When asked what they love most about today’s sewing community, our guest bloggers replied, “We love how open and accepting it is.” After listening to just one episode of Love to Sew, a fun weekly podcast about making clothes, sewing community and small business, you’ll be asking yourself how you ever got through a sewing project without hosts Helen Wilkinson and Caroline Somos. Covering topics like fabric 101, facing your sewing fears, or one of our personal favorites, how big is your fabric stash, you’ll be wishing you could hang out with these two by the end of their interview.
Today our #wcw is the talented illustrator Phoebe Wahl, whose art focuses on self love, comfort, nostalgia, and intimacy with nature and one another. She is a regular contributor to Taproot magazine, and her first children’s book, Sonya’s Chickens (Tundra) was awarded a Kirkus Star. Spoonflower sponsored her episode this week on our favorite podcast While She Naps with Abby Glassenberg. We hope you'll tune in to hear about Phoebe's fascinating life and career, and take advantage of the little surprise gift (!!) included in the podcast!
Phoebe works in a variety of mediums, from watercolor and collage to fabric sculpture, an obsession with detail, pattern and texture present throughout. You can explore all of Phoebe's designs in her Spoonflower shop.
