Episode 2 - FENETRES - All about sewing.

Hello and welcome to another episode of ……. Fenetres


Today, like everyday during the pandemic, I’m at home and right now in my backyard which is also shared with mother in law Joan MCordic who lives in the main level apartment of our duplex in Toronto. I’d like to pay her a visit to talk about the process of sewing. So, let’s go. Credits and references:
