“Meet a Modern Quilter” …like you?
Wanna be in Quilty magazine?
Each issue of Quilty features a full-page profile of a quilter who is alive on the planet, making quilts today. No matter what your style, if you’re a quilt maker actively making sewing, you’re modern to us. Some of our profiled quilters are famous, some are kids, some are ladies you might know from your guild, some aren’t members of any group. Quilters are all different, and the “M.A.M.Q.” feature celebrates this.
As I was slating people for the upcoming issues, I thought, “Hey, I should offer a slot to the readers of the blog!” and that’s what I’m going to do. If you’d like to be considered for a full-page picture and a (brief) interview for an upcoming issue in 2013, answer this question in the comments thread:
When did you realize you were a quilter?
I’ll take the best answers to the editorial team and we’ll select someone to feature! Depending on where you live, you’ll need to be able to get a high-resolution photo of yourself. If that seems like an insurmountable task, this might not be the challenge for you. But if you know someone who can help you or if you happen to have a quality photograph of yourself lying around already, do it! Feature or no, this question fascinates me and I look forward to the replies.
Best of luck!
