Greetings Boutique Cafe Viewers! It's been awhile since our last show, my apologies for taking a break from podcasting over the past few months due to illness in my pregnancy. Thankfully, in a moment of renewed strength today I found this video in our "Boutique Cafe Vault" from Fall Quilt Market last year. This unseen interview is with the amazing and lovely Anna Maria Horner! I truly hope you'll enjoy it and leave comments for Anna Maria as well.

In our chat, we discuss her book "Seams to Me", Good Folks fabric line, new patterns available, and her exciting pregnancy coinciding with a Little Folks fabric line as well. Since we taped this back in Fall last year, Anna Maria's beautiful little son Roman indeed arrived and is beyond precious. Congratulations again Anna Maria! XO!

Kim is savvy business woman with great ideas and with the most kind heart, I was so impressed with her caring and wanting to make a difference and that's what their new campaign is all about. I knew that Boutique Cafe had to be a part of sharing the news, when something like this comes along you want to do whatever you can to be a part of it! Please watch this two minute video on how you can not only shop her site and create something wonderful for your children, but you can actually make a difference with your purchase of the new Miracle Pattern.
