Welcome to Just Wanna Quilt

Just Wanna Quilt Podcast

Season 5 is starting Feb 6, 2023.


We done over 400 interviews over the last four years.  Jump in anywhere!  The interviews are recorded for research into quilting, crafts, and related legal issues that arise, and we share them with the public.  There is little editing. We also tend to post in spurts, as I finish with the research.  We also have a lot of fun and talk about all kinds of things. Learn more here
