A Little Light Reading

Are you familiar with Quiltfolk magazine? Last year I became a subscriber and have thoroughly enjoyed travelling throughout the States with each new issue. 





Recently they offered free shipping on a bundle of back issues to their Canadian subscribers so I jumped at the opportunity. 


Five new issues have arrived so I'm getting ready for a personal mini-retreat to pour over each one of them. I'm headed to Tennessee, Eastern Massachusetts, Michigan, Utah and Vermont, not necessarily in that order.




Each issue explores makers and their stories from an individual state, from traditional to modern and everything in between. It is ad-free and filled with great photography, making it a visual treat totally focused on the craft.




As is the way with quilts, the back stories add layers of interest to what the eye beholds - a rich source of inspiration that gets the creative juices flowing.




The magazines are too good not to share so they go into a rotation with my quilty friends who are equally enthralled. I'm off to make a pot of tea....M

What a beautiful read. Hearing the back story of a quilt is always interesting. I guess that's why blogs are still a good way to hear those stories.

Those look fabulous, more like books than just magazines. I'll have to look for them next time I'm at Barnes & Noble!

I subscribed for the first time this year too, as a holiday gift. They really are really more like books than magazines.

I wish that I lived near enough to be in on the rotation! lol I love these, but just can't afford to subscribe. They are very well put together.:)
