  1. If your interested in quilting there is a show on PBS called Craft in America and the episode called "Industry" episode 12 has a segment on quilting in America. Very informative and quite fun to watch. Then in the same episode there is an awesome segment on woodworking in a boat shop in Maine!!

  2. Thank you for the shout-out, Chris, Dyami, and Tom!
