New craft magazine from Fons & Porter


We thought you might be interested in hearing about our new craft magazine. In the middle of putting together our great quilt magazines, we also pulled together our premier issue of a new craft magazine called, make•ability. It is filled with a few quick, last-minute quilting gifts such as holiday placemats, baby quilts, and quilted advent calendars.

Along with quilting and sewing projects there are Easy Projects you can do with your kids; Pet Projects for that special four-legged friend; Craft Projects that include ornaments, jewelry, cards, and wooden puzzles; Recycled Projects from old wool sweaters; and Needle Art Projects for beginning knitting, cross-stitch, and needlepoint.

So if you're looking for some great gifts to make for the holidays, check out make•ability, on newsstands now. Take a look at the adorable Old English Sheepdog on page 14—his name is Jackson and he's one of my two dogs!

Happy holiday quilting!

My daughter brought this magazine to me with "Mom, can you make the tree skirt in this book?"    She sews herself but rarely has the time with her busy life to commit to such a project - I don't think she appliques yet.  So, off to the fabric store we went (my favorite pasttime when not quilting - tee hee).  I have it all sewn together but now need to assemble front, back and batting then quilt it.  I enlarged it some because she wanted it bigger than 36".  She picked out from my stash of Christmas material all the pieces for the angel. At the fabric store we chose the background material and backing material.  I am proud of how it turned out!  I have done some applique, but not this much on any one piece.  Thanks Fons & Porter for making the process so easy!  I love your magazines and look forward to getting this new one on a regular basis.
