Summer 2014

Our Summer 2014 issue (on sale June 10) is filled with over 13 fresh colorful projects, from bed sized quilts to wall décor, that will brighten your home. Lavender Fields, designed by Patti Carey, is one that can be displayed on a wall or used as a throw. Patti is a creative pattern designer and skilled machine quilter, and our featured artist. The trendy delicious colors in Gelato make this a fun quilt to piece and display, much like Ophelia, which features sunny Dresden Plate motifs appliquéd onto a luxurious damask background. Check out some of the beach-themed projects. From the whimsical, Cooling Off, to soft and sophisticated, Drifting, you'll find a variety of seascape and summer vacation designs. Don’t miss the fun smaller projects you can stitch up in a weekend, a sampling of some of the latest fabrics currently available, and various ways to get involved with online quilt swaps in the social media feature.
In our spring issue (#41) on page 27, the names under the photos of Henry Khalilian and Rich Bolog,
both of EBI Fabrics, were listed incorrectly. Please note the correct listing to the right.

Book Giveaway!

Publisher Michele Merin of Direction Press and her staff have scoured the United States to locate needle art shops for the ninth edition of NeedleTravel: Fiber & Fabric Mania: A Travel Guide. This is a comprehensive listing of quilting, knitting, needlepoint, crochet, weaving, spinning, cross-stitch, and embroidery stores across the country. Shops are grouped by state and pinpointed on a state map, listed alphabetically by city, and identified by type of goods they carry. If you're on the road and need to make a supply stop, take a travel break, or just want to check out items and trends from other parts of the country, NeedleTravel has all of the pertinent information to land you in a fiber art shop!

ENTER by July 25, 2014, for a chance to win. (We will choose two winners.)
