Part of the reason that I finally subscribed to The Quilt Show was to see this episode. Nina was as wonderful as I expected! She is truly a wealth of knowledge. I cannot wait to work with watercolor paper and cork then dye them! ... I love Quiltfolk - I discovered it when they covered my state then bought all the back issues up to that point because yes, you want the whole set, just like a set of encyclopedias. Thank you Mary for sharing your journey - I will always look at your name in Quiltfolk and think of your journey and passion for writing. Will also pray for your health.

Great Show. Love Nina and Mary.
However my Barnes and Noble store here in San Diego
doesn't sell the Quiltfolk magazine consistently. I have missed a lot of the magazine because of this. The store even said it was to expensive to carry. I know I can order it on line but I would like to shop and support local
business . Thanks for a good show.
