For this year's first official fall broadcast of Sew & Tell, I found the perfect accessory that will help you hold onto summer a little longer, even through the dead of winter. Shana Aldrich Ready is a Maine-based designer, whose sleek, contemporary line of bracelets, The Ropes, are created from made-in-state marine ropes and hardware. If you've ever been down to the harbors and lobster docks on the coast of Maine, you'll recognize the weave of these bright, colorful pieces, and their stylishly bold appeal. On today's show, Shana will share about her experience growing up in Maine, her time designing apparel in New York, and what ultimately led her back to Maine and to The Ropes. Plus, a soul set with music from Sharon Jones and Betty LaVette, the latest from L.A.'s He's My Brother She's My Sister, and more. So stick around and get fashionably knott-y with The Ropes and BreakThru Radio!
