Marti has been very busy making videos about using our tools that you can watch here on our Web site. Each movie occupies its own Web page. Wherever you see this Video icon on any of our Web pages, it means you can click on the icon to go to a video about that particular product or technique.
Most videos are 10 minutes or less; some are as short as 3 minutes. Watch from start to finish and refer to the descriptions and time markers if you want to go back and review something specific. Videos are linked step to step so you can watch a series in order without coming back to this page. Thanks for watching! Scroll down for online radio talks and interview articles, too.
And not just for Farmer's Wife blocks! These are great template tips for a lot of projects.

Here's an interview in the Deseret News with lots of info about the early days of the quilting revival that began in the 1970s, back when Marti and Richard's first company, Yours Truly Inc. was the first to promote the rotary cutter for quilting (we're grateful to Quilter's Newsletter for that mention in From the Cover: 15 Memorable Projects for Quilt Lovers.) and developed the It's Okay seminars featuring Mary Ellen Hopkins. Good times!
