Quilting Resources

WEBSITE LINKS:

Equilter.com

https://equilter.com

My favorite online source for quilting fabrics (all kinds of design) and quilting supplies. As an added bonus, they donate 2% of your order to charity, without cost to you.


Quilts and Treasures Quilt Store

56-58 Shaker Road, East Longmeadow, MA. http://www.quiltsandtreasuresinc.com

My favorite actual store for shopping for quilt fabric and supplies. It’s a one-and-a-half hour drive from my house, but worth it several times a year. You can order fabric online, but there is much more in the actual store.


Dharma Trading Co.

https://dharmatrading.com

This is a great source for all types of crafting supplies. It does have some fabrics, mostly different types of silks.


Stef Francis

http://www.stef-francis.co.uk

This site is physically located in England, and there is an exchange rate to take into account when ordering from them. But I have found no other place in the United States with their variety of yarns, ribbons and fibers, embellishments and kits. They also sell a limited amount of fabric.


QUILT ART ORGANIZATION:

Studio Art Quilt Association – https://www.saqa.com

This is the only quilt organization I belong to at this time. It is an organization with international membership, and offers a lot of services for its members. I especially like their Calls for Entries section, which includes information about SAQA and outside shows and contests.


FAVORITE QUILT ARTISTS:

Rayna Gillman

http://www.studio78.net

Rayna describes herself as an artist, author and teacher, and she excels at all three. I’ve been to one of her workshops and it was totally non-stress, with great results.


Maggie Grey

https://www.d4daisy.com

Maggie has written several books filled with inspiration and techniques. Now she has joined with other artists to produce WOWbooks – five so far – which describe and explain state-of-the-art techniques.


Sandra Meech

http://www.sandrameech.com

Sandra’s work has inspired me for years, and any or all of her books are wonderful to explore.


I recently received an email from a Senior Girl Scout leader. She told me her scouts were meeting virtually and working on a textile badge. They had come across my website and were using this Quilting Resources page as a source of information. They also told me about another website they had found useful. I checked it out and it did have a lot of information covering a wide range of quilting experiences, and they thought you might like to have access to it also. I am grateful to Shana Mendelson and her Scouts for making me aware of this site:
