June 2, 2014 Pat Sloan hosts American Patchwork and Quilting Radio

When I'm at the trade show I love being able to interview people in person. Some are people who live in other countries, so I don't have to catch them early in the morning or late at night. Others have busy schedules and it's easier when they are at the show! All four guests today are incredibly talented and delightful.. Enjoy!

As soon as I saw Frances Newcombe's fabric with Art Gallery I knew I had to meet her! Frances is a artist that works in the TV industry by day, and crafts and draws and raises a little one the rest of the time. She talks to me about creativity and how she develops her sets of designs. And be sure to listen in to find out who her famous father is!

2014 is Olfa's 35th anniversary of the invention of the rotary cutter! What an incredible tool that I could NOT live without. I asked Robin Letourneau, the Associate Brand Lead at OLFA to tell me about how it was invented and what has gone on with the rotary cutter since the 70s!  Pictured above it Matt McDonnell, Heidi Severson, Robin Letourneau, and Leah Lawson.

The ever thoughtful and very talented Thomas Knauer has been living in England and came into the trade show for his first book release. Thomas's book is filled with 12 meaningful quilts where he shares his thoughts behind each.
