A new kind of magazine, made for people who love quilts.

Quarterly

Subscribers receive four premium print issues per year, delivered to your mailbox in pristine, ready-to-read condition. New issues are available in January, April, July, and October of each year.

Print only

Quilting is all about what you can touch, feel, and see. For that reason, we’ve set out to make Quiltfolk the most beautiful print magazine possible, from a soft, tactile cover to a minimalist interior aesthetic and timeless typeface.

Advertisement-free

Quiltfolk is completely advertisement-free, which means we serve only one customer: our reader. Not only does this mean complete editorial freedom, it also keeps the magazine looking clean, beautiful, and uninterrupted.

Exploring a new state in every issue.

Meet Fascinating People

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.

Travel to new places

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.

Experience beautiful quilts

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. 

Join a growing community of quilters today.

“My magazines came today, and I am a happy quilter. I love the writing! When I finish an article, I feel like I’ve just had a chat with a really interesting quilter. I find myself smiling.”

– Sharon, NH

“The day I receive my Quiltfolk magazine is like a mini-vacation day for me. I do nothing until I read it cover to cover. I really do like this treasure.”

Featured items from the Quiltfolk store:

North Carolina is brimming with amazingly talented makers who love their craft and their communities—from the Appalachian Mountains, with the highest peaks east of the Mississippi River, to the coasts of Beaufort, where it’s said the pirate Blackbeard ran his ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge, aground near the present day inlet. And from the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the first public university in the United States, to the state’s historic tobacco farms with an interesting and unexpected quilt history, this state is jam-packed with talented and passionate quilters.  As is typical, the quiltfolk we met as we traveled around the state were a fantastically welcoming bunch! 

It is Fourth of July weekend, and we have hand-selected a trio of quilting books that will allow you to explore some of America’s most historic, remarkable quilts—and inspire you to try some timeless color combinations of your own.

For the next three days, you can get three festive quilting books for just $33! This offer is valid through the end of this weekend, while supplies last.

There are many great quilting books out there. And then there are those timeless books that find their way onto the shelves of most quilters. Books like Old Patchwork Quilts and The Women Who Made Them by Ruth Finley, The Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns by Barbara Brackman, and the Quilter’s Complete Guide by Marianne Fons & Liz Porter, among others. We believe that Unconventional & Unexpected is one such classic. And for the past 14 months we’ve been working with author Roderick Kiracofe to publish an expanded second edition.
