One of the most fun things about taping Quilty are all the wonderful guests we have on the show. From the folks who bring quilts for the “This Is My Quilt” shows to the professionals from BabyLock who come and help us learn about the Tiara, the Sashiko Machine, and all kinds of awesome feet and stitches on the machines we love at Quilty HQ… And all the expert quilter friends we have who share their expertise and knowledge with me (Mary) and you (Quilty viewers.)

We’re gearing up to tape the show in a few weeks in Chicago. We’ve got amazing shows for you; lots of demos, lots of tips, lots of beautiful fabric from our amazing sponsors and the best thread and batting around (that’s Aurifil and Fairfield, respectively.) 🙂

So keep watching not only for new shows every week, a new batch in a few months, and for a really great update to the site! That will roll out in a number of weeks, too, and I’m as excited as anyone to see what magic their working behind the scenes.

See you on set!
