December marks the month when we take time to review our personal and professional goals before we set new intentions for the year to come.
With this in mind, Mel Beach’s article “Make and Meet Your Artistic Goals” is a great place to start. She has specific suggestions for making those goals realistic. Similarly, Patricia Kennedy-Zafred shares her insight about the ins and outs of entering your artwork in shows. Her tips are practical and apply to all quilt exhibitions.
You’ll find inspiration to guide your goal setting on every page of this issue. From articles about hand stitching, creating a three-dimensional village, learning how to paint and stencil on fabric, and looking to other cultures for patterns and imagery.
