Have you seen Simply Moderne? It is a new quilting magazine by Quiltmania aimed at modern quilters. I first came across this french publication when on holidays in the states last October and gasped at the price of it. At 17.99 dollars US, 11.99 sterling I thought it was pricey for a quilt mag but I liked the look of it and thought I'd check out a subscription online. A years subscription including delivery to Ireland is currently 42 Euro. So I subscribed!

Keep it in mind when you are next looking to treat yourself! If anyone already has a subscription we'd love to hear about it!
Last November the Royal Society of Needlework in UK had a stand at the Knitting and Stitching show in the RDS and were gauging interest in classes in Ireland. They have announced their first set of classes in Dublin coming up. For anyone who wants to stretch their needlework skills the classes may be of interest. The one that caught my eye was Silk shading but its booked out already - maybe next time!
There are other classes on goldwork and whitework too and could be worth a look! Just two of the things that caught my eye to share this month! What about you guys? Any cool things we should be checking out?
