Blair Stocker, from WiseCraft Handmade, is a creative with a passion for teaching others how to use what they have to make warm and snuggly quilts. Using different textiles to create one of a kind quilts, wall hangings, and pillows. I struggle with cutting into beloved fabrics to make something special but Blair’s new book, WiseCraft Quilts, guides you along in such a way that it is sacred and not scary. We chat on this episode about Blair’s background as a creative, her books, having a creative business, her new videos focused on guiding you to make your first quilt.

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.
