Ep. 6: Show Notes for Passing on the Legacy

Lori, Tracy, and Carrie jump right into a discussion about passing the sewing and quilting legacy onto future generations. Then, Luana Rubin (owner of eQuilter) and her daughter Sophie join Tracy and her daughter Cydney in our studio to continue the conversation on how quilting has bridged the generational gap in their families. And, like always, we’ll finish up with our “Fine Finishes” segment—today, we talk quilt labels. This is the quilting podcast you’ve been waiting for—take a listen!
