All That Sparkles / Sparkle Like You Mean It
Are you looking to add a bit of sparkle to your reading list over the holiday break? Well, then I’ve got just the thing for you! The latest issue of Textile Fibre Forum magazine hit news stands recently, and you’ll find my regular column, All That Sparkles on the back page. In this issue I discuss the non-importance of being modern with your quilting and/or fibre practice.
Remember to make what you love, and forego any nonsense about needing to be “modern” in order to be a respected art practitioner. I can’t believe I even have to keep talking about it, but modern does not beautiful make. Oh, and make sure you check out the captioned image, Little Bear / Ursa Minor which was made by my good friend, Anne Sullivan of Play-Crafts. She is a constant inspiration to me, so I was honoured that she let me reference her quilt in my article.
Secondly, and excitedly, I’ve been added to the list of amazing contributing writers for Australian digital quilt magazine, Make Modern. I’ve now got my own regular column there as well! (World, look out, Molli’s coming for ya!) Each issue, you’ll find me addressing the hottest of hot pants topics in my feature, Sparkle Like You Mean It. I’m going to be giving sage quilting advice by directly answering the questions you send to me. But hey, if you need some advice that ventures outside of quilting, bring it! I’m never one to shy away from serving up a kettle of truth tea, so I’ll give it to you steaming! In this issue, it’s all about the fabric, baby! There’s already been a ton of follow up questions, but please send the ones burning you in places they shouldn’t directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I promise to soothe some of the over flow right here on the blog!
