Monday's show featured Jaime Ruckel. Jaime is known for running her own Sewcial Bee Facebook page and The Sewcial Bee Etsy shop, where she sells some very unique patterns, including slippers for the entire family, specialized caps to sew for welders, bikers, and more! Jaime is also founder of the Facebook Sew it's for Sale group, where fellow sewing enthusiasts can buy and sell sewing related items. It's a popular spot for finding fabric treasures and for selling your stash.
Jaime and I had a delightful conversation that lasted well over an hour. Live chat during the show was full of active, fun, and friendly, folks!
This post includes a few highlights and links we talked about during the show. You'll also find the video posted here too. If you come up with any questions while watching please feel free to leave them here and I'll make sure they get answered.
