Today we’d like to introduce you to Lynn Rinehart and Pamela Cobb.
The Stitch TV Show started in 2015 as the first online quilt talk show. Pam and Lynn met through a local quilt guild and found themselves talking about their passion for quilting all the time, and through a promotional video for their guild quilt show, learned they were good on camera together.
Hosted on YouTube, the show has grown to 4,000 subscribers purely through word of mouth, reaching around the globe to quilters from Australia to Europe, to their own backyard in Atlanta.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Since the show highlights our friendship on camera, of course, there are struggles! Lynn loves orange, and Pam likes teal. That’s a big point of friction.
Just kidding. It’s really not that big a deal.
The day to day struggles of starting a business is real; figuring out timing, fitting in show production around life and day jobs, getting the financing worked out all play into the day to day operations.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Stitch TV Show – what should we know?
We are quilters at heart, so our business revolves around supporting others in that hobby; we design and sell quilt patterns and other notions, we create educational content to help quilters grow their skills from design to stitching, and we are pure content creators with our talk show.
Between the two of us we a combined 45 years of quilt making and teaching, and Lynn is a certified quilt appraiser.

Our experience, ability to communicate and sense of humor are the factors that have played into our success so far.
