Merrily joins Jodie at Quilt Market to you tips on getting started in your own longarm quilting business. From choosing a machine to setting up your business, this is what you need to know.

Week 2

Mark Lipinski knocks on the door of master applique artist and fourteen-time cover (quilt) girl Karen Kay Buckley in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Mark tours her incredible new studio which was previously her husband’s man cave. Then she shows Mark where and how she creates her spectacular quilts including the knockout on her design wall. For Karen it’s all by hand from design through stitching.

Week 3

Watch the second part of Mark’s doorknock visit with Karen Kay Buckley and be ready to be wowed by her quilt show. You will see why her hand appliqued medallion quilts have made many a magazine cover. As Mark says about her black quilt, “insane!” Then Karen takes Mark “around the corner” to her fabric stash. Next Mark and Jodie review the latest book from Martingale by Kim Diehl and Laurie Baker.
