This episode was a late bloomer.  Due to "reasons" (mostly cuz we couldn't get our act together) we had to delay this episode release by a day.  We discuss Stok cold brew coffee, the new season of Alone (TV show on History Channel), the Luna pants pattern by Made by Rae, Reversible Hobo Bag pattern sew along by Mrs. H, the Ruby Star Society Summer Quilt Along (Perfect Picnic Quilt) and a great bundle for this QAL by Hummingbird Lane Fabrics, the Sorento Bucket Hat pattern by Elbe Textiles, and Folkwear sewing patterns   Also, apparently there is a half-snail-half-leaf creature that Natalie tries to explain to me and all I want to know is does it have a slime trail or feet.  Feel free to listen while you work, drive, sip, sew, quilt, knit, crotchet, garden, fold laundry, run, walk or eat bonbons!  Enjoy xoxox

S1E25 Sewing Machine "Maintenancing" and "Reader" Recommendation Emails
00:50:14

In this episode Amie and Natalie talk about their ideas of proper machine maintenance.  Several iterations of the word "maintenance" are used incorrectly.  Quilters Select rulers are mentioned because they were recommended by a reader, and Amie shamelessly begs for a freebie to try.  The proper pronunciation for Toblerone is also googled and most-likely botched.  Listen while you work, sew, quilt, bake, drive, or eat!


MENTIONED IN THIS EPISDOE:
Stitch Supply Co. sells these quilt binding spools

S1E15 Practice Saying NO to Sewing Requests, Finding or Making Time to Sew, How The Sausage Is Made
00:54:30

In this episode, Natalie and Amie have a quick run-through of saying no to sewing requests.  Natalie uses the word "ergonomic" correctly this week!  Natalie's sister, Kat, sent in an email asking how the ladies find time to sew and quilt with kids.  And last but not least, the idiom "how the sausage is made" is discussed in terms of Natalie's husband spooking around while an episode is made.  So, is the episode the sausage?

00:38:32
In this episode, Amie and Natalie talk about their current sewing projects.  In addition, because they are recording remotely again this week, the ladies forgot that they were recording and thought they were just talking on the phone.  This lead to unscripted examples of just how authentic this podcast is.  You can't make this stuff up, folks.  Hey, we never promised you'd lern anything here, just that you'd have fun!

Mercie - thanks

__________

Fluid ounce vs. ounce via differencebetween.net

In its simplest possible explanation, a fluid ounce (abbreviated as fl. oz.) is used to measure fluids while an ounce (abbreviated as oz.) is for dry measurements. ... One pound (abbreviated as lb.) is equal to 16 ounces. It is hard to overlap or connect the measurements of a fluid ounce (volume) to an ounce (weight).

__________

Soak and Flatter via soak.com

Their ironing spray is divine!!  I (Amie) use the lundry soap to block my knitting, not the Flatter ironing spray.  I have used the ironing spray in the past as well.  10/10 would recommend!!

__________

Season of Love from RENT:

The correct lyric in the opening song for the musical Rent is: 525,600 minutes.  This refers to the number of minutes in a year (60x24x365)

S1E5 Sewing and Alterations for Others, To Pre-Wash or Not To Pre-Wash When Sewing or Quilting
00:50:27

In this episode, Amie and Natalie talk about sewing and alterations requests and how to say no to them.  Also, there is a lengthy discussion about whether to pre-wash fabric or not depending on where you bought it and what you will be making.  In addition, there are plenty of tangents and the customary nonsense.

SHOW NOTES:

The song Comfortably Numb is by: Pink Floyd, not Nirvana as Natalie led you to believe.

Amie has made between 10-15 quilts and Natalie has made 450 or so.  She wanted this ammended but I refuse.

The word that Amie was searching for for nearly 45 minutes was SIZING, which is not the same as starch.  Thanks Mom for reminding me!!  See info below via americandrycleaner.com

Q: What’s the difference between starch and sizing? Can spray starch be used in place of sizing?
A: Starch is used to stiffen fabrics such as shirt collars and cuffs, while sizing is used to add body, “crispness” and “hand” to garments. Starch is vegetable-based (it’s formulated from wheat, corn or rice), while sizing is a resinous solution that can be either vegetable- or plastic-based.
Because starch doesn’t satisfactorily adhere to thermoplastic fibers such as polyester, manufacturers often blend a plastic-based sizing agent and vegetable-based starch to impart stiffness to the synthetic fibers.
Starch and sizing alike can be added during the wetcleaning or drycleaning process, or they can be sprayed onto garments during the finishing process.
When starch is applied in place of sizing, the garment can become overly stiff, crease easily and wrinkle before and during wear. Because sizing adds body to fabric, it makes garments easier to finish, reduces wrinkling during wear, and keeps pleats and creases sharp.

S1E4 To Drink or Not To Drink, Obsessions, and A Very Pressing Matter
00:40:48

In this episode, Amie and Natalie talk about a plan to drink a gallon of water each day after buying matching water barrels online.  Also, listen to their new obesessions, like pin cushions and chocolate chips.  They've saved the best for last and discuss a very pressing matter: ironing vs. pressing and all that it entails.

SHOW NOTES:

The machine that Snoop Dogg hawks for making carbonated water at home is called the SodaStream.

The stick that we keep refering to as the "half hump" is actually called a Strip Stick.  Our apologies for that.

The movie This Is Spinal Tap is available for streaming on many services at this time.

Spinning seams will be discussed on a later episode, but can be googled for more information.

S1E3 Beanie Wearing = Cool, What Do You Listen to While You Sew? & Favorite Steps of Making a Quilt
00:47:07

In this episode, Amie and Natalie talk about indoor beanie hat wearing.  Also, listen to them discuss what they listen to while sewing and Amie's list of favorite podcasts.  The last topic entails listing the steps of putting a quilt together and what the best part is, but don't even think about this being a straight-forward list of steps.  It's riddled with tangents and sidenotes.

SHOW NOTES:


Perpetuity and perpetuality are discussed.  The correct term is most likely perpetually, so they were both wrong.

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
