Dear Folks at Generation Q Magazine,
Ok..I have now read this magazine cover to cover and really like it however I am encountering some difficulties with the web site! I worked at Checkers with Lisa Archer. She was the one who told me about the magazine and that her Bib would be in it. How to I get to the web extras to find the step by step directions and embroidery files? I can’t find the pattern for Q – Bie Brain either. I usually don’t have this much trouble..what am I doing wrong? Thank you!
In good Stitching,
Chris Dickinson

Hi Chris:

It’s not you. It’s us. We start releasing the patterns on the website/blog shortly after the on-sale date, which was August 20. We stagger them so we can give each pattern a strong push through our social media. Right now, the two patterns on the website are the Q-bie Brain and Baubles & Bangles. Megan, our web goddess, just created a new tab called “Playdates”. ALL of our posted patterns can be found there, listed under the magazine in which they appeared. By the end of next week, the remaining patterns should be up there for you. If you sign up for our blog to come to you by email (no charge and we’re not sending you anything else) and/or “like” our Facebook page, you be notified as soon as the next one is up there.

So hang in there. We are horrible teases, we know, but we really want to push LIsa’s adorable bib well.

Many quilted hugs,

Hi. Looking for templates for Winter Trees Piloow, page 60 in Nov/Dec 2013 issue. Also, maybe it’s just on my computer, but the large picture which I assume is the cover isn’t displaying.

Since I’ve been a needlewoman for many years and began in the counted thread embroidery area, I have been using Udderly Smooth Udder Cream. It is grease less and stainless, and almost odor free. It absorbs quickly, leaving no residue on my projects. Find information about this at

Do you have your magazine available at any local fabric stores? Kansas City metro area.

Hi, Sunshine, A number of online stores carry us. And in your area, Harper’s was considering stocking us on a regular basis. Let the staff at Harper’s–or whatever LQS you frequent–know you’re interested in finding us. And you can always buy single copies and subscriptions from our website. Thanks for your interest!

Bought the March-April issue yesterday, now can’t get the katydid bag pattern for the paper-pieced front. Help—

I bought the May/June issue a week ago and still can’t find the directions for the Emerald TAD quilt and Code pillow trio listed on page 39. I’m sorry, but it’s frustrating.

We’re sorry Renee! We’ll have them up there in the next two days. We hit a snag here. And I’ll email them to you personally when they are ready. -Jake

When will the “webextras” for the current issue be available? Why announce these in the magazine if they aren’t available for months later? E.g., Code pillow trio description states “Just go to issue for all three patterns.” Seems that there is a history of this problem. Thanks for any info.

Hi Barbara:

The pillows are up there now and the Emerald TAD quilt is coming in the next couple of days. Thanks for your patience!

Love your magazine! Your website, not so much. I know it is still a work in progress, but when your magazine states there is a webextra available, the page shouldn’t say ‘Coming Soon’. I was really looking forward to seeing the Emerald TAD pattern, and seeing a picture of the whole quilt so I could figure out how that kind of construction works.

Sorry CM:

I just got the September/October issue and see that there is a new blockbuilder square to be sent in by Oct 13….where is it on your web site?


ps. I really like the physical dimensions of your mag. Nice to hold in my hand.
