Let me start by saying this opportunity to be on the show completely came out of left field. I received an email from a show producer on a Tuesday evening. The producer told me that she wanted to talk to me about sewing, Sewplicity, and the possibility of appearing on their show. I replied to the email early Wednesday morning and promptly at 9am received a call from the producer. We chatted a bit and within 30 minutes I was booked for the taping on Thursday. THURSDAY! The following day!
Needless to say, the rest of my Wednesday consisted of shopping for a colorful outfit to wear (they tell you to wear bright colors). The only saving grace of this whirlwind scheduling was that I really didn’t have that much time to be nervous! I needed to be at the studio by 9am on Thursday for hair and make-up (yeah, how cool is that?!), so I woke up at the crack of dawn, although I really didn’t sleep the night before anyway, to catch a train into NYC.
Once we were onstage and sitting in front of the studio cameras and audience everything becomes a blur in my memory. It was all a bit overwhelming and my adrenaline was working overtime. My friends asked me after the taping what Katie asked and I honestly couldn’t remember!
The past month has whizzed by and I still can’t believe this really happened. You have to understand, I’m a quiet, keep to myself, comfortable in the background kinda girl. Always have been. Always will be! Being on national TV is a GIGANTIC step outside my comfort zone. I wasn’t even sure I was going to watch the show because I was so nervous about the whole thing! Of course once it aired I couldn’t resist, and I was so relieved that my nerves did not give themselves away like I thought they may have!
So here it is if you missed it…the video clip of the segment I shared with Shakira and Shannon on Katie’s Show.
I am so honored to have been asked to appear on Katie’s show and to have met these entrepreneurial women. This was totally unexpected and a moment in my life which I will remember forever.
I can’t thank my family, friends, customers and fans enough for supporting me throughout the past few years of running Sewplicity. I look forward to many more years of sharing my sewing passion with all of you!
