  • 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...

  • Bye Dad...

    My father passed away yesterday; he died of lung cancer and died young (age 59). He got the diagnosis in late June and went very rapidly. I thought about whether or not it was appropriate for me to be posting something so personal on this blog, but decided that I’d really love for something positive...

  • 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...

  • Paper/Fabric ATCs

    My latest obsession—experimenting with paper and stitch © Patricia Bolton Two weeks ago, I committed to making more than 200 ATCs for Spring Quilt Festival/Chicago next week (what was I thinking?!), so I’ve been in my studio late at night experimenting with loads of techniques. Here’s a fun way to stitch...

  • Whoa baby!

    This is too cool for school... check out the loot that Jacquard Products sent us in addition to our order for fabric paints we placed with them last week: I asked for some product to help with my workshops for Make It U! and I'm positively bowled over by their generosity. They sent bags of small...

  • Countdown to Chicago and news on ATCs

    I'm so thrilled––International Quilt Festival/Spring and Make It U! with Cloth Paper Scissors® is just three short weeks away. I recently received the floor map of where the Make It U! section will be, and it's smack in the middle of the quilt show—wonderful as it will certainly draw the crowds...

  • Welcome!

    I’ve always been slow to catch onto anything hip (proven by the fact that I’ve yet to watch a single episode of “Project Runway”). Yet I’d get email after email from friends and colleagues who’d apprise me that they were journaling on the Net, and for me to come visit. Finally, I gave into curiosity...
