One of the new ideas I have for IndieQuilter is doing a “Favorite Quilty People” post once in awhile on my favorite quilters in the industry.
I’m going to start it with Sandi Sawa Hazlewood also known as The Crafty Planner.
I’ve been listening to The Crafty Planner podcasts for quite awhile now and it is hands down my FAVORITE podcast all around. Sandi is so very good at keeping the conversation/interview rolling without any of those weird uncomfortable moments you often are subject to in other podcasts. (You must know what I mean!)
She also does not censor her guests, which for me is such a treat! She is quite frank and honest upfront and will mention in the intro if it is a particularly spicy episode! No worries, it’s nothing over the top, but the freedom allows the guests to be completely themselves. That’s what I really love about this podcast. You get to hear the “real” artist, not the polished “interview person” that we often become for these sort of things!
I got a little inside scoop when I had a little chat with Sandi about choosing her as the first Favorite Quilty/Crafty People, and lets just say, if you are going to Quilt Con 2016 (or especially if you can’t make it) you will want to hear who she’s talking with next episode. That’s all the hint I am giving!
Until the new episode airs though, try taking a listen to some of my favorite episodes on The Crafty Planner:
#13 Mary Fons
#25 Victoria Findlay Wolfe
#30 Lizzy House
#34 Tula Pink
#39 Karen McTavish
This should be enough to get you addicted to the podcast. Also, make sure and pop over to the blog side of Crafty Planner, she has reviews and links and info about the quilting and craft industry. Thank you Sandi, for creating such a great resource for our industry!
Are there any other quilting podcast you listen to? I’d love to hear about them! Or maybe you HAVE a podcast? Leave a comment and tell us all about it!
