Make the Most of Your Stash

Many quilters have a stash -- or are working on growing their stash! And now that we're dealing with a pandemic, a stash seems like a great investment, because it keeps our ability to sew and get creative without the need to leave our house. But using your stash can sometimes be intimidating. But don't worry -- Doris Brunette, the editor of Quilt Sampler, shares tips for making the most of you stash!

Reader Tips

Editor Lindsay Mayland shares Reader Tips, a segment where we share your best advice to common quilting struggles. On this episode, we're sharing just-for-fun ideas. As many of us are cooped up inside, we hope some of the ideas spark some creativity or bring some joy during this time!

We love hearing these  ideas from our readers. If you're interested in submitting your own tip for feature in our magazines or on the podcast, send an email of your tip to

Quilt Sampler Announcement

Doris is announcing the featured shops in the Spring/Summer issue of Quilt Sampler, which comes out on May 1! We always love celebrating these shops, but it's a hard time for them right now (and many local quilt shops). You can take virtual tours of all features shops here:

Season Ending

We have an announcement -- this episode is the last episode of this season, season 10. We're taking a two month break for the months of May and June to allow our staff to enjoy the nice weather with their families, continue to produce amazing content in our magazines and online, and plan a new podcast season of fun interviews and helpful tips and tricks! Special thanks to everyone who filled out our podcast survey -- we love all your suggestions on topics you'd love to hear next season and people we should chat with! The survey goes until April 30, so you still have time to get your ideas submitted to us and enter for a chance to win a prize! If you've just joined us on this podcast recently, you're in luck! There are plenty of past episodes to listen to, so check them out! If you've been with us for awhile -- don't worry! We'll be popping in every once in awhile the next few months to check in and share some fun bonus content. We'll be back before you know it!
