QuiltCam!

Just for fun, occasionally I will turn the webcam on in the studio so you can commiserate with my creative mess in progress and sew along with me!

Warning -- it's not always neat in here!  I'm not always dressed well or made up with my hair done ---as always, enter at your own risk!

And just so you know, I sing to the radio ---you may want ear plugs!

When am I on?  SOMETIMES in the evening at 9pm Eastern on week nights, as time allows.

Sometimes in the afternoon on Weekends around 2pm Eastern, as time allows.

My MORNING blog post will usually tell you if I'm going to be able to fit Quilt-Cam in somewhere in my day.  The best way to know if I will be on is to CHECK THE BLOG directly during the day!

And of course, this is not when I am out of town teaching ---It's a busy life!  Quilt-Cam can't be a regular scheduled thing, it's just for fun!

Quilt-Cam is now streaming on Facebook Live and embedded after the fact into the blog posts archived below.

If you are on Facebook -- go to my QuiltvilleFriends Page, like my page and follow me and you will get a notification when I go live from within Facebook. I always send a message ahead of time alerting everyone to the time we are going live so give us a LIKE on Facebook and stay connected!

Posts are also sent through Google+ if you have added me to your circles.
