meg-cox

Here is her message. For more information, e-mail her at meg@megcox.com. My first book, “The Heart of a Family: Searching America for New Traditions That Fulfill Us,” was published in 1998 by Random House. It sold 15,000 copies in hardcover, is out of print, and never had a paperback edition. I’m planning to rectify that […]

Where Everybody Knows Your Name…

Pannay Guigley and her girls

by: Pannay Guigley Did you ever notice, the attitudes around you are infectious? If you find a group of friends who are in love with what they do, that radiates and enraptures you, and soon it is your new love. That is how I feel about the Quilt Shop I found when we moved from […]

Will Work for Fabric – Sharon Zurbrigg

sharon-zurbrigg

Just like any other quilter, it started someplace, somewhere and somehow. I started sewing when I was in high school and my first “real job” was working in a fabric store. As time went on, I worked for a drapery company and then did tailoring for a local men’s wear shop. After a few years, […]

Mary Ellen von Holt of Little Quilts

rylen-rug

I’m thrilled to be featured as a guest blogger! Quilting has always been such a relaxing past time for me. In 1976 I was working on a needle point picture of Mickey Mouse commemorating the 500 year anniversary of the bicentennial. I was flipping through Family Circle magazine and came across a picture of a […]

Mary Stori

Stori-Photo#10

For every quilter, there’s a story to tell about how they began quilting, here’s mine… My name is Mary Stori.

Why quilt?

basted-dwr

By: Grace Thorne I’m sure we’ve all seen photos of beautiful quilts and wallhangings that earn oft-coveted blue ribbons. I raise my needle to the innovative and industrious makers for their discipline, vision and expertise and for the serious eye candy and inspiration they provide for the “rest” of us, meaning the everyday, ordinary quilter. […]
