Katrinka Poage

Katrinka Poage was one of the first people to sign up to receive emails to find out when a new episode of A Quilter’s Life was available.  Through my sister I knew that Katrinka not only liked to listen, but was a quilter herself.  And each week as I sent out the emails I hoped to get to visit with her some day.  Well, that day finally came and we had such a good visit.   I’m impressed with her statement that she’s not a “give upper” because she pushes through where others would have given up.

    This was fun to listen to.
    Paula you did a great job of editing our very long talk.
    I hope to meet you in person some time.

        I loved to hear Trink’s story. I think I finally found a twin in that I really like jumping into a picture of a quilt and figuring it out. Sometimes that works and sometimes not. Fun podcast… can’t wait for another. Our sewing stories all are different but amazing how they are woven through our lives.

    I’m Hope Nicely from Clifton Forge, VA. I’m not a quilter, but I am a fan of Katrinka Poage and was excited to hear this interview! I have the honor of serving with her as a hospice volunteer. And I’ve recently had the pleasure of getting to know her better through a Bible study we’ve participated in together. She is a truly unique, gifted lady and a real prayer warrior! You should hear how the Lord uses her to “quilt” a prayer with words! Thank you for this podcast…God Bless!

    Hi, Trink, I learned a lot about you I didn’t know. I admire you even more now! This was fun to listen to.
