Podcast Episode #5: Jenelle Montilone of Trash N 2 Tees

One of the recurring themes in the garment sewing podcasts is the idea of textile sustainability.  Last year at Craftcation, I met Jenelle.  She was helping students using the supplied Bernina sewing machines.  I heard snippets about her work but never a full description.  After the conference, I looked up her website and discovered she is truly a textile recycling champ.  Luckily, she agreed to talk about her work for the podcast.

We talk about textile recycling, the start of her business and our shared love of gummy bears (although not the same brand! :))
