    This show is very important! It helps in so many ways. It helps to connect with concept of community and building resilience. In addition it is humorous. In the times that we live in we need a podcast like this. And it is so obvious that Lisa has done her research and she is very widely read. I love how she engages her guests and shares laughter and shares how to continue to do the things that you love. I have found my community and I have let all my fb groups know about this show and I am sure that they will connect with Lisa and all of her wonderful guests!

    A joy! (Both the show and the host)
    Great show! Lisa is hilarious, enthusiastic, genuine, and an excellent conversationalist!

    The African Lookbook. Excellent, excellent exposé of that wax fabric from Europe and China. This is the very reason I stopped purchasing adinkra/waxed fabric years ago. #63, Jen Hewitt: Her story resonates with me (school experience, quilt guilds, knitting guild). Thanks for showcasing her, her books, products and services. I will look for her and keep her as a resource for services in the future. “We” black creators have always been here. The internet equalized everything. Traditional paths to be successful have been obliterated as we go direct to our clients/audience as opposed to going through previous “industry” gatekeepers and “dominant culture gatekeepers. ******** Congrats to the 1-year celebration of the podcast. I appreciate it showcases information from textile makers and creators by black women. We have always been here and still here. My brief story is I seriously began my sewing journey at my mom’s knee and sewing machine at 11 years old. I had been watching her and my aunties sew apparel for years and wanted to know this practice. I took one class in 7th and 10th grade and to this day, continue to learn. When I wanted to learn quilting, I was disappointed in the local quilt guilds since I wasn’t represented until I found “my tribe” with African American Quilters of Los Angeles, the first African American guild west of the Mississippi River. I loved the community and every city I’ve lived in since, I’ve looked for a group such as this and came up empty. Also, I’ve still to attend the National African American Convention and that’s on my bucket list since I will never attend the Houston quilt show again. Keep up the good work. H. Shelby

    Informative in so many ways.
    This podcast is thorough in exploring sewing topics and social issues. It’s a mix of sewing and activism. It’s a great place to learn about different sewing techniques & sewing styles and get different perspectives on our current social/political situations as well. It’s positive, energetic and a great listen.

    Inspiring and informative!
    Always learn something new from every episode.

    Easy recommendation
    Phenomenal podcast hosted by an insightful and articulate woman. This podcast holds appeal for those who do and don’t sew alike!
  • princessmax*
    I have followed Lisa Woolfork’s IG accounts for a long time and this podcast is such a helpful place to learn about the technical aspects of sewing.
  • the shizzile
    I heard your interview on Katie Couric and thought how wonderful you are. I love your passion to sew and can relate to your drive for the craft! During the pandemic I needed to see and started making masks with all the leftover fabric I had. Then went on to make quilts. I would love to sew for a cause. Social justice is important to me but don’t know how to combine it. Any suggestions? Keep up the great podcast!
  • Dianemac99
    Great podcast!
    Learning new and useful things about sewing! I mostly quilt but lots of the topics are helpful. The episode about custom fabric design sent me straight to my sewing room to look at my fabric stash and she is right - any fabric with mermaids etc is very white. Something I, of course, never noticed before (I’m white). Thanks for broadening my horizons and for the helpful information about sewing techniques.

    New ideas and relatable
    This podcast is amazing. I learn new things with every episode and feel connected to the broader sewing community.

    Social justice and sewing!
    This is my new favorite podcast! Lisa tells important stories and weaves together art, community, practical skills, and social justice. I learn about sewing and hear voices from across the country and the world. Loved, loved the recent episode about Wax Print, and inspired me to find an online screening to watch with my daughter. Thank you!!

    Informative show
    I truly use this show to curate my IG. She has on everyone I need to follow to learn the best about sewing and culture.
  • somefrills
    Great content
    Lisa interviews a wide variety of different sewers and mixes in her own perspective as an avid home sewer and whip smart academic. I always learn so much both about the craft and also how it fits into culture.
  • MMP345
    Sew good!
    Stitch Please is an interesting and fun podcast. Lisa asks great questions and the conversation that follows is engaging. I also enjoy her tips and knowledge of sewing tools!

    Stitch Please
    I love this podcast about all things sewing! Lisa is a great interviewer and has knowledgeable, fun guests. I subscribed the first time I listened. I loved the one about sew jo. She hits all my sewing buttons - in a good way.
  • Scamp Patel
    Great podcast, sewing is so empowering and I LOVE the space Lisa creates for conversation and craft with amazing guests who have such interesting stories.

    Identity Through Craft
    I so enjoy this podcast- not because it is easy, mindless background chatter to craft to, but because it is the opposite of that! Lisa pokes at the vacuum bubble that surrounds craft, to let in truth behind the traditions. It’s easy to say “keep your politics out of my craft”- but that is a blind statement. What the mainstream sewing industry promotes and makes available to the community (or DOESN’T promote or make available) is always embedded in cultural and political decision making. I learn so much each episode by listening to Lisa and her guests’ perspectives.
  • DarlingAgee
    An amazing Posdcast
    Lisa is such an amazing host. I have been listening to this podcast for about a year now and I have learned so much. She has amazing guests who have inspired me that as a quilter, I may not have known about before following only quilters. Now, because of her podcast, I have discovered more sewists who are so talented and smart.
  • Em of the new moon
    Great questions!
    Lisa asks her guests really interesting questions that expand the conversation to fun and unique areas. I’m hooked!
  • cook816
    So inspiring!
    Love this podcast! Super inspiring & great to listen to while I’m working in my studio.
  • DBoone59
    Great sewing/fiber podcast!
    I look forward to listening to each new release. The host does a great job of interviewing guests and contributes without dominating the conversation. The diversity of guests and topics related to all things fiber and sewing has given me fresh perspectives and that I wasn’t finding on other podcasts.
  • TravelingDesign
    Great for any sewer
    Lisa always asks the best questions, I learn something every week. Thank you!
  • Jetlgrif
    Love this!
    I’m a sewer and listening to all of the creatives featured in this podcast!
  • Shellysews
    Excellent Sewing Podcast
    The hosts are very knowledgeable about sewing and have a unique voice and perspective. Very humorous too! Have just listened to two episodes, and have already learned something new. PS: Looooved listening while cutting fabric!

    I Always Learn Something New!
    I love this podcast. I always learn something new! Such a delight to listen to.
  • Elaray
    So glad I found this podcast!
    I’m very happy to have discovered this pod cast. I will subscribe and listen while I sew (or knit) I especially loved learning about the Friction Colors pens. I’d used the Friction roller ball pens, but the felt tipped Colors are great for both marking fabric and paper (when I trace patterns). Love this podcast
  • NeelieC-N
    Inspiring and useful
    Even though I am not an expert sewist and I am not Black, I enjoy this podcast SO much! Not only does it focus on practical skills for sewing, it also deals with the emotional issues around creativity and self-discovery.
  • hopelovepeacejoy
    High Quality
    Like most sewists, I consume a lot of sewing content. This podcast is excellent. Black Lives Matter.
  • Nan316
    Stitch please
    I love this podcast! It’s a high energy podcast which is both informative and entertaining covering all aspects of sewing generally and sewing as it relates to the black community. I learn a lot from each episode and thank Lisa Woolfork. I highly recommend!
  • Lemonzestlife
    Content Galore and Inspiration to Boot
    Am personally tired of listening to sewing podcasts where the women are just chatting about their personal lives. This podcast is just chaulk full of content. It’s not just for black sewers but for all people who believe sewing should be inclusive and the world should be a more fair place (from dry cleaning prices onward). Keep up the good work- we love you!
  • MimiMama2Mac
    Sew Amazing
    I love Wednesdays! I get to listen to information in my sewing community. The guests are very relevant and the hostess is amazing!!!!
  • SewSweet
    BHMPatternDesigners Challenge Episode
    Awesome episode! The ladies really help you to understand why this challenge was created (and very much needed) for our sewing community! I’m so inspired and really looking forward to the challenge! Great work to all three of the ladies!
    Informative and entertaining
    I just learned about this podcast at the end of 2020 and have been listening to it so often! The host is so good at explaining complicated/visual sewing concepts in detail in an audio-only format. She is also so funny, especially in the interview episodes!
  • DeniseBabin
    Thoughtful and inspiring
    Lisa offers thoughtful commentary on sewing, race, and the intersection of the two. She chooses excellent guests and makes good use of their time. Highly recommended.

    Lisa is the best
    Came for the sewing, stayed for the politics and wisdom. You can tell Lisa is an educator- she is so encouraging and generous with her tips and tricks. So grateful for this resource!
  • vcmccall
    I am SO glad I found this podcast. I didn't know just how much I've needed a space & community like this until my first listen. 💖 🙂 I plan to go back & listen to every episode.

    Engaging and warm
    I love the blend of information and opinions. An intimate and educated podcast that speaks to the technical and personal elements of creative making.
  • Pod-listner-1789
    Great in about a dozen ways.
    Fun, ingenious, uplifting, serious, informative... I could go on. A great podcast and a great project.
  • Jaydenspop
    Talk about a safe space!!
    This podcast is exactly what black and brown creators NEED!! A space to hear and talk about everything without feeling the need to sensor oneself or water yourself down for fear of making someone uncomfortable by you just being your authentic self! I have been searching for more African American quilters and just to know I am not alone out here is so refreshing!!! But don’t get it twisted, this podcast is truly for everyone. From the not so organized person interested in paper planning to the maker who has been making and creating for their whole life, there is something here for everyone! I am so happy I stumbled upon Ms. Lisa in Instagram, this podcast is definitely the cherry, sprinkles and hot fudge on top!
  • Brethe3
