The Sara Project

Sara's so sweet I had to have her on the show twice in one month. She prepared boatloads of wonderful content to share, and I promise you this is going to be another phenomenal episode. 

If you're familiar with Sara, you know she has really killer style. Her looks are always stunningly on-trend and a little bit daring, so I knew right away she would be the perfect person to talk about the top 6 sewing trends for fall this year. 

If you're still searching for fall sewing inspiration, this episode is for you. Even if you've got lots of ideas already, this episode is for you, because Sara is so lovely to chat with you won't want to miss hanging out with us - promise. Listening back to this episode, it feels exactly like two girls geeking out about sewing things, which makes me smile. That's what Maker Style is all about!

Sara's a sweetheart, so settle in for a fantastic episode that's bound to leave you feeling inspired.
