Quiltfolk's Book Pairing of the Week


Every Friday during the holiday season, we offer a new and exciting special. We feature a different issue of Quiltfolk and pair it with a book that perfectly complements it. You can purchase either product at a discount ― or both together at a very special price. Stay tuned each week as pairings change!

Issue of the Week

Issue 02: Iowa

$22 / $16

In Quiltfolk’s second issue, we crisscrossed the beautiful state of Iowa. We visited longarm quilters, guild members, shop owners, and quilting “sewlebrity” Marianne Fons. The famous quilter opened up about her “encore career” as a community philanthropist and aspiring novelist. Marianne Fons’s inspiring story is one of many in this hugely popular issue of Quiltfolk.

books of the Week

Birds in the Air & Margaret Goes Modern

$24.90 / $15 for two books

From award-winning author Frances O’Roark Dowell, two fiction books filled with quilts complete this week’s pairing.

Birds in the Air is a warm, funny novel about fitting in, falling out, and mending frayed relationships one stitch at a time. Marianne Fons called the book, “a truly enjoyable read about the power of quilts to connect, heal, and restore the soul.”

Margaret Goes Modern is a touching, big-hearted collection of short stories about women whose lives revolve around family, friends, and quilt-making. Meet Margaret, whose adventures in a new quilting group help her reconnect with her daughter as they grieve the slow loss of a loved one to Alzheimer’s disease.


Issue 02 + Birds in the Air + Margaret Goes Modern

Quiltfolk travels the country to collect true stories of people just like you. This week, we’re celebrating a different kind of story: a fictional one. While not true to life, these books’ tales are every bit as familiar as the stories you find in the pages of Quiltfolk Issue 02: Iowa. This week’s book pairing puts nonfiction and fiction together, perfect for your fireside holiday down-time, or holiday gift giving.
