Last week, I downloaded what turned out to be the very last issue of Quilter's Newsletter magazine. With almost no advance notice and no fanfare at all, the October/ November 2016 issue is the last issue of what was- for many of us- the first/ only magazine available when we began our journey as quilters.
I have been reading this magazine since I started quilting in the early 1990's. It was full of great tutorials, wonderful patterns, eye candy and news from around the quilting universe. I "met" many of my favorite quilt artists in the pages. I have subscribed for over 20 years, and yet I received no notice of the magazine's end, except this page in the last issue.
Another example of the corporate mindset, I fear. Sad!
Tomorrow is the turn in day for quilts to be hung at the Museum Quilt Guild Show!!!! I haven't had a huge feeling of excitement for this show until now- and now I can't wait!! So you know what my next post will be.
I love finding news like this. Fossil fuels must become a thing of the past NOW!!! (I always hope to see that these places are in the US, though)
I am grateful for:
Kind of good news from the GI
Not having to cook much this week.
Some of my former foster babies have found homes this week!
