Lissa Alexander's newest book is all about scraps and it's fantastic! She is also the director of Marketing for Moda Fabrics, which means she is the organizer of getting all the amazing things about Moda out for us to learn.

I love antique quilts and reading about the people who made them. It’s a joy to open Lynn Miller’s website Vintage and Antique to read the stories she has written about quilt makers from the past. Lynn often writes a series of articles so it’s very fun to dive deep into the background behind either the maker or sometimes the collectors.

I learned how to sew by making clothing. In reality I made clothing badly but I still kept making them, even wore some. I wish I’d had a ‘Joi Mahon’ to teach me. Joi is an author, teacher, owns the Sewing Factory in Sioux City, Iowa, is a fellow Baby lock ambassador and clothing pattern designer. She also has a rich family history of sewing which includes quilts. Can’t wait for you to meet her and maybe I’ll even try sewing clothing again!

==============
I’m delighted that Linda Thielfoldt is my quilt expert joining me every month in 2017. She is an award winning quilter, a teacher, designer, author and she quilts for hire too. But besides all that Linda has a very deep technical knowledge of the quilt making process. Each month we’ll have a chance to dig deep into a topic everyone wants to know about! To kick off the year, we’ll talk about teaching. And more importantly, teaching someone else to quilt so that they love it as much as we do. You are in for a real treat this year getting to know Linda!
http://www.thequiltedgoose.com/
==================
For the second half of my show I will be talking with Gwen Marston. Her work spans folk art, to liberated quilting making, to minimalist styles. Her newest book, I believe #30, is a retrospect of her pieces called ‘A common Thread’. A coffee table book full of amazing photos of her quilts that span her work to this date. Gwen curated the collection and I can’t wait to talk about quilting ‘then’ and ‘now’ … and mostly about how she she developed as an artist through the years.

Jane Sassaman is an art quilter and fabric designer. Her exuberant quilts and fabric designs have attracted worldwide recognition. As an art quilter, Jane’s designs are always recognizable for their bold color and graphic style.

For sixteen years she has also translated her unique vision into exciting designs for FreeSpirit, a company producing fabrics for quilters. Like her appliqué quilts, Jane’s fabrics are nature inspired, large scaled and colorfully enthusiastic!

One of the best things about working with Baby lock is meeting the other ambassadors that work in with the machines. Mallory Donohue make a lot of things, specializing in clothing. I first ‘found her’ by her wonderful videos on how to use the Sashiko machine. She and her mom Zede run SewHere.com. Which is about teaching sewing for everyone via their website, videos, FaceBook lives, and podcasts. We chat about making clothing that fits as we quilters have amazing fabric we can use for things other than quilts!

----

Who do I turn to for questions on the quilting design program Electric Quilt? My good friend Nancy Mahoney! She has been using the program for years, is and EQ Ambassador, and knows the ins and outs. I wanted to tell you about some of the features you might not know about with Nancy as our guide!

---------

I was so excited to see Jenny Wilding Cardon’s book Visible Mending. The idea of artfully mending items is on the upswing and her book has so many fantastic ways to do this. Things we quilters will love! I first saw visible mending in about 1973 when one of the girls a few grades older than me was doing this to her favorite jeans. The one I remember most was a pocket, with zipper, on the inside thigh of her jeans. She kept her lunch money there.. it was the 70s.. the jeans had elephant bells and she was very on trend! Jenny also works for Martingale as an editor in charge of their online blog, facebook and Instagram account. She is incredible, you are going to love her!
