Dear Quilters,

Sometimes things just make sense. Quilters Newsletter Magazine was the first major magazine for quilters and the one we have all subscribed to forever. For decades now it has been the source for keeping up-to-date on all things quilting. And now, QNM (as we know it) is bringing newsiness to the airwaves, right here on!

Here’s the official description for Quilters Newsletter TV:

Must see, thought-provoking, inspiring and all new "The Quilter's Community" brought to you by editors of Quilters Newsletter magazine. Meet accomplished quilters, view amazing quilts, learn quilting techniques, visit quilt shows and shops, hear quilters' stories, see the best quilting products and more. And it's FREE - the world of quilting brought directly to you through this exciting and engaging online TV. Plus a special series with Patrick Lose!

See what I mean, doesn’t a marriage of the newsletter magazine for quilters and a weekly TV show simply make sense?!

Happy quilting,
