  1. Hi, Just wanted to tell you that I realy like that I am able to watch your shows. I only have one commet–I really can not hear the peoplel talking–have your slide bar all the way loud and my speekers all the way loud and the people are just whispering.. Is it my computer or your sound system. Most of the comercials are a bit lowder but not a whole lot.
    Any suggestions.

    • Shirley I just listened to it and yes, when we talk it is a little lower than the open and commercials, but only a smidge. The parts are of course recorded at different time, but when edited all are brought up to the same level. Differet mics come across differently though and since we tape Quilt Out Loud on location our surroundings don’t always give us the best acoustics. That’s what you’re hearing. No way around that. Well, maybe with a prime time TV budget!

    • Donna,
      I bought it online, I think maybe I saw it in a catalog. Can’t recall which one though. Sorry!

  3. Where can I purchase a Bowen needle threader? I could not find the item on line. Do I have the name wrong?
