Is it too early to call the most unforgettable quote of this season of Southern Charm? Well, if it's wrong to give the title of most iconic catchphrase to "What's wrong with my sewing?" uttered by Craig Conover during his conversation with Naomie Olindo at Cameran Eubanks' baby shower, we don't want to be right.
Yes, Craig's passion for sewing is in full swing this season. But one fan wondered if his focus on sewing rather than his career was just a way to distract him from his lingering feelings for ex-girlfriend Naomie during Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Thursday night. But the always wise Cameran shot that idea down on WWHL and instead offered up an explanation for what Craig's sewing really means. Check it out in the above clip.
Naomie clarified her comments about Craig's sewing during a recent interview with The Daily Dish. "People think, 'Oh, why can't you support his sewing?' It had nothing to do with me not wanting a boyfriend who sews. I don't care at all about that. Hobbies are important, and I thought it was great," she explained. "The reason I had a problem with it was Craig is a procrastinator, and he was using sewing as a way to procrastinate doing things that he actually needed to do, you know, important things ... Instead of doing something that he had a deadline on or whatever, he'd just sit and sew all night."
Craig told The Daily Dish earlier this season that sewing "was very therapeutic" for him after he moved out of the home he shared with Naomie following their breakup and lost his garden and workshop where he spent time doing his other hobbies. Now it looks like Craig has turned that pain into a profession as he prepares to launch his very own line of throw pillows called Flawed Creation on Monday, April 30, according to his Instagram Story. "It's about embracing your uniqueness. I'm different, and yes, I was made fun of for it when I was little. But hey, just embrace it," Craig told The Daily Dish. "I want to reach people and let them know that if they just suck it up and make it through high school, everything works out. High school can really suck sometimes and people can be mean. Basically, everything that you're gonna be made fun of is going to make you awesome when you get to college, whatever you do. I'm kind of trying to figure out a way to let them know to be OK."
As far as how this will fit in with Craig's budding law career now that he has officially been sworn in to the South Carolina Bar, Craig told The Daily Dish that he's planning on doing 20 to 30 pro bono hours at the legal clinic in Charleston at first.
"It would kind of be irresponsible for me, I think, to jump right into it, pick up a whole bunch of clients. Right now, we're busy with other stuff at the moment. I enjoy helping people anyway. That's kind of why I got into law. And so if I were to do that, I think it would be pretty fulfilling," he shared. "I'm not really following everyone's advice of 'pick one thing and stick to it,' because, as I told them, it's not who I am, and so I'm finally just doing everything I want to do, so it's nice."
