At each trade show I take the opportunity to interview guests in person! This is GREAT fun for me because I am able to chat sitting right next to my guest and I think we may laugh more.. wink! This show was taped in May at the International Quilt Market in Portland OR.
CLICK HERE to catch up on my prior shows! Just scroll PAST the show description until you hit the "Disco Ball". Once that comes in the player is there!
Here is what you can look forward to on my show today!
Guest - Kaari Meng from the French General chatted with me about how she developed her latest fabric line, her retreats she runs in France and she has the BEST tip to use when collecting! We did the interview during set up day.. I think we took this photo at the end of the day when we might have been starting to 'wilt' just a little bit!
Guest -- Jan Patek is one of my idols.. serious .. I'm a HUGE Fan girl! My early work in applique was making models of her patterns for the local shop. And my early quilts were primitive and her work has always inspired me. Jan talks about being in the quilt industry for as long as she has, her work style and community!
Guest - One the best parts about the trade show is that every time you go, your booth is near someone new! This time I was next to BasicGrey. Shara Meredith is the Marketing Manager at BasicGrey and she came on the show to explain how BasicGrey started in fabric, what their design process is and shares about her latest and 'most Popular' fabric line (guess which it is!)
Guest - I have known Carolyn Forster almost since I started in the Quilt business. Carolyn is British and years ago she was the buyer for a shop in England that carries my things. Over the years we lost track of each other a bit and recently reconnected. I asked her to come on the show to chat about quilting in England, her 'Quilting on the Go' technique and her newest book with Landauer!
