Sew Daily Live Recap! October 7, 2016

Recently we began airing  on Facebook quick live videos of what we love sewing, fun products, contributors and more. Being in front of people, potentially a lot of people can be a bit intimidating to say the least. These Facebook Live events are much like live TV, there’s no turning back once you hit the LIVE button. That being said it’s actually kind of fun!


This time I had Amanda Carestio join in and, I have to say having a co-host is much less stressful. Amanda and I could talk all day long about sewing. This feed lasted a bit longer than the rest but, I think it went well. I heard there was an issue with the sound and I apologize for that. Next week we’ll be miked! And, a big thank you goes out to Dreux who takes the technical worry out of these things. He even had a fancy light in there so we would look super awesome for you all. Next time, we’ll sound great too!

We talked about a lot of things. I would like to list here the products, fabric, patterns etc. that we talked about and some of the questions we threw at you. Feel free to leave any comments here or on the actual Facebook live feed post.
