Date January 2017

Leah Day is an Internet sensation.  She titles herself as an Online Quilting Instructor.  She is an award-winning quilter.  She is an entrepreneur.  She teaches people how to quilt, piece, and be confident in their abilities.  Her name is famous in the quilting world.   She runs a successful business, with assistance from her husband and father.   Here is her bio.  I am interested in chatting with her about building the Leah Day empire.
