MELISSA THOMPSON MAHER, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
Living and working in Albuquerque, New Mexico for many years, I’m a former
Kansas-native who grew up loving the cloth. It’s true like many of you I’m a little
newer to quilting; I’ve only made them for about 2 years. But I’ve been attached to a sewing machine for many more years than I care to count. I’ve always admired intricately pieced quilts, but it wasn’t until I saw some fresh, oh-so-yummy modern quilt designs that my fingers started to itch and the voices sang out “Yesss! Make those quilts!” Add in the fun and artful modern fabrics that have flooded the market,and my sewing machine now has a new purpose in life.
I have four grown kids (two still in college—feel sorry for me!), and couple of dogs and a dear hubby who all indulge my fabric fantasies. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d love to hear from you!
