Two MA/RI SAQA Members Featured
Art Quilting Studio Magazine
Published and distributed by Stampington & Company, LLC, Art Quilting Studio is a semiannual publication released every June and December, which caters to the art quilt. It's not surprising to find inspiring works from cover to cover by members of SAQA. It is unusual to find two SAQA members included in the same issue from one region, MA/RI, and both from the Berkshires.
Blood Moon, by Ann Brauer is on the cover and featured in their Series Showcase is Ann Brauer: Fabric Strip Quilts. The article is written by Rice Freeman-Zachery, who lives and writes in Midland, Texas. Ann's 'quilt as you go' method is discussed by her as well as her studio, her process, and how she became an art quilter.
Flip a few pages and you will find an article called The Evolution of Four Art Quilts by Cheryl Rezendes. In the article, Cheryl features four of her quilts, Whichever Way the River Flows, Night Sky, Fertility and Indian Summer. For each of the quilts Cheryl discusses her techniques and inspirations.
Art Quilting Studio offers their readers the opportunity to be published in several departments as outlined in the back of their publication. Submissions for the June 2016 issue have already passed and my quilts will be featured in this next issue. If you want to submit for the Winter 2017 issue the deadline is July 15, 2016. They prefer receiving original artwork for submissions. For an overview of their guidelines for submission visit stampington.com. To purchase a subscription you can go to Stampington & Company or call 877-782-6737. Back issues are available from Stampinton as well. I was lucky to find this last issue at my local JoAnn's for $14.99.
