MS episode 165:: Kristi Schroeder- owner of Initial K Studios and Author of Southwest Modern

Kristi from Initial K Studios is on the podcast with all the scoop about her new book, Southwest Modern. Kristi shares stories about the quilts in the book and the gorgeous locations she visited for out-of-this-world photography. I loved that Southwest Modern is a quilting book as much as it is a travel book. I want to visit the locations with my own versions of the patterns in the book. Learn all about how Kristi started quilting, the idea that sparked Kristi submitting her first book proposal, and so much more.

Karen Tripp is on the podcast today! She is the QUEEN of the popular English Paper Piecing website, DIY Addict.

I loved learning more about EPP and some of the tips and tricks to really enjoy this slow sewing process.

Nicole from Finch Sewing Studio is my guest today. She is such a creative force as the owner of Finch Sewing Studio in Leesburg, VA, a cute historic town. Nicole and I started our businesses around the same time and I have always admired her shop and also how savvy she is at business. I haven’t visited her shop yet but it is a bucket list item for sure. In the chat, we learn more about how Finch was born, how it is growing, and Nicole’s decision to launch the coolest sewing/knitting subscription box, The Finch Box.

I am so lucky to get to chat with such amazing creatives for the podcast. I knew my guest, Jessica Swift, was amazing but this chat really made me love her even more. I love how colorful Jessica’s artwork is and she carried that saturated color into her fabric line with Art Gallery Fabrics. We chat all about how she started out as a creative, designing fabric, be creative with our kids, the most popular items in her shop, and so much more. We even learn all about her class called Pattern Campfire. This chat is so full of awesome information. Check out the show notes for all of the links.

MS episode 160: Be Creative with Workbox magazine’s editor Mary Bennellick

MS episode 160: Be Creative with Workbox magazine’s editor Mary Bennellick

This episode is so special for me because I am chatting with Be Creative with Workbox magazine’s editor, Mary Bennellick. Mary contacted me for a feature she was working on for the magazine about podcasts. We emailed back and forth and the article was published in the magazine. Mary mentioned she would like to do a write up about me in an upcoming issue of the magazine and I was like a girl that just got asked to prom. There was a little happy dance I may have done in my sewing room and thank goodness I am the only one who saw my dancing skills. I came up with the idea to have her on the podcast for a chat to get to know her a little better and have it air when the article was published. It has been such a fun couple of months of communication with Mary and her managing editor, Amber. These ladies are doing a phenomenal job with Be Creative but learning more about how they came to be the editors of the magazine was so cool. The podcast today really helps you get to know more about the magazine and what these ladies are looking forward to in the future. Oh and we even let you in on the secrets to getting your own work published in the magazine. Take a listen and make sure to check the show notes for all of the links we chat about.
