This week's guest is Mary Fons, famous for learning to quilt from scratch on a public stage, bringing new quilters into their comfort zone, and pushing the boundaries of how quilting is taught with her engaging, delightful personality. Her quirky demeanour takes a front stage in her content again and again. She has been a TV host, a writer, magazine editor, a lecturer, and has a passion for quilt history research.
She creates original, raw engaging content across all media, which is astonishing because social media changes every single day and on the podcast I share the best bits of her story with you.

Bridget O'Flaherty is an award-winning textile artist and all around creative inspiration who specializes in thread painting. Bridget has a Bachelor of Arts with an Environmental Studies Major and she just graduated with Honours.
This is such a valuable conversation to have, and she really has her toes in the water when it comes to the topic of sustainability and she carries that expertise into quilting. She brings the conversation forward, not to say that we should never buy fabric again, but with the notion that we can have a good conversation about how we can take little steps to start making a difference.
