A chat about quilts' historical role & overcoming imposter syndrome on the Crafty Planner Podcast

Sandi Hazlewood of Crafty Planner does a very thoughtful and well curated series of podcasts about the world of textiles. She does in-depth interviews with makers, curators, collectors and others she believes are doing exciting work and are having an influence by what they do.

Naturally, I was very excited to be invited to speak with her. I warned her I can be a "talker." We spoke for almost 2 hours, and I said, "Please edit." She has created an enjoyable episode and I hope you enjoy hearing some of my history and the things that inspired and influenced me on my journey with quilts.
