Greetings from the newest Quilting Arts team member!

28 Oct 2010

 I have been repeatedly told throughout my internship, and now more recently with my new position as an assistant editor, that I am one lucky girl to be working at Quilting Arts Magazine. And don’t I know it!  I can’t think of a better place to cultivate inspiration for quilting  (and crafting of all sorts). With new ideas, submissions, and art constantly coming into the office, it is all but impossible not to be inspired to go home and try new techniques.  I grew up in Stow, the location

 of the editorial headquarters of Quilting Arts Magazine and Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine, and my first real job was as an office assistant here.  I have worked summers at Quilting Arts for years, and every summer I was inspired to pick up a new craft.  In 2009, while attending my first International Quilt Festival I was bitten by the quilting bug and haven’t looked back. 

Now that I am full time at Quilting Arts (!!!) I am thrilled to be even more involved with the goings-on here.  Next week I will be attending the International Quilt Festival in Houston and I can’t wait to see what everyone has been up to! The art at these shows is absolutely astounding, and I am always amazed by the new techniques that people come up with.  

We are working on several special publications in addition to our regular magazine. Right now I am most excited about the next issue of our digital eMag, Quilting Arts in Stitches, which is an interactive publication full of videos, pictures, and tons of cool, interactive features.  More on this soon!

In addition to our publications, there are a lot of new, fun, interactive activities being worked on right now.  I am particularly excited about the “Facebook Fan of the week” that will be starting this Sunday.  Each week we are going to ask Quilting Arts Facebook fans to share a link to one of their blog posts. At the end of the week we will pick a winner and they will be announced (and featured) on our Facebook page, as well as briefly interviewed by me; the interview will be posted on this blog.  So get your blog posts ready to share for a chance to become the first Facebook fan of the week!

 I just want to thank everyone for their warm welcome into the Quilting Arts community, and can’t wait to share the latest Quilting Arts news with you!
