Podcast Episode # 77: Melissa Mora

Melissa Mora on the Crafty Planner podcast

When I first started making clothes, I found Melissa Mora also known as MellySews through her website. As a former teacher, Melissa uses her educational background to produce helpful, well photographed and researched tutorials. (Check out her latest tutorial for a bolster pillow!). After seeing Melissa’s new book, Sundressing, I was excited to have her as a podcast guest.

During our conversation, we talk about:

  • Her sewing journey
  • Her most valuable sewing resources
  • The learning process behind her new book, Sundressing
  • Secrets to balancing work and family
  • Her thoughts on the television series, Friday Night Lights, and Austin
  • How the Pattern Anthology collaboration works
  • and so much more…

I hope you enjoy the episode!
