    Episode 35: Bringing Up The Next Generation of Creatives

    We're back, after a recording mishap with our last episode!
    Immediately after meeting our two guests, we knew that we needed to introduce them to the rest of you! They're not only amazing educators, but they've both created after-school sewing and quilting clubs for their students!
    We were excited to drop this episode at a time of year that lends itself to planning the implementation of a creative program of your own! Whether you're a teacher, parent, or community member, we hope that you'll get some helpful tips and insight into what it takes to get started!
    So, pull up a seat, because you can always sit with us!

    Episode 34: Libs Elliott

    Today, we're joined by one of our most favorite quilters, and are so excited to share our conversation with Libs Elliott with you! From her brief stint at Crayola to her big jump in college studies, we learn all about the road that led her to create computer-engineered patterns at a time when modern quilting was still in its infancy.

    Maybe you've been in the market for a longarm machine, or maybe you're looking to be talked out of it once and for all. Either way, we're addressing the pros and cons of longarm ownership to help you decide if it's for you!
    With one of us on either side of the fence, there's some great points made to help see the big picture!

Such a fun listen

Thanks for taking your time to create a fun and inclusive podcast. It allows me to feel like I’m still part of the community even though I’ve moved to a town in the middle of Australia and all my family and coworkers think that quilters must be nannas. 🤣 as a 30somethings quilter, your podcast is very relatable. Thanks for the content.
