We may not be quilting much these days but it’s still a favorite hobby of ours. Sharing our concerns or frustrations together can really help us know our intentions and also where we need to work a little harder on our interests. That’s what friendship and quilting buddies are for!
We all know that feeling. Reading a pattern and it’s going along fine until you hit a snag. Suddenly, it’s like the instructions are written in a different language, one you don’t understand.
Well, we asked our fellow quilter’s and listeners what their go-to solutions were when facing a problem with a pattern and today we share those thoughts and comments! So tune in and maybe you’ll learn something new along with us!
And to celebrate our friends all going to Quilt Con this week, there is a Quilt Non 2017 Instagram hop happening. Last year we had the chance to go to our first Quilt Con and it was amazing!!! So even though we aren’t there in body, we are there in spirit.
Happy Birthday to G and Sherri, some of our wonderful quilty friends we met at Quilt Con last year.

Hey hobbyists and crafters! It’s podcast day, once again!
Today’s podcast is full of goodies. We talk about splurging and saving on all of our crafty items. What items or brands are worth paying full price for? And what items are most likely bought on sale?
First we talk about thread choice. Based on our quilter’s question on Instagram, our blog, and our Facebook page most of our friends and followers use Aurifil thread. Thread is one of those things I always went cheap on until I learned the ways of other, more experienced quilters. Now I put time and effort into researching my thread choices.
We both agree that needles are a notion that we save on and we don’t seek out more costly options but we definitely splurge on fabric!
Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. What do you splurge on? Where do you save?
Our coffee and chat shout out goes to Keeping u in Stitches Quilting where they share lots of quilting places and tutorials from around the web. They recently shared our Top 5 Quilter’s Tools video and it helped us reach over 1000 views!
