    Love it!
    There’s a great mix of practical tips and insight into the wider sewing community. I am learning a ton! I love that it is informative and I get your awesome personalities shining through. Listening makes me think and smile every time!
  • Sew Shannon
    There are not enough good podcast regarding sewing. This one is pretty good, however stop the useless giggles and dragging outer your last syllables. It makes the podcast less professional.

    Information & Knowledge
    Listening to this podcast has made me keep a pen & paper close! I do review the show notes. I have been introduced to others who sew, craft & design items related to sewing. There are so many new Instagrams sewers that I now follow. I’m learning a ton of sewing related info. Inspired to sew more and be happy with all of my new garments. I’ve sewn for many years, but the podcast makes me want to create more & more. Thanks for your work with the podcast, keep up the good work.

    They bring the sewing community together!
    I absolutely love Helen and Caroline. They really bring the community together and I love how much fun they have together while recording the podcast. I always learn something new from them! And I love how they are body positivity—it is so important and sewing can play a big role in that so I’m glad they have a body positive framework for the show. I’m a Patreon contributor and am so glad I donate to the show! Keep up the amazing work!

    Can we all be friends?
    Hello hello. If you’re a sewist, please listen! Where I live doesn’t really have a sewing community, but when listening to Love to Sew I feel like I do indeed have a sewing community, although it’s virtual and not local. I am a beginning sewist, and while I’m sure I could have figured everything out without Love to Sew, I’m sure glad I didn’t. First time sewing with knits? Listen to the episode right before. Jeans? There’s an episode for that! It gives me so much confidence that I can sew anything... and so far I’ve worked through a lot of skills with Love to Sews help (with the help of my well used seam ripper).

    Stop using the word “like” in every sentence—almost every other word. Very irritating.

    My Favorite podcast
    Love to Sew is my favorite podcast. I am middle-aged and nearing retirement. I grew up sewing, then got too busy with life, parenthood, and career to make time for sewing. Helen and Caroline have drawn me back into what I love about all things sewing. Listening every week reminds me that I am part of a very creative tribe. Caroline and Helen are our glue. Thank you for inspiring and connecting us!
    Where are links in show notes?
    I love this podcast but I don’t know where links are?

    Great listen
    I love having good conversation to listen to when I'm working at my machine. My first listen with this podcast was with Meg of Sew Liberated and I was so inspired afterwards. What a great communal space to help one another in the making and creative process.
  • Ali Moncrieff
    Happy new listener
    I just discovered this podcast after following an instagram thread (I’m not even sure where it started but it had something to do with the Cheyenne tunic by Hey June!) and I’m basically in heaven now when a new one comes out. The diversity of topics and folks interviewed and Helen & Caroline’s humor and the gigantic well of sewing wisdom & techniques & rich resources. I’m just over the moon. Thank you so much for this offering, it’s golden!

    A Must-Listen for Home Sewers
    Never before have I heard of home sewers so connected in the world of garment sewing. This is a must listen for all home sewers who are looking for advice, challenges, and community.
  • RayinBoston
    More than sewing
    Caroline and Helen are wise, articulate and self aware. They are so knowledgeable about sewing, and they promote sustainability, diversity and compassion. Their voices are my comforting companions. Plus great show notes - “thank you Sam!”

    Geek out on sewing!
    I LOVE this sewing podcast! Caroline and Helen are my sewing heroes. I’ve learned so much from listening to all the episodes (I’ve bought an overlocker after listening to that episode numerous times. I love using it! Thanks for the pep talk 🤣). Please make your guys those animal capes they talked about.
  • KristyMiddleUSA

    Full of helpful info, well thought-out interviews, and inspiration for sewing and life in general. Listening to Helen and Caroline is like hanging out with friends while you sew.

    Time and energy well spent!!!
    Due to some pretty crazy life circumstances over the last two years (son diagnosed with leukemia - blood cancer), my “creative time” has been spoken for and I haven’t had the time or energy to spend actually being creative! However, to keep my brain engaged and my creative soul fed, I began listening to podcasts and watching YouTube videos. The one podcast that I have not gotten enough of has been Love To Sew!!! Once I tuned in for the first time, I was hooked. I am learning, being inspired and encouraged and simply enjoying the conversation. I feel like Helen and Caroline (and Sam too!) really pour their heart and souls into their pod cast. Their energy into engaging awesome guests is energies well spent. Love to See offers a VAST array of guests, topics, viewpoints and interests. Keep it up! We still have 9 months of these 2.5 years of chemo treatments left for my sweet son and you’re the bright spot to my Tuesday morning drives to bring him to the hospital! I just wish I had found the show sooner...I could be all caught up by now! 😂😂
  • debbayyyy

    Great, fun, inspirational podcast for this listener, who is returning to her sewing machine for something more than just altering and mending family clothing. Love it. I am so very thankful to have discovered Love to Sew!

    Refreshing my Skills
    I listen to Ed Tech podcasts for work and when I decided to take up sewing again I realized that there must be podcasts about sewing and quilting. Love to Sew has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts! I’ve even gone back to the beginning to listen to most of the old ones. Thanks ladies, you are incredible. I’m catching up on what I’ve missed out on for the past twenty-five years.

    I’m so happy to have found this podcast! The hosts are awesome and knowledgeable and entertaining. I don’t have any friends who sew but listening to this podcast I kind of feel like I do!

    Love the show
    Great informative podcast. I am new to sewing garments but not new to sewing. The ladies make it not so intimidating to dive in and sew any garment.
  • GigiMadeIt
    Best Sewing Pod!
    Caroline & Helen are so positive and have a great collaborative dynamic with one another, the people they interview, and their listeners. They’re open, inclusive, welcoming, and informative. Their tone is encouraging and humorous, never judgey or snobbish. I love all of their episodes, from their interviews with guests, to just the two of them, to the reader feedback sessions. Keep them coming, ladies!

    You will have two new friends after listening
    I love listening to this podcast. The shows are so informative. Helen and Caroline host interesting guests and share valuable information about sewing techniques and sewing in general. The best part is Helen and Caroline are so authentic. After listening to the podcast I wish I lived near them so I could go out for coffee and catch up as friends!
  • GusterGurl
    Sewing motivation
    Not only is this a great podcast about all things sewing I also find it to be great motivation. Sometimes I want to sew but just can’t get started, one episode of Love to Sew gets me excited about sewing and I find I’m ready to get my machine out.
  • snoozinkay

  • Knparrish
    Love it!
    I recently discovered this podcast & love it! They cover beginning sewing to improving your skills & advanced projects. They’ve done shows on how to get your creative spirit back-your “Sewjo” and one where they talk about how to overcome stumbling blocks. They’re warm, fun and their love for sewing really shines through in the show. They’ve rekindled my love of sewing!

    Friendly and inspiring

  • doctoramazingyarnandknitting
    Love “the laughing girls”
    My kids get to listen to a lot of my favorite podcasts in the car. This is my 6 year old daughter’s favorite. She calls it “the laughing girls.” I love to listen to these best friends talk about life and sewing. Makes me feel like I have sewing friends. I have only been garment sewing for 8 months, but I have taken off with great enthusiasm and ambition (jeans! Bras! A blazer!) partly because of the pep talks from my buddies Helen and Caroline.

    Best podcast in the world!
    This was one of the first podcast I listened to when I first discovered the podcast world last year. I felt like I discovered the best thing in the world. Since then, I’ve listened to other podcasts and it just reaffirmed my original opinion. If you love to sew, you will love it even more after listening to Caroline and Helen. You can actually feel their passion for sewing and friendship through their words. I have not only learned more about sewing, but also about other sewists from around around the world. They are generous with their guests and listeners. One day I hope to meet them in person so I can tell them in person how much they have enriched my life. They are the best.
