Alex and Ricky enjoyed the talents of the irrepressible Mark Lipinski on the set of Show 1813: Quilts of Valor and Intent.
Mark talks about making Quilts of Valor and recounts how he met the Vietnam Vet whose remembrance bracelet he wore in the 70s. Having held many jobs in the quilting industry, he discusses magazine publishing, online show hosting and participation in many quilt-related projects. He candidly talks about his loss of enthusiasm for quilting and how he gained it back via a more mindful perspective, which he learned from the Slow Food movement. Since Mark "lost" a quilt for six years, he also talks about the importance of documenting quilts and shares an easy way to label a quilt in the form of a letter. He is currently working on his life legacy quilt blocks, a work in progress that captures the big moments in his life.
Show 1813 debuts Sunday, June 19, 2016.
