Just Wanna Quilt Podcast

So a couple of months ago I became aware of a group of people working on the issue of copyright within the quilting world.  I'm always interested in this area.  Elizabeth Townsend Gard is a law professor working out of Tulane Law School in New Orleans and is heading up the project.  They call it Just Wanna Quilt.  You can read more about it on their website, Facebook Page or why not join their Facebook group!

As part of this project Elizabeth is interviewing all sorts of people from the quilting world.  And she interviewed little old me! LOL!

So if you want to hear about my journey into the quilting world you can do so here.  If it hadn't been for the lucky stroke that I ended up living next door to Lorraine during our first assignment to Australia, I know it would have been unlikely I would ever have found my way to the quilting world!  Lorraine started off as my neighbour and became one of my Aussie besties!  We started off making cards together as that is her other passion.  But as I started sewing again she was willing me to make a quilt!  I resisted due to the time investment, I much preferred to get an item finished in a few hours!  But eventually I did, and the rest, as they say, is history lol!  It's always the people you meet that have such an impact on your life and the directions you may go in.  I've loved the fact that we have lived in different places and have been able to meet lots of different people!

There are lots of other fascinating interviews on there too so be sure to check them out. 

Lately I've been listening to quilty podcasts as I go out for my run!  Some of my other favourites are: Abby Glassenberg; and Crafty Planner.
