Generation Q is expanding their digital presence and creating a 96-page, full-color quarterly. Hot diggity dog! We’re excited over her at Clothworks and will keep you posted on the progress. Here is some more information about the launch and check out the online mag. It is full of great project ideas, patterns and thoughtful discussions.
From the horse’s mouth:
“The time is now! We’re furiously working on the first print issue of Generation Q, which will be available in June 2012. GenQ will print quarterly, offering up 96 pages of features, news, ideas, and advertising geared to whet the stitchy appetites of modern and contemporary sewists.”
They are funding their launch with Kickstarter and there are still some swank rewards for pledgers, so check that out, too.
