American Quilter

The official publication of American Quilter’s Society remains the most respected and distinctive magazine serving the lives and craft of quilters. Every issue comes packed with techniques, tips and lifestyle features to inspire quilter’s love of life.

In every issue, readers find amazing photos of award-winning quilts as well as technique articles and patterns to bring amazing quilting to your home. Our ongoing commitment to quality extends beyond the words and stories we feature through the exceptional quality of the magazine pages themselves. You won’t find a magazine that’s still as well made as American Quilter.

Our goal is to remain current and even ahead of trends in quilting, making sure you have the techniques and patterns to succeed and enjoy. Plus, you’ll always find:

  • Exclusive patterns
  • Lifestyle features on famous and Soon-to-be famous quilters
  • The latest techniques
  • Book Reviews
  • Quilt designs

At only $25.00 per year, you’ll receive hundreds of dollars of valuable knowledge. Each issue alone costs $5.99, but members of American Quilter’s Society get this $35.94 value as a part of their membership – absolutely FREE.
