November Meeting Reminder

Don't forget that this month's meeting - Nov. 15 - 7pm in Room 101!

 This month's meeting we have a very talented group of ladies sharing with us all things related to pattern, book, and magazine publishing! Ever wondered how a book idea becomes reality? Have a pattern that you wrote that you'd love to be in a magazine? Let's chat! Shelly from Figgy Patterns, Christina from The Sometimes Crafter, and our very own Michelle Freedman and Susan Beal will be sharing their experiences with publishing & quilting in this panel. Do you have a question for them? Leave your question in a comment on this post. 

We will announce and introduce next year's board, it's truly a stellar group! 

Room Update! We will be meeting in our old room (to some of you it will be new) 101! It's located in the main campus PNCA building on the first floor,  past the front desk, on the left hand side. We'll have a sign up directing everyone as well. 

Finally, don't forget to bring your fabric for the Holiday Swap. We passed out sandwich baggies at the last minute, if you weren't there or forgot yours, here's the info: 
Holiday swap!
Fill a sandwich size bag with your favorite fabric to be used in a gift made especially for you! Bring your filled bag to the November meeting with the following information attached to it. 
Your name: 
At the November meeting we will switch bags and then bring your gift to the December meeting! 


  1. When you are trying to get a book published, do you need to have original patterns of your own all ready to go, or can you move forward with just an idea?

  2. Most patterns have small computer made images of the quilt diagram; how it fits together or how to attach binding. Do the publishing houses provide this once the design is accepted or is this something you hire out before hand.
    Really looking forward to this discussion!

    1. Good question, I've wondered this myself!

  3. I was also wondering about shopping ideas or patterns around. Is it okay to approach several different publishers at once with the same idea or is it better to keep to one magazine at a time?
