    QOF Episode 71 - The Six Know-It-Alls

    There is so much to learn about quilt history, curation of shows, care of quilts and preservation. And I love the topics and guests that the six know-it-alls have on their show.

    These talks just work because these six knowledgeable women come at the topics from all different angles. It is important to them to bring the viewer along to learn quilt history. They want to bring about an understanding. They want to let quilt makers know how much value they can get by looking at older quilts.

Always informative and entertaining

I found Brandy’s podcast last year when she interviewed Karen Brown and went back to the beginning so I could listen to every episode. She has interviewed so many interesting people I wouldn’t be aware of otherwise, and she has the perfect voice and style of conversation keeps my interest! Thank you, Brandy - you’re the best!
