Fun news! I’ll be on the Martha Stewart show this week!
Yesterday I visited the Martha studios to tape a segment demonstrating how to sew the One-Hour Skirt from my book, Sewing in a Straight Line. The thing about this skirt (like all the clothing in my book) is that you make it to fit your own body measurements, so it can be made for a person of any size, from baby to adult. Martha recently had her first grandchild (a baby girl), so the producers wanted to show how to make the skirt for a baby or child.
So, Martha and I got down to business and sewed up two tiny baby skirts. It was great–we laughed, we cried, we sewed, we made French seams. The episode will air tomorrow, Friday December 16, at 10am on the Hallmark Channel. So tune in then to see how our skirts turned out!
Here is where I would love to show you a zillion amazing behind-the-scenes shots, but tragically I barely took any pictures–there was just too much going on. But my mom (who came with me for the taping, hooray!) did get a few…
Martha answering audience questions after the taping. Fun fact: she wore yoga pants with her sweater and heels, since her legs aren’t visible during the show (and I assume the heels for height/posture). Another fun fact, she was spotted in her office/dressing room doing yoga before our taping.
So tune in tomorrow, 10:00am on the Hallmark Channel, to watch me sew with Martha! Eeeep!
