Here is a podcast that was recorded in April at my Clear Lake retreat. It features the retreat attendees — so you’ll get to know quilters from several different locations.

Before we start, do you remember this picture?

episode_209I hope you do! This picture is from when I was a guest on the second season of “The Quilt Show” with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. Being a guest on this show was a dream come true.

  2. I listened to your podcast today and want to watch the program on the Quilt Show, but I can’t find it. Do you know how to access the program? Thanks. After listening to the podcast, I would love to attend one of your retreats!

  3. So glad you’re back on – maybe next year I can make it to your retreat – sounds wonderful!!! 🙂

  4. Ok, so to view Episode #209 of The Quilt Show, click on the underscored “THE QUILT SHOW” that is beneath the picture. It will take you straight to it.

    Sorry! I didn’t have the link set right!!

    When you get to The Quilt Show page, it will have you sign in with your info — THERE IS NO CHARGE to view the show. They just want to know who is watching and where they’re coming from. It’s how they get their viewership statistics — and we all want that ; )


  5. I tried the link and have been a free member to TQS FOR YEARS. BUT the link did not work and I was unable to view the show.

    No screen came up where I could plug in your code.

    I was bummed to say the least.

  6. @Lady Rags —

    Stay tuned — they are going to extend the availability to watch the episode. I don’t know whether there will be a new code or not, but I will give updated info on the new podcast.
