Enjoyed hearing you on Pat's show! You guys made history together and inspired us in the process!

Deanna said...

The opening disclaimer made me laugh. How controversial and in possible need of editing can a quilt show be?

Thanks for the giveaway. Looking forward (if very lucky) to finding new possibilities!

Dale Anne said...

LOVED hearing your voices - now I can put voices to pictures and posts on Facebook & Twitter as well.
LOVED hearing all your history - I have been quilting since 1984 so you both have always been there!!!

Michele said...

What a fun interview! Congrats to Pat on her show and on you guys for being the first guests.

I enjoyed listening to your interview with Pat Sloan. I have been to the GAQF several times, although I live in Alabama. My husband works in Denver, and my mother-in-law lives in Aurora, so when I get out west, your store is a must for me. I have always had great help and found treasures to bring home.

Pieceful Jane said...

Great show! I loved the story about the vests.:D Too funny. I taught all three of my kids, a niece and a few nephews how to sew using your kids sewing machine book.(This was many years ago.) They had so much fun learning, and are happy to have the skills now as adults. Thanks for all the help and inspiration you have given me over the years.

Glad I listened...now I know where to go next time I'm in Denver visiting family!

Tammom said...

I think Pat's show should be called GAB Talk Radio! hehe I think she's the type of person who could gab with just about anyone!

Kathryn said...

I have one of your pineapple books, and will get to it one of these days. You had a great interview with Pat. I enjoyed every minute. I sure hope I get to Denver one day to see your shop in person.

Haven't had a chance to listen yet, but can't wait to. Love to read your news letter (it is so well designed...like eye candy!) and would love to get to visit someday!

Lauren H said...

Ladies: It was so fun and interesting to listen to you and Pat discuss the history of your quilting business, as well as what interests you as an artisan. Thank you for participating with Pat and for hosting this giveaway. Don't have any current plans to be in Colorado, but will certainly plan a trip to your shop whenever I next get there!

Quilting Diva said...

Great hearing all about your beginnings...way back....

I love showing new quilters your books..they are so inspiring, and the instructions are great.

Keep 'em coming!

Jan said...

Enjoyed the show very much - have quite a few of your books (not the $100+++ ones)and some of your patterns. Nice to put voices with photos, and just might have to try making a pineapple quilt.

Mary said...

I just finished listening to your radio interview with Pat. Very interesting and fun. You inspired me to get out my pineapple book and ruler and get with it!
Thanks for an enjoyable hour.

Hello Nancy & Linda,
Really enjoyed your interview with Pat on her first radio show! I, too, was in Pigeon Forge last year. Your class was full when I registered but if you are back in Tennessee I hope to take the Pineapple class with you. Much love to you two and to Pat.

Totally enjoyed hearing the laughter, the easy going interview (good mix of personal and professional) and all the Possibilities to be Creative! I've now tagged the program as a favorite to listen to while I sew or knit! Listening all the way over here-hear! in the Netherlands.

As a new quilter, it was very interesting to learn about both of you and the store. I hope to be able to be brave enough to try a "pineapple" pattern soon. Right now I am settling for simple...

Anne Wiens said...

Great start for Pat's show, Lynda & Nancy. I was on the bus for that McCall's Symposium Shop Hop visit to Great American Quilt Factory. Can you believe they gave us only 45 minutes to shop?

Jane said...

This is the coolest thing!!! Gotta love technology!!!

Darla said...

Great first radio show, just like having Pat in your living room...she is just coming out of the laptop! ;)
This is another layer of fun that comes out of Pat's creative mind.

It was fun to listen and get to know Lynda and Nancy along with you, Pat.

lvkwilt said...

Brought back memories of visiting your first shop in 1981 with the baby playing in the playpen. As a military wife, temporarily living in Denver, you were so kind and welcoming! Now, we live in the Denver area and I visit regularly!

So enjoyed your radio interview with Pat Sloan. I always loved visiting your store when I lived in the Denver area. It was great hearing about how your business began. Continued success. Congrats and I love the basket.

Connecticut Chronichols said...

I loved hearing you on Pat's show. I'm going to have to plan a little trip through Denver area next time I'm headed cross country.

Alicia said...

I just listened to the Radio Show. It was exciting to hear a program just for and about quilters.

Kelly said...

I love the internet and all we are exposed to, and it's only in its infancy. Congrats to Pat for her new show and for you being her first guests. BTW, I love your store!! Kelly in CO

Judy G said...

WOW!! I really enjoyed your interview to get to know you both a little and find out about Denver!! Congratulations on all your achievements accomplished and certainly looking forward to your continued "possibilities" Thanks for sparking my possibilities I may do a pineapple quilt!!

simply sewing said...

Great show! I do remember the vests. I loved them. It was great to find out who designed them. It is a wonderful idea to have soup and salad next door to your shop. What a great idea for lunch amid the shopping and quilting. I felt inspired by your project book. I hope it is still in print. It would be great for my granddaughters and me. I have wanted to make a pineapple quilt ever since I met you in Sisters several years ago. Maybe I will. Thanks for an inspiring show. It lifted my spirits and made me want to sew, sew, sew.

Peppermint Lane said...

Great show ladies. It was fun to hear about all the things you've accomplished with in the world of quilting.

Brigitte said...

great to listen via Pat's radioshow about your shop. Would love to win the "possibilities"

Quilter Kathy said...

I am too late for the draw, but wanted to say it was fun to listen to you on the computer podcast while I did some hand quilting today :) I loved the story about the babies in playpens greeting the customers...I'd have come by every day just to see that!
