I'm also a big "Annie" fan and longtime listener to her podcasts and hope we can "see" more of her. I thought she commented awhile back plans were in development for some kind of "videos" on her website - this would be great as "seeing" her tips and techniques work better for me then just "listening"!
My biggest regret is I don't live closer as would love to take in one of her workshop/lectures if I ever had the chance.
I've been a listener of Annie Smith's podcasts, and like Alex, think that she has one of the friendliest voices you'll ever hear. Thank you for bringing her to the Quilt Show. She does wonderful interviews, but did a great job as the one being interviewed today. I agree that as quilters, we often are too drawn to the color choices, but forget the importance of contrast to make our quilts shine.
