    LOVED this first episode and looking forward to future ones. One question that I didn't hear get answered..what sewing technique would Kenneth like to learn? Inquiring minds want to know!!

    I really enjoyed listening to the podcast this morning during my walk. Good format, and Kenneth is very entertaining. You asked for ideas for the discussion of sewing topics, and my topic would be sleeve insertion. Since learning to sew with knits, I have used flat insertion, sewing the sleeve in before doing the side/underarm seam. I have also used this on wovens and it seems to work. Why not? it's the same sleeve in the same armscye, how can it matter whether it goes in flat or in the round? Would love to hear this discussed! Thanks so much for all you do.

    I enjoyed this very much. Especially the bit about getting the right fit, something I have had trouble with since having three babies and going through menopause. I tried on my own (even have Kenneth's Moulage CD book), but finally went to a few Palmer-Pletsch classes. I learned I could buy a size 16 instead of size 22 and do a very full bust adjustment. Even though the instructor did call my fitting shell the franken-pattern, I now can make shirts that fit, and not have oversize shoulders!

    What a great podcast! I love reading and listening to Professor King, my only complaint? I would like the podcast twice a month instead of once!
