If you have ever had the chance to meet Mathew aka Mister Domestic in person there is one thing you won’t stop doing… smiling and laughing. He is the happiest person and it is infectious. I was so excited at Quiltcon in Savannah to be able to hang out with him and get to know him a little bit better. To be honest we laughed a lot and talked about fabric, sewing, thread, and creating nonstop. It was the best time ever. I knew I need to have him on the podcast for a chat because I wanted to share his enthusiasm about the sewing industry with you all. Mathew and I chat about his introduction to sewing, his surprising background in the industry, his new project with English Paper Piecing, and so much more. I enjoyed this conversation so much and I know you will too.

East Meets West Quilts – Book Review and Giveaway

 

east meets west quilt book

I love improv quilting and when I saw Patricia Belyea’s new book, East Meets West Quilts, I was intrigued. I couldn’t stop looking at the colors of the fabrics, the quilting, and the binding. I know binding isn’t usually something I get excited about but I really loved how Patricia showed the purpose and beauty of a faced binding. I really want to try that technique out and that says a lot because I don’t hand bind very often.

If you haven’t checked out this amazing show do yourself a favor and go take a watch. My kids love this show as much as my husband and I. A Chef’s Life reminds me of my upbringing on a farm in rural north Florida which brings up such sweet memories of my childhood.

Happy Mail from Alison Glass

So what happens when you interview the sweetest person you have ever met and feel like you are instantly friends? Well you ask her to be friends. lol Not really but we really did have so much in common and she really took time to ask me how she could help me here on Modern Sewciety. I love that. I think it is so much fun to find someone who is kind and genuine to others. And Alison sure is that person. When I interviewed her we chatted some before and after we recorded and one thing we talked about was aurifil and her new thread collection. I am so excited about that collaboration and she said oh I have some spools I will send you to try out. I have a Viking machine that can be so picky about thread so I had never tried it. So in the mail comes a package with not only thread but three of her embroidery patterns and sweet card with her artwork on it. WHAT?!?!?! I was so excited. I mean what a great surprise and so sweet of her to take the time to send me a package. I can’t wait to sew something up with that wonderful thread and learn to embroider with the most perfect patterns. I am over the moon smiling!

THANKS ALISON!
