Cloth Paper Scissors

A while back I fell in love with the most amazing magazine called CLOTH PAPER SCISSORS. If you have not picked this up, you need to. It's loaded with mixed media collage, fabulous and oh so talented artists from all around the world. This is the kind of forum which allows us to be completely creative. A sister magazine to the ever amazing QUILTING ARTS magazine, which is also truly, a work of genius. So when I displayed my fabrics at the last International Quilt Market in Houston, this sweet lady walks up to me and introduces herself as the Editor of, you guessed it... both of these incredible magazines! Well, I almost fainted right on the spot and probably spoke a million miles a minute in complete and utter star-struck agony! Her name is Patricia Bolton and she's a lovely person, who must have a crazy schedule and very busy life... But you'd never know it. As generous as she can be and she finds the time to create.... Here is a shot of the booth at market in October 2007.

So, a few weeks later, Patrica known as Pokey, calls me and asks me if I'd like to submit a project for the March/April 08 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors.... Aghast... I said "Oh yes please...." So pick up the issue and delve into the pages. I know you're going to love it... and a quick peak at the project.... Perfectly lovely necklaces for your daughter, cousin, mom or grandmama... or maybe the boy who loves to dress up! Anyway, they're called SHERBERT GIRL NECKLACES... and they're made with all sorts of things in your stash of fabrics, papers, beads, buttons and ribbons.... just wait, you're gonna love 'em. And if you're not a subscriber already, you're going to want to get this publication from now on!
Best, TG
