    On a special Thursday edition of Fiber Hooligan (9/19/13) my guests will be some of the gang from Team STITCHES. I get lots of requests and suggestions about who to have as guests on the show. The one that has been most requested is the team that makes STITCHES Expos happen. People have told me that they want to hear how the shows work and what it takes to make an event like STITCHES happen. So I've decided to have Mavis Smith (our customer service manager and the person who takes care of the teachers), Lisa Mannes (who does a lot of our marketing & PR and who takes all the pictures at the shows), Kristi Miller (a.k.a. Knitters Brat who takes care of all the vendors and sponsors in the Markets) on the show next week for a special (extra) episode on Thursday at 11:00 am (central time). 
    They are going to be talking about all thing STITCHES and giving highlights to our upcoming show in Hartford, CT in November. With a little luck they won't tell too many stories about me (smile). Oh right… And we're probably going to be giving away a few prizes for our live listeners.
    These are remarkable women. I hope you'll join us for this show.

    I Need Stitches

    in Religion

    What Happens when you do need stiches? There are so many of us that are struggling to overcome emotional wounds and spiritual wounds that have not been healed. 
    The word healed (or Hebrew word - rapha) means to mend/repair/physician by stitching.
    So when you say, “I need stitches” you are also saying that I need the stitcher, who in the medical field is called a physician; which a physician is what Jesus is to us, of whom we called our healer; a healer that mends together and conjoins back together our physical, emotional and spiritual wounds.

    Love Liberty & Lip Gloss with Glamour Model Abigail Rich

    in Lifestyle

    Abigail Rich returns to Love Liberty & Lip Gloss on April 23 at 7 p.m. Eastern:

    Abigail was born in Dallas Texas and abandoned by her mother when she was only two months old. She grew up with foster families until she was 17 years old. All through her school years she knew that she wanted to help people. She became a Paramedic right out of high school and quickly moved up to flight medic on a air ambulance helicopter. In the early 2000’s, she was working on the medical helicopter when it crashed. Abigail was critically injured and had to undergo three lifesaving surgeries receiving over 400 stitches and over 200 staples as well as numerous steel plates for her broken bones. The doctors told her family that she would not survive. After 6 weeks in the intensive care unit, Abigail proved them wrong when she woke up. Then after another 3 months she walked out of the Hospital on her own. After her recovery, Abigail concluded that life is too short and she wanted to still help people and show them that they can overcome life’s hurtles. At the same time, she intended to enjoy her precious gift of life.

    Through an odd twist of fate, Abigail became a professional Glamour Model. Abigail has worked as a trade show model, modeled at fashion shows, even as a spokes model promoting products and services, to becoming an Internationally published Glamour Model.

    Amber Schamel and Susan J. Reinhardt!

    in Books

    Multi-published author Amber Schamel writes riveting stories that bring HIStory to life. She has a passion for history, books and her Savior. This combination results in what her readers call "historical fiction at its finest". A homeschool graduate from a family of 12 children, Amber found her calling early in life. First published at age 21, she has continued to hone her craft and was honored to be a judge of this year's ACFW Genesis contest. Between ministry, family and working in their family businesses, Amber loves to connect with readers. Find her on the Stitches Thru Time blog, or on any of the major social media sites.


    Susan J. Reinhardt started off as a non-fiction writer. Her publishing credits include: LIVE!, Vista, The RevWriter Resource, The Secret Place, and numerous other periodicals and anthologies.

    She changed gears and began writing fiction after an experience in Gettysburg. Surrounded by history, she *heard* the voices of the forefathers as fading echoes. Attempts to write a poem or non-fiction piece were unsuccessful, so she put the thoughts aside and prayed.

    Eight months later, Susan and her late husband were discussing that event when he declared, "That's it! That's your book, and it will be written in 4 months and be called Ghosts of the Past."

    The first draft was written in 4 months and underwent a name change to Echoes of the Past. Later, it became The Moses Conspiracy. Now, after 2 years of caring for her husband through cancer until his death and 6 years of honing her fiction skills, The Moses Conspiracy has been published.

    A widow, stepmom, daughter, and follower of Jesus Christ, Susan enjoys reading, couponing, gardening, family time, and searching for small treasures in antique shops.
