Another Podcast Review: Annie Smith~Quilting Stash

Did you Freda's Hive Today?
And if you did, then ask yourself... Are you feeling lucky? Well, are you?!

Fellow Blogger and quilter extraordinaire, Paula - The Quilter, recommended Annie's Quilting Stash. Well I had a listen and it was really great!

Annie Smith does a bi-weekly podcast (her website is linked above, also try getting it at iTunes as well). The latest one features two fabulous interviews:

First Annie speaks with Karey Bresenhan, founder and president of Quilt Market and Quilt Festival. Karey is a real down-home girl and the interview is wonderfully personable, full of interesting stories and little tid-bits. Their website is of course: Quilts, Inc.

Then Annie has an interview with Beth Hayes, editor and chief of McCalls Quilting Magazine. The audio quality on this interview isn't the best but the content is still pretty interesting. McCalls Quilting is a part of CK Media which includes: Quilters Home, Quiltmaker, Quick Quilts, and McCalls Quilting among many others!

Another little tid-bit of information revealed in this interview is that McCalls is looking for cutting edge fabrics in somewhat traditional patterns. So if you want to get one of your brilliant patterns published there, that is what Beth Hayes is looking for!

Well, all-in-all, this is definitely a podcast to subscribe to.

Annie's Quilting Stash: Recommend!
