Spring 2010 Newsletter

Welcome to the first issue of our exciting new e-zine, Friends@Festival! And I want you to know that the idea for this new venture came from, well, you!

One of the things I most enjoy getting to do during any of the three editions of International Quilt Festival is to stop on the show floor and chat with attendees. And over the past few years, I’ve heard a lot of great stories about quilters who stay in contact over the internet and then, finally get to meet face-to-face at our shows.

That got me to thinking about

how much closer the worldwide community of quilters has been able to get with all of these advances in technology. We decided to create an electronic magazine that would celebrate not only the great

friendships and bonds forged today among quilters worldwide, but feature fun, fast-paced articles, guest columns, quirky facts, and information that you won’t find anywhere else—all at the click of a mouse!

We also wanted to design it in a way that reflects the editorial content—with a lot of zippy colors and graphics that aren’t locked-in to a set format or style. We want the freedom to be, well, free!

I hope you enjoy this first issue,

as well as the upcoming quarterly editions. If you have any ideas for a story or feature or just want to comment, zing an e-mail to us at friendsatfestival@quilts.com.

We want to make Friends@Festival reflect what you, our quilting friends, want to see!
