I'm normally plugged in to my headphones whilst I am doing creative work, which means I'm listening to podcasts, music or if I've really gone down a hole - and I'm being serious here - farmyard playlists on Spotify.
Sewn and Sown playlist is the playlist I pulled together as a part of Minimalist Machinist's amazing Makers Sounds project. You can listen to it here, but I highly recommend checking out some other makers/sewists/pattern designers playlists too. Their interviews are available on the link above.
If you too are a big listener, and like me it helps you to focus, then take a look at some of my favourites! I'll add to it as I come across more compilations, playlists and podcasts.
