Author, fabric designer and amazingly creative, Jennifer Heynen designs fun things for her company Jennifer Jangles. Her newest book is Stitch Kitchen, 44 Happy Sewing projects for home and accessories. Plus she promised me her best pincushion making tip!


See ALL the cute bags, eyeglass holders and such from Jennifer

Erin Harris is the author of a wonderful book called Quilt Essential. She and I are going to talk about the essentials of quilt making, the beauty of working with kits, and she will share a few tips of picking colors and fabric.

Cheryl Arkison joins me to chat about her latest book 'You inspire Me to Quilt'. That title alone caught my attention, because how many of us have made a quilt inspired by the idea someone gave you? We love to give a quilt people want! We are also going to talk about using low volume fabrics.. and what does that mean? Add in a bit on making time for our own creativity. You are going to be inspired and want to sew like crazy after this show!
