The Stitch – Episode 101!

The inaugural episode of The Stitch is up!

We’re still learning our way around cameras and sound and not looking like newscasters, and expect our second episode to be EVEN BETTER!

Links of interest from the episode:

The (ridiculous) pile of buffalo bits Lynn gave Pam, and the finished miniquilt:

And here’s our first piece of fanmail from Kay!

Join us Friday September 11, 2015, at 7pm US Eastern time for our virtual sew-in! Details with viewing links going up closer to the event.

This episode was sponsored by Barney Pens!  Thank you for making the awesome seam rippers that we try not to use that often, but look at plenty because they are so, so pretty.

  1. An amazing phenomenon of the Gees’s Bend Quilts is that they were so similar to the minimalist art of Frank Stella and Joseph Albers and others, hanging in museums in the 60s and 70s. When you look at the colors and patterns the similarities are shocking. It is almost like one group is imitating the other.

  13. Hey Lynn! It’s Karen from Pat’s paint class. Great job with quilt show! Really liked the play off of each other’s personality. I don’t know anything about quilting, but watched the whole show. Informative and made me smile.

  15. Now that the audio was put up I am actually getting around to listening. Thanks for doing that!

    I always wash my pre-cuts except for the mini-charms. I use a net bag like you use for stockings and lingerie and they get to be a mess, but not a terrible mess. Ironing unwashed fabric gives me a wonderful (NOT) allergic reaction from the fumes, so I wash it all. The mini-charms, I guess, are too small to have much fume-y yuck on them.

    We have the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles here in the Bay Area. I don’t get there as often as I would like, but I am a member.

    This must be the allergy comment. I don’t use walnut shells since many people are allergic to nuts. Since I also like some weight to my pincushions, I use Beanie Baby pellets. You can get them at Beverly’s, which is like Joann, but nicer and not as messy. I also use wool roving and have heard that keeps pins sharp as well.

    Lynn has such a great gravelly voice.

    It is nice how you are honoring your grandmothers.
