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.”

– Patsy, ID

Featured items from the Quiltfolk store:

Explore the sweeping landscapes in “The Land of Plenty”: plenty of history, plenty of views, and plenty of remarkable quilts and quiltmakers. In our next issue, you will meet the founder and force behind the state’s Documentation Project (an undertaking that has been years in the making), learn about the history of the Star quilt (how it ties into Native culture as well as how talented makers are keeping their traditions alive), and discover the friendliest of folks—all of whom are excited to share their stories.

Our heirloom quilt ladder is truly a piece of furniture you can use to display your quilts for years, and even generations, to come. And like the quilts you choose to put on it, each ladder is made with tremendous care and attention to detail. Learn about each of those intricate details by clicking below.

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.
