Quilters Companion magazine

Melody, Christine and Julia - you were all correct in your comments on my blog in November last year when I said the proposed article about the PNG Collective hadn't been published in Quilters Companion yet.    You said that it can take a few months after an interview, for the item to be published.   In today's mail I received a complimentary copy of Quilters Companion Issue No.65 - with a full page article on me with the PNG quilts on Page 107.  Yaaay!  Yaso will be delighted when she sees it, as I was.  I've already had one email from a lady in Western Australia who read the article and contacted me to say she would like to make a quilt for us.

I emailed Yaso a few days ago to ask if she had distributed any quilts yet, but I haven't had a reply, so the chances are she is in some remote area of PNG and unable to send or receive emails.  As soon as I hear anything from her, I will post an update here.
Next day...
I received a reply today from Yaso; she arrived home a few days ago, exhausted and with a sick tummy.  But she tells me that the quilts were well received, and she got some good photos, so when she is feeling better she will send them to me.

I bought the 'Quilter's Companion' so I could read your article. Love the photo and the article. Well deserved recognition for all your work. Sylvia
