Thanks for posting this. It makes sense, and I am intrigued with the idea that the industry has been "bloated." Also interesting is the idea that there are "Legacy" quilters (like me) and "Modern" quilters.

Good points brought up. Obviously from a "modern"point of view.

Very interesting - anyone who thinks that all Legacy quilters are working from stash and not buying should go with my friends and I on shopping sprees! I keep saying "stash, stash,stash then I get in a shop and say oh look at all the new beautiful fabric

thanks for this posting. I left a comment on the site--my point being that as older quilters we owe it to the young folks to make quilting accessible to them.
