  • Tricks and Treats

    What's that saying: When the cat's away the mice will play? My husband's been out of town for the past week, and while he was gone, play I did… A few things have been on my mind lately: my beautiful hometown of San Francisco, the Grateful Dead (who have a new CD set out ), and of course Halloween...

  • 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...

  • Quilting Arts GIFTS and a Fabric Giveaway

    I feel such a huge sense of elation, relief and utter joy; I want to jump up and down, dance around the office, or go run along the beach and holler into the breeze. Why am I so giddy? The Quilting Arts GIFTS issue officially went to press today. I'm not one to use exclamation points very often,...

  • 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.

  • Why The Sopranos Quilt Didn't Get Made

    As my friends know all too well, I am slightly obsessed with HBO's The Sopranos , and inspired by a recent call for entries for an upcoming show in Long Beach , I came darn close to formally entering an art quilt dedicated to my Jersey boys. But there was only one event on this planet that could...

  • QA TV Series 200 Sneak Peek

    We’ve started taping for Series 200 of QA TV and I thought to give you a special, behind-the-scenes sneak-peek at how we put this together. It all begins months in advance when Kathie Stull (owner/producer) and I discuss the themes for each episode. At minimum, I’m typically responsible for a three-minute...

  • <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...

  • Quilting Arts TV

    For me ringing in the New Year often means a cozy night curled on the couch, TV clicker in hand, watching a frost-bitten *** Clark countdown to midnight. However, this New Year’s is a little more thrilling… because that stroke of midnight means Quilting Arts TV will soon be making its debut around the...

  • QA TV Becomes a Reality!

    We're mid-way through taping Quilting Arts TV so I thought it would be fun to share my journey with you thus far. Let the pictures do the talking... I had to chuckle when I boarded my flight to the taping and saw this on the back of the seat in front of me. We've all seen this critical, life...

  • Oh the weather outside is delightful

    The calendar says the summer solstice will blessedly be upon us in a few days, but in Editorial Land, this can only mean one thing: How are those holiday issues shapin' up? Admittedly I'm still thawing out from last winter, but while I'm deadheading flowers and grilling veggie burgers it's...
