Beth found some snips that she loves. She didn’t have the brand available, but I’m guessing they are Havel’s or Famore’s snips. I use the rainbow pair of Famore snips, and April has a Fiskars snip that she keeps hidden from her kiddos!

I haven’t mentioned this on the blog yet, but I am a new contributor to Quilty! I’m talking about quilting on your domestic machine in each new installment of Quilty, if you are just getting started, this entire mag is a great resource for you! There’s also lots of great quilt patterns too – be sure to check it out :)

    This podcast episode does not seem to be downloading on itunes. It keps trying, then stops, though your other episodes did download, and I enjoyed listening to them.

    I don’t know about the iTunes problem, I’m using BeyondPod on my Android phone and it’s working fine. I just wanted to say thank you for having such a nice podcast with quality content. I’m always looking forward to the updates and the Top 5-s!
