Reader Letters and Photos
Have You Made A Quiltmaker Quilt?
We love to see quilts made from our patterns! Send us your photo and we’ll consider it for publication in Sew to Speak or Readers Spotlight. Please send clear, focused photos with adequate lighting. Include a photo of the entire quilt and a close-up of any interesting details. Please note: these photos cannot be returned.
Attach a sticky note to the back of each photo giving your name, address, phone and email.
Please include the name of the pattern, the size of the quilt, a short note about why you made the quilt, any awards received and any other details our readers might enjoy.
Send photos and letters to Quiltmaker, 741 Corporate Circle, Suite A, Golden, CO 80401.
