Please join me in welcoming Pippa Eccles to our editorial team!

8 Aug 2009

I have very exciting news: Pippa Eccles, new assistant editor, has just joined the Quilting Arts editorial team!

As Quilting Arts has grown over the years, launched a few other publications, expanded into TV, etc., we've been eager for another smart, savvy individual to join our editorial team. We are so happy this person is Pippa. She is a recent graduate of Harvard, has a sincere love and appreciation for quilting and sewing, and has proved to us in her first week here that she's a team player and is happy to dive right in. We are thrilled to have her join our team, and I hope you'll join me in giving her a warm welcome to our community...

Dale, yes, it does sound like a Nascar race is taking place outside my office, doesn't it? We work in a more rural community just west of Boston,  but we taped during rush hour (probably not the best idea). Thanks so much for welcoming Pippa!

Welcome Pippa!

Pokey and company are nice people. Pippa and Pokey, that sounds cute. Be careful pulling out of the parking lot, that street sounds very busy.

Welcome Pippa!

Pokey is so great to work with, as is all the QA and CPS crew.  I'm jealous of you getting to be out there with all of them!

Hopefully you will get to make a trip out here to Loveland, or I can make a trip out there to Stow (hint, hint) soon so we can meet!

Take care, and let me know if there is ever anything I can do for you.
