Issue 05 Eastern Mass.
Mark Twain once wrote, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes.” At Quiltfolk we can now echo that advice, since we arrived in Massachusetts on the heels of a hurricane, just in time for the impending tropical storm that followed. Gratefully, we were able to weather the (literal) storms in pursuit of some of the most fascinating quilters, designers, shops, and guilds that the eastern half of the state has to offer.
Issue 04: Tennessee
Tennessee is all those things you see in the movies. It’s fireflies and sweet tea. It’s old-Hollywood gone country. It’s driving down the country roads in the bed of a beat-up pickup truck. Tennessee is amber waves of grain, and it is good ol’ southern charm.
Tennessee is everything the movies tell you it’s supposed to be, and it’s everything you want it to be. Join us as we explore the quilting community full of places, faces, and quilts that are sure to draw you into this historic state.
Issue 03: Hawaii
The Quiltfolk team is fresh off an exciting trip to Hawaii’s Big Island, where we gathered some incredible stories. Issue 03 was an opportunity to shake things up a bit, and to explore a quilting community with a very different look and feel from the first two issues. Like everywhere we travel, we came home appreciating both the uniqueness Hawaii had to offer, as well as the commonalities it shared with the other quilting communities we’ve explored.
Issue 02: Iowa
For Issue 02 we traveled to Eastern Iowa. Braving the sub-zero wind chills, we explored an integral piece of America’s quilting culture. Iowa has more quilt shops per capita than any place on earth, and a reputation for being rich with quilting history. Even with high expectations, the trip did not disappoint. The people were friendly, the places were picturesque, and the quilts were bold and incredibly beautiful.
Discovering our communities
We travel to each featured location, meeting the people, and experiencing the local quilting scene first-hand. We strive to truly get to know the incredible quilters we meet, and understand the communities that have helped shape them. Journey with us as we discover quilting communities across the country.
Quiltfolk is like taking a trip without going anywhere. I absolutely love it!
