UFO’s podcast 1-2020

This was my first time to listen! So impressed with everyone’s knowledge and tips. I had a quilt shop back in the early 1980’s when there wasn’t much coverage. I went to a seminar in Kansas City with Eleanor Burns and had the time of my life and learned so much! Georgia Bonesteele was another big name at the time. Fast forward to today with the internet and so many giving people sharing their skills to the world. I am back quilting after retirement, and I’m entering a whole new world! Glad I found you!

So inspiring

Today’s podcast was wonderful. Entertaining and inspiring. I try to walk twice a day and especially look forward to my Monday walks when I can listen to the latest American Patchwork and Quilting podcast. Today’s podcast reaffirmed in me how blessed I am to have such a wonderful hobby that brings joy to me as well as to those I gift a quilt to. Quilting has made this time in my life so rewarding. Thank you for all the great tips and information, and also highlighting what wonderful people quilters are!

Great Inspiration and Tips

I listen to the podcast every week, usually on my drive home from work. I always feel inspired to make the time to sew and try new things. I’m also a fan of APQ magazines.
