  • Collage & Quilt Opportunities Abound (and Meet the Joneses)

    Virginia Spiegel’s e-newsletter popped into my in-box earlier this week, letting me know that another Collage Mania auction to raise funds for the American Cancer Society will be taking place. Virginia’s efforts to raise funds and rally artists for ACS are unparalleled; she has raised more than $165...

  • Thermofax Screen Printing

    A sample of my hand-dyed and screen-printed fabrics. What would you do if you had a month off and could do any one activity? If I could take this kind of time, I'd scamper off to some secret destination (preferably a small creekside cottage in Sedona), and shlep plenty of Procion dyes, Jacquard and...

  • I’ve been tagged, News for ATC Trade at International Quilt Festival/Long Beach, and a Fat Quarter Giveaway!

    Art quilter Mary Stori tagged me earlier this spring and as I just enjoyed a three-day weekend, I had a little time on my hands to finally put to paper a few bits about me. (And if you want to skip all that and jump to Quilt/ Collage news and the Fat Quarter Giveaway, move along to #7!) 7 Tidbits: 1...

  • <Blank>1

    Apologies for the two-week absence, but I have been bowled over by a few important deadlines this month and I’ve also managed to catch the flu (no fun). While I sip chicken broth, huddled under my great grandmother’s quilt, I thought to share some happenings and opportunities: See what we make you do...

  • Odds and Ends

    Almost here! 1000 Artist Trading Cards is not available until next month, but I got my advanced copy a short while ago. What I love most about this gallery-style book is that these ATCs bridge both the art quilt and collage worlds. Lots of styles, themes, and techniques represented with your work. We'll...

  • Seven days until Houston!

    Now the countdown really begins--one week until the Houston festivities commence! Quilting Arts Magazine/Cloth Paper Scissors® are taking out four booths in the Make It University section (right smack in the middle of the vendor area) and we are planning for a really exciting, creative time. I'll...

  • Interview with Debbi Crane

    Once upon a time, in a land far, far away (code for cyberspace) a lonely, art-starved editor thought to free herself from her type-filled, copyediting, desk-chained days by hosting an ATC blog swap. Soon, news of the blog swap spread like spilled walnut ink, and artists from all regions of our crackle...

  • In Thanks

    I’m simply overwhelmed with the outpouring of support I’ve gotten over the past week. Thanks everyone for the kind words on my father. I’ve been feeling a maelstrom of emotions: grief, of course, coupled with compassion for all of you dealing with cancer or caring for a loved one with cancer; gratified...

  • Fabric Collage Postcards and ATCs

    I just got the sweetest letter yesterday from a seven-year-old boy named Will. I met him this past spring in Chicago at Make It U! and I remember finding him staring up at the wall of fabric ATCs we had displayed. Eyes wide, mouth agape, and neck craned at an impossible angle, he was obviously taking...

  • Summer Reads

    If you submitted ATCs for the blog swap in May, I’ll be sending mine to you in mid-July. So sorry it’s taken me a couple of months, but we’ve had a rather intense publishing schedule for both May and June. I also might have missed some people for the Grant of Rights forms, and I’ll send those along in...

  • Quilt Market News & More

    It’s been an exciting and busy May for us at Quilting Arts headquarters. Not only do we have a lot of material going to press, but we also visited beautiful Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN for the Spring Quilt Market. I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty and cultural diversity of Minneapolis, a city in...

  • The first official blog swap

    I've been M.I.A. lately, simply because we have our hands in a lot of projects here at headquarters. One of our endeavors is pulling together artwork for a book on mixed-media ATCs. You heard it here first (well, unless you were in Chicago): Rockport and I are collaborating to bring you 1000 Mixed...

  • Surfacing

    We returned from Chicago late Sunday night/ Monday morning, and three days later we’ve finally chiseled our tired, groggy selves off the floor. Thanks so much to everybody who joined us in Chicago last week. We were stunned by the sheer number of people interested in taking the workshops, and we’re eager...
