Were you listening or did you miss May’s episode? Don’t worry either way, you can catch the recording of the radio show any time! But in case you’re curious, here’s what you missed:
We had some awesome guests on this month (well, like we do every month ;). May’s guests included Suzannah from Adventures in Dressmaking, a second time appearance from Suede, and brand new author Jenni Radosevich from I Spy DIY!
Our first guest was Suzannah from Adventures in Dressmaking who started her blog in 2009 after grad school to keep track of all the projects she was making. Suzannah’s mother worked making historic costumes for museums and such so from a very early age she had an amazing sewing room as a resource for getting her sewing projects started. How cool is that? Her very first blog project was a little strapless dress that she still loves making! Suzannah also told us that you live and learn, meaning that you can look back at old projects and see how much you’ve improved. Best tip? She loves dressing herself to portray a feeling and enjoys gathering inspiration from lots of places, but loves Mad Men. Then again, who doesn’t right? If you missed the show live, you can still hear Suzannah’s interview online anytime.
Next up was Jenni Radosevich from I Spy DIY! Congrats to Jenni for the brand new book release! Jenni worked at InStyle magazine for about 5 years and started DIYing her own stylish clothes and was one day asked to write an article which turned into a column! How exciting! Her awesome site spun off from there. After Random House approached her to write her book, she put it together in 4 months! Can you believe that? Out of curiosity we asked Jenni what her most popular project was on her blog and it turns out that bracelets and jewelry are crazy popular for her! For a sample of her style check out the newspaper clutch we also talked about on FaveCrafts.com. And finally Guest1166 won a copy of Jenni’s new book! You can hear Jenni’s interview anytime online.
Last, but certainly not least, was Suede! No surprise here, Suede really wanted to be an actor when he was little. Big surprise here, he went to Amish school where he first encountered sewing! Bet none of you would have ever guessed that! Some of you may remember Suede from his days as a contestant on Project Runway, he talked to us a little bit about the pressures put on you when you do a show like that. Suede also gave his knowledge about not giving up with it come to following your passions and told us that he has so many exciting projects in the works. We could not be more excited here at FaveCrafts to see what Suede is going to come up with so that we can all “rock fashion the way we rock it”! We loved all the fashion and style advice that Suede gave us and you should definitely listen in if you missed it the first time. Plus, big news! Suede Says is launching a fabric line this year! Listen in to the show for all the other Suede news.
