It’s Friday again on BTR, and you know what that means… time for fashion! This week, BreakThru Radio is hosting Charity Week, and we’ve been featuring articles, interviews, and video pieces that highlight various charitable organizations, and ideas for giving back. Joining us on today’s Sew & Tell is Elizabeth Carlock, who works with three different non-profit organizations in Uganda, Peru, and Texas, to better womens’ lives through craft work. Elizabeth is a designer in her own right, and has a beautiful jewelry line of both for-profit and non-profit collections. On today’s show, she’ll talk about how a high school project became her life-long passion and company, her role with each of the three non-profits, and her future plans for Elizabeth Carlock Designs.

Plus, an awesome music mix today with new tunes from The Ladybug Transistor, Junior Boys, and Fool’s Gold, mixed in with some older-but-goodies from Camera Obscura, Belle and Sebastian, and Yeasayer. So stick around… it’ll do you good!
