Open Up with Jennifer Wiese

Jennifer Wiese is the founder of Brooklyn Sewing Studio. In this episode, she tells the story of putting on a major sewing event, and the unexpected benefits of being open to mistakes.

Jennifer Wiese had a dream. The founder of Brooklyn sewing studio Workroom Social wanted to create a weekend-long sewing event that brought a spirit of play and fun to sewing. In 2015, she hosted Camp Workroom Social, an overnight sewing camp for adults. She talks about why being present and open to imperfection is always better than fretting over mistakes - in sewing and in life.
