I just got home from quilt retreat and have some stuff to talk about! Meanwhile, don't forget the Kimberly Einmo giveaway--be sure to enter by Wednesday, May 22! Also, here's the link for the Genesee Valley Quilt Show: www.geneseequiltfest.com.
In this episode, my interview with quilt designer, author, and teacher Kimberly Einmo and announcement about a giveaway sponsored by Craftsy. Visit www.quiltingfortherestofus.com for details.
Honey, I'm home! I'm back from AQS QuiltWeek in Paducah, KY, and lived to tell about it. More or less. In this episode, I describe my experiences in Paducah, including a meet-up with a listener, scalping tickets to a class, and a conversation with a very nice police officer. Oh, and quilts. Plus I announce the winners of my 3rd Podcastaversary Giveaway, and what's up for the next episode! Thanks for listening!

In this episode I update you on my progress with Laura Wasilowsky's Hand-Stitched Collage Quilts in Craftsy, make a mini-not-quite-an-announcement-yet about my Third Podcastaversary Giveaway, explain my new website, and some listener feedback.

This is not an episode, this is a test. I talk for five minutes about current projects (sort of) just to see if my podcast feed is still working. Let me know if it is!

I'm back from vacation and feeling well-rested and rarin' to... slow down. Sound like a mixed metaphor or oxymoron or something? Check out the creative bytes in this episode to find out what toggle switch just got flipped for me and why. In addition to some highlights from Louisiana, I also talk about my experience doing the Kimberly Einmo Mystery Quilt on Craftsy and where I think I'm heading next. I announce a new "-Along" to keep us entertained, and mention some books I've been reading. A little listener feedback and some information about Google Readers' impending demise, and we have us an episode!
Mentioned in this episode:
Feedly (replacement for Google Reader) at www.feedly.com
Laura Wasilowsky's Hand-Stitched Collage Quilts on Craftsy

I'm finally back! February was pretty much a waste. But now it's March 1 and I'm there with bells on! In this episode I announce the winner of the book giveaway courtesy Sarah of Houston; I give some Sandy Update about why I dropped off the face of the earth for three weeks; I talk about my adventure in hand-dyeing; and I do some listener feedback.

Sandy Raw and Uncut. I didn't edit this episode so I apologize for any sniffles or squeaks you may hear. Fortunately, you can't catch my cold through the airwaves. In this episode (thanks to Nonnie!) all y'all weighed in with your thoughts on reading quilt magazines and quilt books in their print version versus digital, and then I give my two cents.
This topic was spurred by this blog post sent to me by Nonnie: http://blog.caronmosey.com/2013/01/the-future-of-quilting-books-and.html
