Quilt Now Magazine
There's a new kid on the block in the little world of modern quilting. Quilt Now has arrived from the UK and we're excited to bring it to you!
Many of you know Katy Jones. We love Katy Jones. Maybe you haven't noticed just how much we love Katy Jones (it's a lot). As editor in chief, this magazine is truly her baby and as lovely as she is. If you're a fan of hers, read her blog, follow her Instagram or Twitter, you probably like many of the same things she does. So basically, if you like what she likes, you'll love the magazine.
Everything published in Quilt Now is commissioned specifically for the magazine and is approved by Katy's artful eye. Full of quilts, bags, and other handmade goodies, she understands what modern quilters are really doing because she is a modern quilter! Each issue will feature a theme or common color palette, and projects from one month to the next will be completely fresh and different from the previous issue.
The first issue is sorbet themed. You'll notice beautiful, creamy pastels as well as punchy bright hues in the fabrics used to make tons of gorgeous projects. You'll be itching to start-- because who doesn't need more projects to work on?
PCF Bundle
If you love the color palette in this first issue, you might want to check out the coordinating blogger bundle she put together just for us! Feel free to pick one up here.
Quilt Now also comes with bonus pattern pieces, printed on separate paper. So no more sacrificing pages or photo copying to get your pattern. Katy handled it all for you. She even threw in a mini pin cushion project with supplies included. She's really too kind.
You can subscribe to Quilt Now through us and as of now, we are the only US distributor for the magazine. Don't worry, we're happy to ship internationally as well, just like we do with our fabric and other goodies. If you're not ready to commit and sign up for a subscription, we now have individual issues listed for sale. 
While we don't know what next month has in store for us, Katy's posted some previews for a gorgeous quilt pattern shown two ways (and one of them is all Cotton + Steel).  If you haven't subscribed yet, make sure you're on board before the August issue is here in a few weeks!

The multitalented modern quilter Katy Jones of I'm a Ginger Monkey and Quilt Monkey is the editor and curator of a new magazine, called Quilt Now:

Quilt Now magazine found at Pink Castle Fabrics!

Produced by quilters for quilters, every issue of Quilt Now will showcase new and inspiring quilting projects, from full-size bed quilts to lap quilts, cushions, bags and accessories, all using the latest fabrics. Each issue is beautifully photographed and curated with fresh and modern color palettes. 

In addition to her blog and her quilting television show, Katy Jones is one of the founders of the online quilting magazine Fat Quarterly, the author of two books, and a two time Camp Stitchalot counselor! We are very excited to see her newest quilting venture. The first issue will be on newsstands in the UK in July, but if you want it, and you live somewhere that's not the UK, Pink Castle Fabrics is here to help you out!

We've set up a monthly club for Quilt Now magazine, similar to our monthly fabric clubs (like stash stack club or kawaii fabric club), where, rather than getting a monthly delivery of fabric, you will receive your monthly issue of Quilt Now magazine. You can either pay per issue - $11.99 plus shipping, or buy a 6 or 12 month subscription and receive free shipping within the USA (and reduced shipping elsewhere)!

Quilt Now magazine found at Pink Castle Fabrics!Katy sums up Quilt Now this way:

"Each issue will follow a loose theme set by colour, reflecting what is current in both fabric and quilting as well as the trends from fashion and lifestyle stores. All of the projects and imagery will tie together with the particular theme of the issue, making it a visually beautiful and inspirational magazine. Issue one follows the theme of sorbet - soft pastels and fresh fruity flavours, think of lemon sherbet and strawberry ice cream sundaes in the sunshine, in the park. Issue two (out at the end of August) has a European Summer theme - vacations in the Greek Islands and beaches of the South of France, nautical fashion and cocktails by the pool.

"Along with the magazine, there will be high quality free gifts every month -  including cut and sew kits, notions and tools - and there may be the occasional photo or 2 of cats on quilts. Just because."

Hopefully you will join us in the Quilt Now magazine subscription club!
