I am a HUGE fan girl of Valori Wells style... her fabric, her books and her business sense. Her newest book is a look into her world as a maker and gives some wonderful ideas. I loved chatting about her process, how she makes time, what photography means to her and sewing/running a business with small children.
I chat with Michelle May, Molly Hanson, Heidi Staples and Amanda Murphy!
I am in love with Michelle May's designs, They are fun, whimsical and make me smile! She works with wool and cotton for her designs at The Rasberry Rabbits. I asked Michelle to chat with me about working with wool and her technique called Folk Art Fusion.
I wanted to catch up with Amanda Murphy. She has beautiful fabric designs, embroidery designs, classes at Craftsy and books! I was interested in hearing about her book 'Color Essentials' and to hear more about the embroidery designs she does.
When the book titled 'Sew Organized for the Busy Girl!' by Heidi Staples came across my desk I don't think I could get it open fast enough! I'm a organization junkie and SEWING organization, sign me up! Heidi website is called FabricMutt so I knew we'd be good friends!

I chat with Nancy Kerns, Robin Buscemi, and Elizabeth Dackson today!
When Nancy Kern and I chatted in December we touched on taking classes at events, and I asked her to come back so we could talk more indepth! What is a quilt retreat/academey/show? How are they different? What kind of things do you find there and what ARE the classes like? Nancy and I have both taught at these events so we are going to give you the low down!
Robin Buscemi loves a great challenge, and when she approaches a quilt challenge she always has a story to go with it. Robin and I were chatting at the Houston show and she was telling me about her quilt that was hanging and how it came about and I knew you would all love to hear how she approaches her quilt making!
I love chatting with Elizabeth Dackson, she is full of energy AND ideas! Get combo for the show, right? Today we are going to talk foundation piecing, storage, and maybe sneak in a bit about sewing with a new puppy in the house. If you follow Elizabeth you'd seen the new addition to her family is quite adorable!
