I met Leah Day at Fall Market last year I believe. We quickly started chatting about business and Leah couldn’t stop smiling. I love to chat business and Leah is always so open about what works for her and what doesn’t. She is honest about the ups and the downs in her business. I love that in a person. I love when someone shares their story, sure, but when someone shares their business secrets I get giddy. You see so many people don’t want to share what is working for their business because you might take some of their business. That could happen but I don’t think Leah is threatened by that idea. She is confident in who she is and what she is doing. She loves to share her passion for sewing and her passion for having a business that makes money. She is a pro at videos and patterns and she runs a thriving online shop as well. She even has a new sewing podcast called Hello My Quilting Friends. We chat about all of her many talents in this episode of the podcast. I think you are going to love it. Click on the link for this blog post to listen.
Cheryl Arkison is someone I could chat with all day long about sewing, quilting, fabric, family, and how I love warm weather and she loves cold weather. She just inspires me to look at my process and think about it in a new way. We chat about her new fabric line with Connecting Threads called Tag. She also shares why she thinks her time in the morning being creative helps her to stay creative even when she may want to take a break. I need to adopt her process in some way because I think it would help me to stay in the creative zone. I tend to stray sometimes and getting back on track can be difficult. I wanted to know all about her process of sorting scraps. We really just had a great chat and I can’t wait for you to listen. Cheryl always has some great tips and advice.

When I started sewing on the regular nine years ago I remember finding Elizabeth Hartman’s blog, Oh Fransson. She always had super colorful projects that were our of this world cool. She is still the same oh so cool pattern designer but has expanded to fabric design, books, craftsy class, and I can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve. Elizabeth knows how to make patterns with cool creatures and doesn’t shy away from color. We chatted about her journey, her patters, fabric lines, and so much more. She has always been so kind and helpful to me in my own sewing journey. I think you are going to love this chat as much as I did.
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.
