I have been watching and waiting for someone else to break the news, but since its on the newstands tomorrow, I decided I can go ahead and show it now. I am pleased to be in such good company. Danita , who graces the cover with her art, and then has a fine article. Ruth Rae, who gives amazing instructions for fabric treatment. I just purchased a cuff kit from her etsy that comes with dvd for instructions---could I have figured it out myself? Probably, but the dvd pulled me in because I could listen to Ruth's voice and see her actually work---since I can't visit her classes in person, that interested me very much.
Then there is Jude Hill, one of my favoritists ever, doing "hearts" which she says she never really liked before, but decided to become friends with. She faces her disdain of the "common" heart with a sampler and explainations of the hearts which is a very good read besides the fact that the work is exquisite.
A new artist to me, Evie Zaccardelli, and wonderful pastel work---gives me the impression that her scissors is looking for another home---lots of tearing the cloth.....
There is another artist that I did not know, Mar Gorman, who teaches how to "create" fabric making collages, which of course, interests me very much.
This is just a sampling of what the new publication brings you. I agree that I think twice about purchasing a $14.95 magazine, but this is a keeper and full of information. I am excited to be among those who have presented such brilliant and astounding work to the quilt arena. It pushes me to keep going and keep exploring.
You saw some of this in process, but when I realized I was going to submit it, I stopped showing it. I added a lot of detail in embroidery. My scanner ran out of ink this morning, and it won't let me scan when it needs ink. Dumb scanner.
