Carolyn Friedlander, featured in Issue 19: Northern Florida, is an established pattern and fabric designer and award-winning quilter, specializing in modern fabric designs and quiltmaking with intention. Carolyn has a loyal following, and many readers shared their excitement about her article in our latest issue. But the excitement doesn’t have to end there …
With Carolyn’s support, we have paired her book Savor Each Stitch: Studio Quilting with Mindful Design with a custom, hardcover notebook that features her 2020 quilt Ray! These small-batch notebooks are made in America by Denik, a company with a terrific story.
“Your drawing would look awesome on a notebook.” Even though he had been told that he shouldn’t pursue art as a career, it only took encouragement from one person for Denik Founder, Tyler, to build a brand around creative, cause-based notebooks. Tyler, and his cofounder, Jake, gathered a team of artists and started designing and binding notebooks. And with each item sold, a portion of the proceeds was set aside to fund the building of a school in Mali, Africa. His vision has blossomed from a grassroots street team of book-slingers to a community of artists and creative professionals. The mission of “funding education projects through art and creativity” has spread to artists, customers, corporations, and partners worldwide. The Denik Movement has successfully funded five schools, demonstrating that art can change the world.
This exclusive, hardcover notebook is lined with dot grid pages that lay completely flat for easy sketching. And it gets better: Denik is based in Utah, so all notebooks are made in the USA!
