SPIRIT QUILTS IN SEW SOMERSET

What a thrill for my article on "Spirit Quilts" to be accepted this summer for publication in Sew Somerset's winter edition, 2013.  The time passed slowly, but finally, after much anticipation, the day came, yesterday, when I saw the magazine on the racks at my local bookstore. 
It was so exciting to be included in such a stellar edition with so many of the artists that I have known for years in the mixed media art world.  We have watched each other grow and develop through the years.  Sew Somerset is just one of the many publications that Stampington & Company of Laguna Hills, CA has to offer. They have been a source of inspiration and delight of mine for years. I was also published in another favorite of mine, Art Doll Quarterly.




I hope you get a chance to pick up a copy of this issue, the graphics are phenomenal and the photography is unparalled in quality and style.
