We’ve found the middle of the week again and Debbie Rowley and I set out to do a show offering tips for beginning stitchers. The show ended up being an interesting discussion about topics such as project difficulty, how many tools we actually need, and maximizing stitching time. We enjoyed having the discussion and hope it will get you thinking. Sunday’s guest is Ilke Cochrane of Mabel Figworthy’s Fancies. Don’t forget Fiber Talk needle minders and the various discounts available at Sassy Jacks.–Gary
It’s Wednesday and Debbie Rowley’s hiatus ends as she returns with a new grandchild and a new home. This week’s topics include the Queen’s Sampler, Fiber Talk needle minders, moving stash, standing and stitching, and several other topics. Sunday’s guest: Joanna Somers of The Plum Stitchery–Gary
We are at the peak of the week and Debbie Rowley showed up to talk with Gary about the Royal School of Needlework, pilot classes, her manicure, new designs, perle cotton, threads in general, and color cards. Sunday’s guests: Morgan Fowles, trustee, and Emma Doggart, head of marketing at the Royal School of Needlework.–Gary
It’s the day after Tuesday and Debbie Rowley shows up to talk about her recent trip to Scotland, the tapestry/embroidery she discovered, and the private lesson she took at the Wemyss School of Needlework on the grounds of the Wemyss Castle. It’s an interesting conversation filled with many insights into needleart activities in the UK. Sunday’s guest: Phillipa Turnbull of The Crewel Work Company.
Wednesday is prompt, as always, and it’s Debbie Rowley’s turn in our co-host rotation. We hope you’re enjoying this new arrangement. This week’s topics include the Dayton, Ohio EGA Chapter 2019 symposium, teaching confidence, ANG, EGA, and business travel and downtime. Sunday’s guest: Ann-Marie Anderson-Mayes of Beautiful Stitches
The middle of the week has arrived on time and Debbie Rowley joins Gary to talk about not waiting until retirement to do needlework, preparing linen, Canvas A Needlepoint Adventure, the Needlearts Mystery Retreat, and several other topics, related or not. We also simply talked a lot. Regardless, we’re confident you’ll enjoy the conversation. Sunday’s guest: Ilke Cochran of Mabel Figworthy’s Fancies

Wednesday has arrived and so has Debbie Rowley to fill in for Christine. We started with a list of topics and, after 45 min., discovered that we had basically ignored that list. However, you do get to learn about threads, thread tension, traveling and stitching, Debbie’s future studio, and a variety of other stitching and non-stitching topics. Sunday’s guest: Vonna Pfeiffer
