My friend Valerie contacted me a little over a week ago and asked what do you think of this idea?  She is the brains behind our new venture and I am so excited to share this journey with you.

Exciting news!

Do you live in southern Ontario, and love everything Quilty? Hungry for more quilt talks? Now that we have discovered this new way to meet our favourite quilter instructors, we want MORE! QuiltTalk aims to bring them directly to you.. more ZOOM talks, more often! Early bird login for local quilters.

QuiltTalk will bring you a diverse selection of leaders and innovators in the quilting community. We’ll cover every topic imaginable, as long as it is quilt related. Working with scraps, fabric design, special techniques….. you name it, we will host it.

We are still in the process of signing up speakers.. but here is what we have for you so far!

  1. Hi Sandy,

    Hope you are well. So happy to get your email with your new project Quilt Talk. I have signed up for the first Zoom talk. Can’t wait.

    We have been staying home at the cottage for the last few weeks. It’s beautiful up north with lots of snow and my sewing machine is there. I am still struggling with ordering fabric online. It is never the colour or feel that I want. So I must start buying bundles to get colours that go together.

    I had not embraced the zoom world as yet but it is time. I miss everyone.

    I am sure you miss your Pickleball too. Are you able to see any of your kids?

    Thinking of you and wanted to say hello.

    Take care Leanne 🤗
