Quilty Podcasts?

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

Yes, it's true! You can now (probably for a while actually) download audio podcasts all about quilting!

There are several out there to choose from! Of course there is Alex anderson, who does a nice talk about what's going on in her busy life. But there are several. Who Knew!!

I'm going to go through each one individually and give you my take on them.

Today, I listened to Alex Anderson. I actually listened to a few of her podcasts and they are all very good. It's way more personal and casual than her tv show. She really talks about what she is doing in her world of quilting. The last few were about going to Paducah, going to Houston, to Chicago and her 1 year anniversary with Ricky Timms ( they did that one together with him on the phone with her)... but woven in to her experiences at each of these shows, are also lots of personal stories and interesting tidbits.

I found the podcast very enjoyable. Ms. Anderson has a nice speaking voice - perhaps from years on tv which make for an easy listen. But mostly, she comes across far more down-to-earth and personable in this easy casual format than she did on her show. Of course, I did watch her show and quite enjoyed it.

So if you are thinking of adding a podcast to your life. I recommmend 'Alex Anderson Quilt Connections'

I'll have more reviews as I listen to each of the podcasts. Meanwhile if you have any favorites let me know! Also, if you were to subscribe to a 'Quilty' Podcast, what would you want to listen to?

I also listen to Annie's Quilting Stash. Nadine from Dreamweaver quilts used to do a podcast but stopped. I don't know if you can get the archives or not. Maybe you can still get them from iTunes. HTH.

This is fascinating! I don't currently listen to any podcasts-the closest I get is archives from This American Life-but I will look forward to seeing what you find.:)

Thanks for visiting my blog, Dionne, & for the compliment.
My DH tells people quilters are weird, buying fabric cutting it up sewing it back together then buying more to make scraps!
