The Quilt Life magazine made its debut in April 2010; its final edition will be the October 2014 issue, available in mid-August. That's 28 issues total. From the beginning, the magazine was owned by the American Quilter's Society (AQS). At the time AQS approached us, Ricky and Alex were surveying the quilt-publication scene and were coming to realize that there were plenty of quilt magazines already focused on patterns and techniques, so they saw no need to create another. Instead, The Quilt Life has always been about the stories of the quilts, and of the quiltmakers "living the quilt life."
Everyone involved with The Quilt Life magazine is sad to see it go, but the much-publicized evolutuion from print to online media is partially responsible. If you have an active subscription, you'll soon be hearing directly from AQS as to how your outstanding subscription will be handled.
On a personal note, we want to thank Meredith Schroeder and the American Quilter's Society for giving us a blank canvas upon which to create and share.
This brings us to the subject of TheQuiltShow.com. We want to be VERY clear that the magazine and the website are two totally different companies.
The Quilt Show (TQS) is alive and well, and we look forward to continuing the awesome journey of delivering first-rate video to your computer screen and to connecting quilters worldwide!
