I subscribed to the new magazine Quiltfolk a while back. After reading the first issue, I was hooked. I love everything about it. The subject matter, the writing and even the quality of the paper (I’m very fussy about my paper).
Issue 02 arrived at my door last week. I immediately sat down and read it cover to cover. The magazine focuses on a particular region each time. This issue covers Iowa and without giving too much away… I learned about the very interesting Amana colonies and the wool mills in Amana. There is a wonderful article on the marvelous Judy Martin and I learned lots of fascinating things about Maryanne Fons that I never knew. And... Well, just check out their website (here).
I highly recommend it!
Thank you! I've been hoping to see a magazine like this.ReplyDelete
Are there any patterns in it ?ReplyDelete
Enjoy Wendy !
I hadn't heard of this before. Thanks for broadening my horizons!ReplyDelete
It's lovely! The Amana Colonies in IOWA are so worth the visit if you are ever in the area!!ReplyDelete
Oh yes Debra! I just realized I wrote Ohio instead of Iowa. I guess I am. Hopeless New Englander! I still want to visit Amanda - Iowa!!!Delete
I have issue one, will have to look for issue 2! I'm off to Ohio in a month!ReplyDelete
Ohio. That is where I was born and lived until in my 20's. I do not subscribe to that magazine but maybe I need to think about it.ReplyDelete
Sorry Karen, I meant Iowa. It is tough to get old and think one thing and type another!Delete
This issue is wonderful and highlights quilting in IOWA. Hopefully OHIO will be the subject of the next, if not soon, issue. I read mine cover to cover on a cross-country flight. Next time I hope to drive through Iowa, not over !!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like I need to check this out!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the review. I love to hear what quilters think about books and magazines. By the way, love all your little quilts. Thanks for the offer of feedsacks. If I get stuck, I will let you know.
Thanks for the recommendation! It looks like a great magazine :)ReplyDelete
wow...looks gorgeous but pricey....ReplyDelete
You're the second or third person to recommend this magazine. I wonder if I can find it at Barnes and Noble or some other book store. I like to see before I buy. Thanks for bring it to my attention again.ReplyDelete
wow - do we finally have a good magazine? I'm of to check it out and subscribe!!ReplyDelete
So agree with this, Wendy! In fact, you beat me to it; we are planning to write about the new issue this week. Love this magazine!! It's worth every penny.ReplyDelete
Oh this is great news. I've been so disappointed in the existing publications. I will look to see where I can buy it! Thanks!ReplyDelete
I picked up an issue at Barnes & Noble this month & it's a beautiful magazine.ReplyDelete
I saw this magazine for the first time last night at Barnes and Noble. It is beautiful and one of the first things I noticed, too, was the quality of the paper! Come to think of it, it didn't seem to have so many ads in it either. I think it does have at least one quilt pattern it in. It seems to be mainly about Quilt Folk.....people who are very involved in various aspects of the quilting world but the focus of the articles is not what you would expect. Very interesting!ReplyDelete
Just like that - you got me to subscribe! Thanks for the recommendation!ReplyDelete
Wow, yours is the second recommendation for this magazine I'll had in a couple of days . I'll have to look into it. I love a nice feeling paper too.ReplyDelete
I just ordered issue #2. I want to see it before I spend $75- on a subscription.ReplyDelete
