Are you all ready for Christmas? If you still have some sewing to do check out our latest issue of Fat Quarterly full of amazing patterns!
What is Fat Quarterly? For those of you who don’t know us, Fat Quarterly is a quarterly e-mag was started around 5 years ago by Tacha Bruecher (is it really that long ago??) and other members that she met via quilting bees and online swaps.
Who are we? The FQ team consists of Tacha Bruecher, Brioni Greenberg and Lynne Goldsworthy.
What’s great about our mag?
- Our issues are jam packed full of patterns by some of the most amazing designers.
- We accept submissions from anyone who wants to be involved so we have a great mix of designers that have been around for years and new designers so we can keep our issues fresh and inspiring. We try to foster a sense of community, after all we are part of that community.
- The great about Fat Quarterly is that it can be accessed wherever you are. Login to read your copy of the e-zine using your laptop, computer or tablet and you can either view the flipbook online of download a PDF.
- We have a blog and we are on Twitter and Instagram so you can drop in, say hello and have a chat with us!
What else do we do?
As well as producing a quarterly magazine full of modern and inspiring patterns…..
we have held annual sewing retreats in London for the last 3 years These were well attended by quilters and crafters from all over the world who came to sew, meet online quilting friends in person and to, well laugh a lot!
We have also released 2 books since we began – Fat Quarterly Shape Workshop and Fat Quarterly Quilt Colour Workshop. They contain patterns produced by the FQ team and are an exciting mix of quilt and small project patterns, and as most of met via online quilting bees, block patterns.
