Segment 3: Hand Stitching by Machine! Amid the hubbub of setup day at International Quilt Market, Jodie meets Kelly Laws at the Baby Lock booth to learn about an intriguing new machine she heard about. Using just one thread in the bobbin, the Sashiko machine mimics the look of hand sewing, like that of traditional Japanese hand stitching or hand quilting. Kelly puts the Sashiko machine through its paces.
Segment 4: After Hours at Quilt Market
Quilt Market doesn’t end when the show floor closes. Business moves to other locations. The place to be after hours during Quilt Market is the Hyatt bar, so Jodie and Patrick head there to see who they might run into. As they sat down with her, Heidi Kaisand, National Sales Manager for APQS (American professional Quilting Systems), was just getting her meal after traveling to Houston and then working all day to set up the booth—and it was after 9 PM! Designer and author Kay Caps Cross of Cross Cuts Quilting and the Fons & Porter team all chatted with Jodie and Patrick, telling them what they do on those long days at Market.
