Hello wonderful quilters.  I have a favor to ask.  I'm taking a class this semester called Magazine Culture and for my final paper I want to compare trends in quilting magazines to trends in fashion magazines.  The problem is, it's kind of hard to find archives of quilting magazines.  So I was wondering if anyone has any old quilting magainzes they'd be willing to scan for me, or let me borrow (I'd send them back!).  The earliest I'd want is 2010.  Anything older would be great.  It would be greatly appreciated, and I'll make sure to thank you in the paper as well.   Smiley

(Or if anyone could even just point me in the direction of a good online archive that'd be appreciated too.  So far I've only found ones that show a page or 2 and then want you to order the magazine, which would get a bit expensive for a paper).

is there a local quilting/sewing guild where you live?
they might have an archive you could access.

I've got copies of Quilter's Newsletter dating back to the 1970s.  How many and what distribution would you like. ;-)

I've also got a few other older magazines if you're interested.

ooo.  I think maybe just a couple from the '70s and a couple from the '80s would be good.  Those seem like they could be fun times to look at.   Cheesy
Can you scan them, or should I message you my address?
Thank you thank you!
