2023 Thankful Notes Week 1

In the United States the months of November and December are very busy with holiday celebrations.  So I decided to try something new this year.  Almost all of 2023 I asked the guests that were interviewed on A Quilter’s Life to share something they were thankful for.  Since this was also new for me, I did forget to ask a few of the guests and for that I’m sorry.  I do realize that some other countries have celebrated Thanksgiving already, but I decided to share these Thankful Notes throughout the month of November.

I thought it would be fun if you wanted to play along as you listen and see if you remember each guest.  I have so enjoyed listening to what they are Thankful for.  I have the list of guests along with links to contact them on the episode page (also known as show notes) for this episode if you want more information about them.  Along with their links there is also a link to their episode if you missed their story.

The first couple guests I asked them what they were thankful for, but after that I had them introduce themselves.  So the first Thankful Note is from Tânia Mogari of Tânia Mogari Quilter.  The second Thankful Note is from Lori DeJarnatt of Humble Quilts.

I want to thank each of you that shared what you are thankful for.  This was so much fun to include in the interview process.

    I am thankful for my dear friend Paula who graciously joined me on my quilting journey. She has taught me so much and been a true spiritual mentor not simply a quilting mentor. So many who shared were thankful for their husbands. I have no husband but I am thankful for paula’s husband who has been so supportive and generous with his time and investments financially and emotionally. I have never seen anyone as good as picking out fabrics and putting different fabrics together with a real eye for color and patterns. He has also taught me much in life as well as quilting. His amazing support of Paula is a wonderful example of a true love and patience and understanding.

      Thank You Bev! I would have never gotten into quilting without your support.
