Annie Smith Podcast Marathon

These last couple of weeks I have enjoyed an Annie Smith, Quilting Stash Podcast Marathon. Wow that was not easy to say! I drive a good long way to work--let me rephrase that, I drive a horribly long way to work. It is only 25 miles, but it generally takes 45 minutes to get to work and at least an hour home. So, I listen to a lot of books on tape and podcasts. This last couple of weeks I have been listening to Quilting Stash. Quilting Stash is the first podcast for quilters, started by Annie Smith. Annie is a very talented interviewer and I have really been enjoying her. The podcasts are usually about 1/2 hour long--so I can listen to at least 2 and sometimes 4 going to and from work. She interviews people in the quilting industry--new designers and well seasoned designers, including Nancy and myself. I especially enjoyed her interview with Karey Bresenhan--founder of Quilt Market and Festival, and Beth Hayes--editor of McCall's Quilting and Quick Quilts. Annie also does great Quilt Market recaps, letting her listener's know what was new, fun, and trendy.

The episodes I'm listening to now are from January this year as she takes a cross country trip to deliver her son's car to him in North Carolina. She visits with several quilters and quilt shops across the country. I think you will enjoy her, too. You can download the podcasts from itunes or Annie's website, or just listen to them on the website. Another plus, she gives away great prizes! I hope you check Quilting Stash out.

Last, but not least, we have had many questions about the banner that has been running on the side of our articles in McCall's Quilting and Quick Quilts. The newest issue of McCall's Quilting features our quilt Calypso, from Simple to Sensational Batiks pictured below. It truly is a beautiful quilt and it is a great banner for our article. Enjoy!

As always,
