History Quilter Podcast #2 Quilt Shows

A very happy Friday to you all.  Here in Southern California we are expecting a very cold storm this evening and into tomorrow and before I forget, I must go out and put sheets over some of my plants in the yard.  A few years ago we had such a bad frost here that I lost two bougainvilleas in my yard. Bummer.

Here are the podcast notes for Podcast #2.
Topic for the podcast was Quilt Shows.

Impressive guild website with updated links throughout.  The Show and Tell & Guild Pictures are worth a look for inspiration.

  1. I just finished listening to your first and second podcasts. They're so fun! I needed to spend some time cleaning up my sewing room and this was the perfect thing to listen to in there! I'm so jealous that you got Eleanor Burns' autograph - she's the reason I started quilting way back when I was a teenager. I watched her first PBS show in 1989 and I was hooked! Looking forward to listening to the rest of these while I sew. :)
