Just Wanna Quilt Podcast


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

Social media is now part of the workplace -- whatever kind of workplace that is -- crafters, K-12, manufacturing, corporations, consulting firms, everything.

This book takes you through many of the legal issues arising from website creation to hiring to NLRB and Section 7 to influencers. 

A must have for any business.
