The Power of Periscope
We started off as individuals spread out across countries and are now a vibrant, supportive, creative community. Sewists, dressmakers, crafters, and patternmakers who all have the same thing in common; we were brave enough to hit the go live button on Periscope. Well, most of us, Pericrafters is an inclusive community after all.
I love that Periscope as a platform lets you decide how you want to use it. You are given a lot of freedom to broadcast what you want, at what time, how often, and even who you want to broadcast to. The real secret why the platform is such an amazing one is that it gives anyone who wants it a place to let their voice be heard, and the comments help the communication be two-way. This interactivity makes it, along with other live streaming platforms like Snap Chat and Blab, a game changer. These apps and similar ones have been around for quite a while, but the rate at which they are used, and their content is consumed is astounding.
That Sewing Blab’s Interview with Chanda Kempson-Brock of the Pericrafters
On this week’s That Sewing Blab, we interviewed Chanda Brock @designsplusme. She administers the Facebook group the Pericrafters along with Karen Baxter @nikaidesigns and That Sewing Blab’s co-host Alethia Hudson @sewmuchtalent. Chanda is a Periscoper and a blogger. Initially a paper crafter, Chanda has been focusing on sewing projects like men’s ties and children’s clothing. As she says in her blab interview she has been cheating on paper with fabric. If you want to learn more about her amazing Pop-Up Skirt Parties (PUSP) watch her on Periscope @DesignPlusMe.
