Pati Palmer returns as a guest on Sewing With Nancy with the second episode of Jackets for Real People. What a pleasure it was for me to learn from Pati! Now, you too can learn from the best of the best. Just click and watch!
Spending time with Pati to plan and record the 2-part series was a pleasure. Warm, charming, and forthcoming are the terms that best describe her. I thought that asking her a few questions would be a way for you to get to know her too. Enjoy my chat with Pati!
