Art Quilting Studio Premier Copy

I have been following Jude Hill's blog at Spiritcloth for quite a while now. She is my stitching angel. She inspires me to take a stitch each day. About two months back she announced on her blog that she was going to be published in the new Art Quilting Studio magazine by Stampington & Co, the premier issue coming out it June. One of her commenter's was Jenny Doh, the Editor-in-Chief & Director of Publishing. In her comment she said she was really looking forward to Jude Hill's work in the premier issue of the Art Quilting Studio. Knowing that I would not be able to get a copy here in Australia, I jumped on the net and pre-ordered a copy. The premier copy is supposed to come out in the US on the June 1st., but 2 days short of June my copy arrived! I have only leafed through it, but I know I will read it from cover to cover this weekend! 

Here it is my premier copy of Art Quilting Studio. Jude's article is on page 16 entitled What if. I am so delighted to also learn that Jenny Doh is also a quilter. There are some photos of her quilts on the Editor's page. The magazine featured many other talented art quilters there as well. Because I am branching into art quilts, this is a great magazine for me. I will have to subscribe to it for sure.

Other magazines I read from Stampington & Co. are SEW Somerset, Belle Armoire and Artful Blogging. The only place I have seen them in Australia is Borders bookshop in the magazines section. Up until now I have been ordering my copies directly on the internet. If you love art quilts or sewing art and of course blogging art, these are the magazines to look for.

Natima,

I haven't even heard of the magazine - I am going to have to keep an eye out for it.

Looking forward to seeing your art quilts!

This magazine is great! I flipped through it at Books a Million the other day.
