Newsletter

Every two months we publish our 24-page newsletter. It is packed full of interviews with some of the quilt worlds best and brightest, tips & hints, book reviews and patterns. Each newsletter contains a minimum of two patterns.  At the current cost of patterns it will only take you a couple of issues to save your membership fees in pattern purchases! We believe our newsletter gives you great value for the money and it the best way to stay informed on what’s happening in the world of quilting and appliqué.  Become a member and start receiving your newsletters today!

As a special benefit to our members we are now posting the newsletter and patterns in full color on our website. To access the on-line newsletter you must be a member in good standing of TAS. The newsletter can be found on the TAS website in the “Members Only” area. Our members now have the option of receiving their newsletter in hard copy format via the USPS or they can view and download the color electronic version on-line. Many of our members still opt to receive their newsletter in the mail but they love viewing the “color” version on-line. All the quilts featured are just too pretty not to see them in color. 

In our newsletter you will always find interviews with new rising stars of appliqué as well as well-established stitchers and teachers.  These generous quilt artists are always willing to share their knowledge and their love of appliqué with our members through their newsletter. 

Our members are always encouraged to contribute to our newsletter we love sharing their photos and stories.

We are so lucky to have talented pattern designers included in our membership ranks. These members donate their patterns to be used in the newsletter. Each designer is profiled in the newsletter along with her pattern when the pattern is published. We enjoy getting to know these talented TAS members and a little bit of the history behind their pattern designs. 

TAS also has Chapters throughout the US and Canada and around the world. Our “Chapter News” area allows all our members to enjoy photos and articles on the activities of our Chapters. 

Reviews are one of our most popular features. Here you will find the “Let’s Go Shopping” column which features tools, fabric and other items of interest for the appliqué. There are also at least 4 or 5 new books reviewed per issue. 

We invite you to take a sneak peek at our newsletter!
