    Quilty Goals Check-In

    Quilty Goals Check-In

    We're halfway through the year! Back in January 2022, our staff made quilty goals for the year. We decided to do an update episode--both as a way to keep ourselves accountable, but also as a way to get back on track. So now 6 months later, we're all checking in to share our progress! We also share what a staff member is sewing now, how to tailor your time spent on UFOs to your personal schedule, and the benefits of handwork. Then we answer a listener question about when to adjust your stitch length while sewing.

New Listener catching up

I’m new to podcasts and I didn’t think this media would lend itself to quilting. Quilting is a hands on, deeply personal craft and I couldn’t imagine how talking about quilting could ever be as good as actually sewing. Lindsey and her colleagues do a fabulous job bringing helpful tips, relevant content, and up to date interviews with the industry’s biggest names. I love Lindsey’s soothing voice and that she actually responds when you email her a response to one of her polls or questions. I wish I found the APQPodcast sooner but now I’m having a blast catching up on all the episodes!

My weekly quilts pleasure

I have been listening to The American Patchwork and Quilting podcast for quite a while now, but it became even more important to me during the pandemic. It gave me something to look forward to and something I could count on during a very uncertain time. The podcast is hosted by Lindsay Mayland who gives you the feeling that you’re old friends having a chat. She’s so easy to listen to! I’ve learned so much from listening to the podcast. The regular contributors and special guests always have helpful and interesting topics to share. Thank you for all you do to support the quilting community! Jane Licata

Getting ready for work bestie

Your podcast is wonderful. It’s been a year since I starting listening to all the tips and tricks. I am a new quilter and just finished my 3rd quilt! I love listening when I am getting ready for work. I usually have a pad of paper and pencil ready to jot down great ideas.
