Exploring American quilt culture, state by state


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.


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.

Inside each issue of Quiltfolk

Community and culture

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 archivists. Of course, we meet quilters too, wherever they are in their quilting journey, whatever their age or quilt style.

Each full-color page offers an opportunity to soak up the local flavor and to find inspiration in quilts and quilters you might otherwise never encounter.

Stories that inspire

Quilters have many ways to find inspiration for our next projects. One of those ways 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, where they come from, and what inspires their incredible creative work, we can begin to discover new places of inspiration within ourselves.

180 pages of passion

With up to 15 stories in every 180-page, advertisement-free issue, Quiltfolk is reimagining the magazine experience. We are often told that our magazine feels more like a book you receive four times per year. No matter what you call it, we hope it’s the best thing in your mailbox.

The Quiltfolk promise

Coffee-table quality

Quiltfolk is printed on thick, luxurious paper. And at 180 pages, each issue feels more like a book than a magazine. We guarantee pristine delivery of every issue by shipping in rigid packaging that minimizes damage during transit. If it doesn’t arrive in perfect condition, we’ll send a replacement at no cost.

100% money-back promise

We understand you might be skeptical. That’s why we’ve made a 100% money-back promise to all of our readers. If after reading any issue of Quiltfolk cover to cover you decide the magazine isn’t for you, let us know and we’ll refund your entire order. No questions asked. It’s that simple!

Dedicated support

If you have any questions about your account or need to update an address or payment method, you can access most of this information 24/7 in your Quiltfolk account.  For further assistance – or if you just feel like saying ‘hello’ – our dedicated customer service team is always here to help. 

current issue

Issue 07: Louisiana

What extraordinary place could be beautiful, strong, and proud enough to serve as the grand finale for the mighty Mississippi River? Louisiana, of course. Only Louisiana with her impossibly gorgeous mix of people, language, nature, and history — and quilting traditions — could fulfill such a task.

We are now shipping what could be our most thrilling issue yet, in which the Quiltfolk team journeys up the boot and down the bayou of Louisiana, exploring the quilting community one parish at a time.

Discovering our communities

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.
