Ep. 4: Show Notes for Finding Your Creative Mojo

We’re talking about what Merriam-Webster defines as a “magical power”—our quilty MOJO—that desire and impulse to create. Where do we find it and how do we use it? First, Lori speaks to our guest, Cathy Renaldo, a Customer Care Specialist at SVP Worldwide and Husqvarna Viking Educator, in addition to being a lifelong quilter, former quilt shop owner, quilt designer, and teacher with longarm quilting expertise. Then, Lori, Tracy and Carrie talk about what sparks their creativity and inspires them. Lastly, they ruffle some terminology feathers in our “Fine Finishes” segment. Stick around and you might find some quilty MOJO of your own! This is the quilting podcast you’ve been waiting for—take a listen!
