An up close look at American quilt culture
Inspiration comes in many forms. One of which is through the exploration of the lives, work, history, and stories of our fellow quilters. At Quiltfolk we believe that once we understand who these quilters are, and where they come from, we can begin to discover new places of inspiration within ourselves.
Quiltfolk travels state by state with a team of writers and photojournalists to uncover spectacular stories. We meet and interview incredible members of our community: shop owners and designers; collectors and superstars; quilt scholars, curators, and everyday quilters. Every issue is a new adventure.
Each issue of Quiltfolk is 180 pages of passion, completely free of advertisements. Because our pages aren’t filled with ads, we have room to showcase more of the beautiful quilts we uncover during our travels. Whether you’re looking for traditional, modern, antique, or art quilts – Quiltfolk‘s got you covered.
Connect with your community
We travel to each featured location, meeting the people and experiencing the local quilting scene firsthand. We strive to truly get to know the incredible quilters we meet, and to understand the communities that have helped shape them. Journey with us as we discover quilting communities across the country.

Issue 13: Minnesota
Beyond being a place of casseroles and hockey, the Land of 10,000 Lakes is also home to many talented quilters living their own version of the good life. For Rose Marie Werner, this means studying her favorite topic: vintage quilt kits; for longarm quilter Karen McTavish, it’s sharing what she knows; for immigrant Suzanne Thao, the good life means passing on an important appliqué tradition. What’s your idea of the good life? Picture it in your mind — but first, let’s see how they do things in Minnesota.
