In Issue 20, we MEET Tania Denyer of Ginger Quilts, Lissa LaGreca of Lovingly Lissa and Sheila Christensen from Quilters' Lane ; we MAKE stars, geese and hearts; and we MOTIVATE you to stretch your quilting repertoire beyond quilting fabric with a feature on fabric recycling. Of course, recycling fabrics isn’t new, it’s part of quilt history all over the world. We have a fascinating article on quilting traditions in India, where reusing fabric is very common, and continue our global theme with inspiration from the Cairo Tentmakers. In terms of quilty business, we explore how to find your point of difference, how to say NO to projects you don't want to do and a wrap up of the latest International Quilt Market. We've also got 11 beautiful projects to get that sewjo raring to go, as well as articles that cover storing your scraps and Quilting Fairy Godmother requests (wouldn't it be nice if we all had one), a gallery of the #makeitmodernswap, and we say hello to the NZ Monday Modern quilt group.
