The Quilt Magazine Celebrates its 20th Anniversary! 

2017 is a very exciting year for Quiltmania.  We are celebrating 20 years in business (officially in September 2017)!

Either you’ve known us from the very beginning, or you just met us recently at a show/newsstands or this is the first time you’ve heard about us, we are very happy to share with you a brief history of our 20 fabulous years!

Created in 1997 in France by Carol Veillon (an avid quilter), Quiltmania had 2 purposes at that time: 1) to show the diversity & talent of quilters from all around the planet; & 2) to inspire YOU. Published every other month, Quiltmania magazine has become a reference for all passionate quilters. We offer a high quality magazine with the highest standard of prints & photos.  Featured in each issue are the best exhibitions, museums, artists, and special features like Quilts & Enchanting Homes and exquisite new projects to make in each issue. For the first couple of years, Quiltmania was available in French & Dutch only.

However that changed when our reputation spilled over the borders, and it became apparent that we had a huge demand for an English version, so in 2005 we published our first magazine in English.  

First English Version - Quiltmania issue #50, 2005

Since then, 2 new magazines have arrived on board: Simply Vintage, filled with Vintage - Folk Art inspiration and our latest magazine, Simply Moderne which brings a fresh and more contemporary view of the Quilt World. 

In the Summer of 2015, we started printing the English version of our 3 magazines: Quiltmania, Simply Vintage and Simply Moderne in Wisconsin. We publish approximately 10 books per year featuring the most remarkable artists in the Quilt World. Our publications are created by passionate people for passionate quilters world-wide!  We participate in many of the most notable quilt shows in the United States and Canada to meet our customers and to establish/build warm friendships.

Saito, Reiko Kato, Linda Koenig, Bill Volckening, and Di Ford.  We feature Quilting to Embroidery, Knitting, Sewing and more. Our goal is to gather a wide variety of exhibitors to fill and exceed your expectations! Every year our show has a new theme such as Vintage, Flower Power, Cherry Blossom…

Our theme this year is Boho Indi, and we have the great honor to present:
