Rank #1: A Passion for Quilting
Welcome to episode 6 here on the Connecting Threads podcast!
First up, Kris and our fantastic educator, Barb Tatera discuss the ins-and-outs of thread selection. Our quilts are only as good as the materials we use, and choosing the right thread for both piecing and quilting is step one to a project that will last for years to come. Learn about thread choice, color selection and everything in between as these quilting pros put their heads together. (Starts at :46)
Next, Kris and Patrice talk about the upcoming Quilt Festival in Houston. Last year was our first year attending with a booth and, since then, we've been counting the days until we're back. Look out Houston, here we come! (Starts at 16:31)
