Ivete from Gotham Quilts in New York City is on the podcast today.

Let’s just say that fabric does really help overcome the downs for all of us. I really enjoyed getting to know Ivete more and there is some really great information in this chat. Fabric for the win.

I went to my first quilt retreat last year called Quilt Bliss which was so much fun. My guest today didn’t get to attend the retreat but she lives nearby and I needed a ride to the airport so I sent her a text with hopes that we could catch up. It was only several months before that we had shared a cab to the airport in Houston after Quilt Market. I can’t tell you how happy I was when she picked me up and we chatted all about our families, sewing, fabric, struggles of being in this industry met with the abundant blessing as well, the retreat, and well just about everything. I love that quilters just make me so happy and I always feel like whether we know each other or not I can always talk fabric and we will get each other instantly. This episode is a chat between two online friends who have also met in real life. Click to listen.
