any fabric like it’s quilting cotton, that’ll be down to the IDT, the integrated walking-foot.
Go visit their amazing range at www.pfaff.com

Jen is the lovely lady of Gingerthread girl with a popular blog and vlog.
