Seamwork Radio: A shift in Mindset with Jacqui Palhegyi

Jacqui Palhegyi is the blogger behind Birds of a Thread, a sewing and ethical fashion blog. She’s always been passionate about issues of social justice. But it was on a trip to Egypt with her husband that an encounter forever shifted the way she thought about how her clothing was made – and what she could do about it.

So much great content! Thank you for continuing these podcasts. I look forward to each one. This one does not disappoint! (Also comments were closed on your article about leading as in introvert but I wanted to thank you for writing that as I have an introverted daughter and this really opened my eyes and helped me with watching for her limits!)

It looks like this episode isn’t showing up on Stitcher yet. Any idea when it might? Thanks!

We checked and it looks like the feed is working on our end, but Stitcher hasn’t updated it yet for some reason.

Hey Karla! We contacted Stitcher and had them look into it and it should be fixed now. :)
