Liesl Gibson of Oliver + S, Thread Cult’s 25th guest

When I think about the past year, it’s a little hard to believe that I’ve had a baby, started a podcast, and that my day job as a freelance writer and editor has only gotten busier. When it rains it pours, and I’m not complaining, but it’s left me very little time for anything extra.

This past month I finally updated the Thread Cult website, which has been on my to-do list since I started the podcast at the end of 2012. The new website is an awesome spot to catch up on episodes you may have missed, and read all the posts I’ve written about them. And, of course, to listen to the most recent episodes, like this week’s with Liesl Gibson, founder of the fabulous children’s pattern company Oliver + S, as well as several women’s pattern and fabric lines. Liesl is such a warm and engaging person to talk with, and she has a lot of great insights into sewing, motherhood, and life in general.

I’ll still post updates here about  new episodes, but mostly I’ll be reserving DaughterFish for my own makes again. Eight months postpartum and I’m finally starting to feel like myself physically and mentally. Looking deep into the recesses of my closet I’ve been sorely disappointed lately.  What I want to wear just isn’t in there. I have a lot of ideas simmering for new pieces for myself and my little minnow. I’m excited to document them here again.  

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this week’s episode. It’ s a nice long one, perfect if you’re in the middle of a good sewing project. So head on over to Thread Cult to listen!
