Fall Quilt Market 2012: Modern Quilt Studio

Weeks Ringle tag-teamed with her husband Bill Kerr this Market. Bill talked about the modern quilting movement to a standing-room-only crowd at schoolhouse (yeah!), then Weeks took the bulk of the booth-staffing through Market and into Festival. The recently rechristened Modern Quilt Studio booth showcased their distinct and cerebral take on modern quilting, as well [...]

Ottobre on Etsy

Ottobre is a very highly regarded magazine of children’s clothing patterns. The Finnish company also publishes women’s clothing issues a couple times a year.

Of course I still love my paper media, but we have NO room in our house anymore for magazine archives and our book saturation point was reached [...]
