  1. Hey Helen – I’ve seen you link a few times to German blogs – do you speak German? I do, but I’ve never really gone searching for German sewing blogs…I’m busy enough reading all sorts of English blogs! Just curious 🙂

    1. Hi Maggie! I don’t speak german, unfortunately! What happened was I stumbled on one german blog, and then it linked to another, and so on and so forth. Now, bloglovin’ often recommends them to me because it probably thinks I speak German, too! I rely on google translate to read them, but at least I don’t need to speak the language to enjoy the amazing sewing photos 🙂

  2. Thanks for the shoutout, Helen! I just listened to your podcast last night–I was excited to see that you were on there! You did a great job.
