Make Modern - AKA Why it's been so quiet around here....

I'd love to tell you that this blog has been a bit quiet of late because I've been busily finishing quilt after quilt, but nobody would believe that anyway.

The real reason is even more exciting than that.

I've been working double shifts with a couple of my quilting besties, Kristy and Lara on a VERY EXCITING NEW business venture (yes, I'm shouting).

I am so thrilled to introduce my new baby, Make Modern, a brand new digital quilting magazine for modern quilters.  We're going to be publishing every two months, and we're accepting submissions from quilters all over the world.

Our big focus is on community, because that's what we believe the modern quilting world is all about. We want to hear from our readers, we want to showcase lots of amazing quilters and bloggers and makers and designers... not just the big names. We want to focus on the fun, guilt free aspect of quilting, because try as we might we can't take ourselves too seriously.

Each issue will be a mixture of projects, meeting amazing quilters and learning new skills, because you're never too old or experienced to grow and learn.

It's going to be busy, maybe a little crazy, there's so much to do, but it's so freaking awesome and I am so excited it's actually happening! After almost 20 years in and out of magazine publishing, including many years in the craft niche, I am really excited to be doing something that I am instrumental in putting together.

Right now, you can visit our website and you can also like us on Facebook  too.
Come and check us out, and Make Modern!
