Join Pam and Lynn for the first episode of Season 3 of The Stitch TV Show online quilt show! We’re talking about finding inspiration when you have none, and weird, unconventional tools you’d be surprised have a purpose in the sewing room.
This episode is brought to you by Ink & Arrow Fabrics!
The quilt hanging behind us is our Sportsball quilt in Green Bay Packer’s colors. Pam’s husband is still kind of mad about that Atlanta Falcons game. Get the pattern and make your own version in your team’s colors!
