Laura chats with Pokey Bolton

Hi everyone

If you follow us on Instagram, then you might have already seen that I joined Pokey Bolton on her Instagram Live this week. We’ve known Pokey for years and just love her enthusiasm for art and textiles. She’s always been super generous in her support and appreciation of our work. Way back when she founded Quilting Arts magazine we were featured in the magazine and were even guest columnists for a while. You may also have seen Quilting Arts on TV, I think we appear in Season 1. So it was great to have the opportunity to catch up with Pokey and have a chat.

We talk about the Sketchbook Challenge, I share a little flick through one of my current sketchbooks and we take a look at the quilts I have in progress on my design wall.

If you missed the Live chat you can watch a recording of it over on Pokey’s IGTV channel. Here’s a link. If you don’t already follow her, please do, there are lots of other chats with textile artists that you can watch on her channel. Plus you might also like to check out her Crafting a Life website and find out about her next event Craft Napa: Uncorked at Home, 2021.

Thanks for watching the interview. Hope you enjoy it! Do pop a comment on it if you do and tag me in @laurakemshall
