I finally got around to listening to your podcast today & can relate to your bag making on so many levels! I just published my first pattern last week, it's a market bag I designed & have begun to sell them! Check it out at my blog, I love your podcast, keep up the good work

Hi Jean,
I am a new listener. I downloaded all of your episodes, but listened to the last first today. I also make a lot of tote bags, but only have since last year and have been using the same pattern (Favorite Things Eco-Market tote) over and over. I have made some changes (and fixes) to the pattern and can pretty much make it in my sleep. Your podcast really motivated me to look at some other patterns and move on. I also want to look at the books you discussed. I hope they have them at the library.

You can see one of my recent totes at:

I look forward to listening to your previous podcasts. Thanks for your hard work on this podcast. I appreciate it.
