    Really good sound … what type of recorder are you using? Seems to work really good…

    THANKS for the pics to go with the podcast lots of fun … makes it more like looking at fond memories being related to my favorite hobby… almost as if I was there.

      Thanks Nonnie! My mic has a cord for the iPhone, so I plugged it and used the voice memo app. It worked out!

      Glad you enjoyed all the pics too :)

    I absolutely LOVE Quiltcast. The best part of the show is listening in on two women who are growing their businesses and also maintaining home and family! I always feel like you are my next door neighbors. The other aspect I love is that you actually talk about fabric, notions (isn’t notions such an out dated word?) and people in the quilt business. I feel like you give me the jump on the next great color way or the next great pattern.
    I recommend your podcast to all my other sewing friends.
    Continued success to you both!

    Love listening to you and April talk. Helps me remember how important it is that your “work” be fun! Thanks!

      So true Robin – we both really love our work! Thanks for listening!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I love your podcasts. I especially like hearing about how you guys do different techniques. There is so much pressure to have the latest notion or coolest ruler. But as I listen to you two, I realize you don’t need to have the best of the best, just drive to be creative. So thanks for that!

      Isn’t that the truth – just enjoy it and do what works for you. That’s what we do!
