QUILTMANIA magazine was created in France in 1997 by Carol Veillon who is an addict quilter.
From the beginning, the purpose of this publication was to show the diversity and the talent of quilters from all over the planet and to inspire you. As a reference for all passionate quilters, we offer a high quality magazine with the highest standards of print and photos, the best of exhibitions, museums and artists, special features like Quilts & Enchanting Homes and exquisite quilt projects to make. Our reputation overflowed the borders and it appeared that we had a huge request for the English version so we decided to also publish the magazine in English in 2005. Since then 2 new magazines have arrived on board: Simply Vintage, full of Vintage - Folk Art inspiration and the new one, and Simply Moderne which brings a fresh and more contemporary review of the Quilt World. From summer 2015 we are printing the English versions of our 3 magazines Quiltmania, Simply Vintage and Simply Moderne in Wisconsin... We also publish about 10 books per year featuring the most remarkable artists of the Quilt World. Quiltmania publications are made by passionate people for passionate quilters all over the world! We will also have a stand at the most important quilt shows all over the United States and Canada to meet our customers more often and to keep building our warm friendship.
Quiltmania magazine is sold all over the world in 3 languages, and available in booths individually or by subscription for 1 or 2 years.
Vintage and country styles have a great success and in 2011, Quiltmania Editions thought of launching a magazine 100% devoted to these styles, with quilt projects and other techniques such as rug hooking, punch needle, embroidery and other DIY works. You will find more than 20 projects in each issue. This quarterly magazine will take you for a walk around antique stores, shops and vintage events all around the United States. Simply Vintage is available in French and in English, in booths or by subscription for 1 or 2 years.
The Modern Quilts made a brilliant entrance in the world of quilts with a new start, a range of fresh fabrics, also refined and creative designs which seduced a new generation, before charming more quilters and artists.
We decided to launch Simply Moderne in Summer 2015. It is a quarterly magazine available in French and in English, in which you will find all the news, artists, exhibitions, and more than 12 projects made by Modern Quilts artists from all over the world. Simply Moderne is available in booths or by subscription for 1 or 2 years.
