Saturday Morning Quilt Break: A New Home

Sewing Machine

Well hello there! It’s been a few weeks since our last Saturday morning quilt break. You may have noticed we’ve made a few changes around here, namely the debut of our brand new The Quilting Company website.

These changes are more than just cosmetic. They represent a real commitment to bringing deep, meaningful content to you in a way that our previous online platforms simply couldn’t. For instance, if you’re reading this on a smartphone or tablet, you’ve probably already realized that this website is mobile-friendly, which alone is a huge improvement over our previous websites.

This website also brings together our online stores, free web content, pattern galleries, videos and more in one place, making it easier for all of us to find what we’re looking for.

After Quilters Newsletter’s final issue in October/November 2016, we said that we were looking forward to continue bringing you similar articles and stories online in 2017, and heard from many of you who said you were eagerly awaiting the return of the quilt lifestyle content for which Quilters Newsletter was known. We now have a plan for that expanded feature content, which you’ll find in our flagship print magazines of Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting, McCall’s Quilting, Quiltmaker, Quilty and Easy Quilts, and on this website.

I for one am pretty excited by the possibilities in store. We quilters love stories as much as we love fabric, and I’m thrilled to be part of a team that will bring you new stories and help you tell your own.

So I apologize that I can’t sit for a long visit this week. Just as when you move house you have to spend some time just unpacking and figuring out where to put everything, I’m still working on new systems and responsibilities as we gear up for 2018 and beyond. It’s challenging, I won’t lie, but I can already tell I’m going to love this new space and all of its potential for entertaining my quilting friends.

Until next week, I wish you Happy Quilting!
Mary Kate
