You asked for it, we listened. We are excited to bring you The Quilters Circle Podcast, where our host Ashley Hough will interview various quilters about their lives and stories. Ashley Hough has been sewing for over 20 years, first learning how from her mother at a very young age. When first starting out, she stuck to mastering commercial patterns before venturing into creating her own. Her patterns have been featured in Sew News, Sew It All, and she has even been on Sew It All TV. Quilting has become a new passion for Ashley.
What started as learning the basics quickly turned into designing her own patterns, – like her first quilt that included curved seams and hand appliqué! She was even lucky enough to have it featured in one of Quilty’s “This is My Quilt” episodes.
Ashley loves all things crafty, from sewing to knitting, crochet to quilting, and everything in between. When she isn’t working on a new project or learning a different technique she loves teaching her passion to others.
Nicki began sewing when she was young, studied Apparel Design in college and went on to work for several sewing publications. Currently she writes patterns, films instructional videos and answers sewing questions in a monthly Q&A series for National Sewing Circle. She lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with her husband, daughter and red worm colony.
Andrea has loved sewing and being crafty since she was a little kid. She opened her business, Happy Cloud Creations, in 2011 after she became a stay-at-home mom. She runs her shop out of her home and loves creating all sorts of things! Her favorite hobbies are sewing, quilting, and knitting.
