My cool friend, Jake Finch of Generation Q Magazine, called and asked me to be a part of her book about swaps. To be honest, I had never been part of a swap (that’s when a sewing guild hosts an event for people to exchange sewn gifts). So I just made what I was into in that moment: EYE PILLOWS! I embroidered “i am enough” right onto one and voila! Instant awesomeness–a calming and grounding lavender eye pillow that also reminds us of the truth: that we are enough just as we are.

Anyway, leave a comment by August 23rd about your double left-ear-piercing phase (or some other phase) or your favorite pincushion and I’ll draw two lucky winners to receive the new GenerationQ Magazine!
I’m sure you’ve already heard and maybe even seen the adorablest, coolest magazine for sewinistas—GenerationQ? Man, is it fun to read…
GenerationQ founders, Jake Finch, Melissa Maher, and Megan Dougherty, have backgrounds in quilting journalism. They recently decided there was a spot in the market for a publication focusing on the community of the modern quilting/sewing movement and GenQ was born as an online magazine. (They even featured me right here.)
Have you seen the new and inspiring online magazine, Generation Q? I met Jake Finch, one of the editors and founders, when I was at the Long Beach Festival. Jake is an ad hoc historian/archeologist of the very young modern quilting movement. She is a fountain of knowledge and has been participating for several decades as a sewist, writer and editor for several trade publications.
