    Create Your Dream Sewing Space

    Create Your Dream Sewing Space

    The ultimate sewing room means something different to every quilter. There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to sewing spaces. Each quilters’ needs and décor styles are different. We’re going to take you on a journey to discover your dream sewing space, so you can then take some small steps to make that dream a reality. We’re also sharing a helpful trick to finish your UFOs faster, some storage products we love, a story of quilting making a difference among inmates, and the history of redwork.

    How to Declutter Your Fabric Stash

    Happy New Year! 2021 is finally here! And let’s hope it’s a more positive year than the previous one. We wanted to start out this year on the podcast in a way that’s both inspiring and motivating and that included some of our favorite things: playing with fabric and meeting new quilting friends. So, we’re starting the show by giving some tips for organizing and decluttering your fabric stash – we promise that it’s a no-fail plan and will have you thinking about your fabric and your sewing space in a whole new way. Then, we chat with the three amazing ladies from Color of Connection quilt, a non-profit that’s doing all they can to bring together quilters from different races, genders, and backgrounds through a common love of sewing.

    Tips for Sewing with Pets

    According to a 2020 study, 67% of U.S. households or about 85 million families own a pet. That’s a lot of pets! So the odds are that many quilters listening right now are sewing in a space that has an animal. Owning a pet is so rewarding, but we know that our pets can also present some problems in our quilting lives, so we're excited to discuss some tips for sewing with pets! We also chat with the amazing Andra Walker, a prolific sewing, known for making everything from bags to garments to quilts. You’ll love hearing the advice she has to offer.

Love Listening

I so hooked on this podcast. I find it very interesting and informational. I’m listening to all the past episodes. I not only listen while quilting but also when I’m doing housework and walking. Thank you so much for such valuable information.

Organize Projects for the Future

Just recently found American Patchwork & Quilting’s podcast and have listened to several already-they really get me motivated to start making more time for quilting and thinking about my projects. Just finished this episode and I am ready to start organizing! Also the interview with Susan Cleveland was great! First I have heard of Piping Hot Binding - sounds fantastic along with other techniques that were mentioned. Always great to learn new things! Very inspiring podcasts - you feel like you are in the room and a part of it!
