Need some inspiration? Quilting Arts Magazine offers a variety of both practical and inspiring features. The magazine, and its sister publication, Cloth Paper Scissors, are worth a look. The organization also offers a free email subscription that offers advice on everything from painting fabric to eco-friendly packing tips for shipping your artwork. It is true. These emails do include links to the Quilting Arts online store and are — to a certain extent — shameless advertisements, but so what? I don’t mind learning about products I haven’t tried, and I like checking out options online before I invest in them.
