The Jerusalem Post weekend supplement, In Jerusalem, featured an article on 20 September 2017, “Quilting Puts Israel on the Map.” The article discusses the Israel Quilters Association and also quotes Elsy Menko, the chairwoman of the organization of quilters in Israel. In addition the article discusses the current exhibit, “Home,” which is showing for a few more days at the Jerusalem Theater.
A portion of the article is devoted to interviewing me as well and a photo showing my 2nd place winning quilt is included in the article. “Put up Your Feet and Take It Easy,” is a quilt showing my family members lounging in our living room together. Family is the epitome of Home for me! I find feet to be particularly expressive and this is the second quilt I have done involving feet that won a prize. The first quilt, called Sole Mates, is a quilt of my daughter and son-in-law as they stood together at a family gathering. Sole Mates is showing early November at the International Quilt Association 2017 exhibit, “Hands All Around” in Houston.
The article is also available online if you have a subscription to the Jerusalem Post daily e-paper.
Art Quilting Studio just released their Summer 2017 issue and I have a featured article in the current magazine. It’s so exciting to see my work in print and to share my techniques. My article contains photos of “Sole Mates” and “Discovery”. These two pieces have won prizes and have been exhibited internationally. “Sole Mates” will be showing in the International Quilt Festival in Houston in November 2017. “Discovery” is currently part of a SAQA exhibit in Europe.
I am really pleased with the article. It’s a high-level periodical that comes out twice a year. It is sold on news stands if anyone wants to get a copy. There are great articles and I am proud to have mine among them. More information about the issue is here:

The staff of Quilting Arts Magazine decided to include many of the quilts they received for the “Greatest Pet Peeve” Reader Challenge” in the Dec/Jan 2011 issue. So, I am happily mailing my quilt off to the magazine. I’ll keep you posted. I’m very excited at the prospect of seeing my work in print. Friskers, the main character of my cat-scape was thrilled as well. She was rewarded with some tuna. She didn’t ask why, she just ate it all…
Hadassah Magazine included an article about quilting in Israel in the current June / July 2011 edition of the magazine. They interviewed me with an emphasis on my personal connection to quilting. I hope you enjoy the article!
