Top Modern Quilting Books for your Sewing Library

The one thing I get to do as the host of the Modern Sewciety podcast is chat with authors in the sewing industry. It is a pretty dreamy job I must admit. I am a cheerleader of others accomplishments so the podcast just seems to be a the perfect form of media for me. My guests and I can have a chat while we are still in our jammies which is a win/win for both of us. The relaxed format for the podcast really helps me have a genuine chat with my guest. I feel like it really let’s us get talk about the details of the book they have just written, the real nitty gritty details. I love those chats when the guest really tells us the ups and downs of the reality of writing a book. Today I am sharing my top 5 picks for your quilting library and many have been on the podcast so I have added those links as well. I hope you will check out the books and the podcast.

MS episode 108:: Abby Glassenberg & Rachel Felix

I invited two of my favorite podcasters on the show to chat about business, newsletters, and everything in between. I loved everything about these chats and I know you will too. Abby Glassenberg, from While She Naps and Craft Industry Alliance, really talks the nitty gritty of podcasting, blog numbers, making money, and, of course, newsletters. Rachel, from Maker Style, is a college student with a blog and podcast that I love. She is really on fire these days. I can’t wait for you to learn more about these ladies and get some inside information on what is working for us and what is not. Click the blog title to learn more.

And the gals from Birch Fabric chat all about how the company came to be and why they focus on organic fabrics. Click on the link to check out the chat.
