There is so much to learn about quilt history, curation of shows, care of quilts and preservation. And I love the topics and guests that the six know-it-alls have on their show.These talks just work because these six knowledgeable women come at the topics from all different angles. It is important to them to bring the viewer along to learn quilt history. They want to bring about an understanding. They want to let quilt makers know how much value they can get by looking at older quilts.Link to the Weekly GiveawayLink to the Six Know-It-Alls Facebook PageLink to the Quilt District Website

Kim Neidzweicki is a sewist, quilter, and pattern designer with a passion for social media. One thing I loved hearing from her on the podcast is that no one is really a social media guru or maven because it changes every single day. We get massive doses of the unknown from social media and there is so much pressure to go viral. It is intimidating. You finally figure out how to make a reel on Instagram and then TikTok comes along and steals the show. The hardest part of it all is just going gloves off and diving into the ring to try everything. It’s new to everyone. We are not alone. And Kim is out there spreading the word about how people can grow.Watch the Youtube Trailer here: the Weekly Podcast Giveaway here: Kim's incredible blog here:
