I am chatting with Amy Ellis the co-creator of Curated Quilts Magazine, a new magazine full of inspiration not ads. I first saw the projects from Curated Quilts popping up on Instagram and I was intrigued. I wanted to know more about the magazine immediately so I invited Amy on the podcast. We chat about how the idea for the magazine started, what will be gracing the pages of the magazine, and how you can submit your own works to be featured in the magazine. Amy is leader in the sewing industry who has designed several fabric lines for Moda Fabrics, authored several awesome books, and a so much more. She knows this community and I feel like she is the perfect person to know what kind of magazine this community would love. I hope you enjoy this episode and take a minute to check out the magazine. You might even see some familiar names and projects you recognize from your online quilty friends.
I have two chats today because I thought you would enjoy learning about both of the companies and how they can help you with your sewing business. I so enjoyed chatting with Stephanie Hackney from Hobbs Bonded Fibers. Stephanie is a marketing guru and we talk all about how that led her to work for Hobbs. She is learning so much about the sewing industry and turning that into profit for Hobbs. But don’t think profit is all she is thinking about because Stephanie is making it her mission to visit local quilt shops as she travels around to trade shows. She is sharing this journey on Instagram for all of us to follow along and meet some amazing shop owners. I learned so much in this chat about batting but also about business. I am thinking of ideas to have Stephanie back on the show for sure. I also chatted with David from Quilty Cloud. I had never heard of Quilty Cloud until a super funny email landed in my inbox from Kerry, David’s wife. Kerry is a quilter and David in the tech world. They worked together to build a service to allow quilters to give quotes to potential customers easily and professionally. This service will streamline your process as a quilter trying to estimate how much thread, batting, etc will be needed in a project and also the cost. This is an episode jam packed with valuable information to help you save time and money in your sewing business.
I always love to make quick quilts and I think baby quilts usually fit in the quick category. I should make more of them because they are just fun… And, well, fast!
