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.
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.
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.
When you try a single issue of Quiltfolk, it really is risk free. Because if you’re not 100% satisfied and in love with your new magazine, we’ll refund your entire order. No questions asked.
“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.”
– Patsy, ID
Featured items from the Quiltfolk store:
Roughly 1,000 people move to Florida every day, and you can bet some of them are quilters. In Northern Florida, Valerie Goodwin and Carolyn Friedlander make quilts that combine their love of art and architecture; Kathy Metelica Cray and Teddy Pruett keep the nation’s quilt traditions alive; and from her homestead, quilt superstar Vanessa Vargas Wilson has built a global empire with tomato plants, family ties, and a passion for quilts. Watch for gators and grab a slice of Key lime pie; it’s time for some “Northern Florida” sweetness!
Introducing our first-ever hardcover photo book, featuring beautiful, unforgettable photographs taken during our first four years of travels. We have meticulously combed through an archive of over 40,000 images to bring you a truly spectacular visual experience. Case bound and oversized, this lavish coffee table book brings you Quiltfolk images like you’ve never seen them before.
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. The book is available now for pre-order and will be delivered end of November.
