What is your ideal quilting vacation?


  1. I really enjoyed seeing your room! Thanks for sharing!

  2. lovely sewing room… much more organized than my area… but I can only hope some day… it will be organized.

    Loved the YOU tube video… and your pod-casts.. Looking forward to more.


  3. Very nice quilt studio, and I enjoyed the video – thanks for posting it. Maybe if I ever get around to straightening mine I'll get the nerve up to do the same, lol. I am really enjoying your podcast Katie, and I know you call yourself a "newbie" quilter, but you sound like a pro to me!

    Keep up the great work!

  4. I enjoyed your tour, you've got a lot packed into your space and you are much more organized than I. I don't get to listen to your podcast regularly yet, but when my kiddos go back to school I'm planning on finally having some "me" time during the day when I can enjoy your past podcasts. My idea quilting vacation would include a trip to an amazing fabric store with an unlimited budget, taking a class or two, and uninterrupted time to spend with my projects. Not very imaginative, but I would love it. What is YOUR ideal quilting vacation?

  5. My ideal quilting vacation would be to take my camping trailer to a great camping spot in the middle of several quilt shops within an hour or less driving distance away. I could then shop as I needed/wanted, check out new stores and sew on the days I stayed in.

    This past weekend my husband and I took a "mini" vacation with our trailer an hour north of where we live. No quilt shop visits, but plenty of sewing time. Pictures of my "sewing studio" are posted on my blog, sewexcitedquilts.com.

    I was in a meeting one time at work and the question was asked, "what would you do if time and money were no object?" My response was to buy a motor home, camp, travel the US and quilt.

    Loved seeing your sewing space.
