January/February 2018

Volume XXX, Number 4

Our winter issue is chock full of articles and projects to keep you busy during these cold winter days. We start off with a bang, as Susan Cunningham describes her efforts to tame her "oodles of noodles." We show you a gallery of her lovely creations, all inspired by her boxes and bins of leftover wool bits. Next, for a bit of history, we celebrate Women's Suffrage. Next year, 2020, is one hundred years after women in the US got the vote. Norma Press is gets us in the mood with her collection of rugs and mats on this theme. And we welcome our readers who like rug punching and needle punching – we have an article and pattern for each of you, whether you punch with embroidery floss or with rug yarn. We even have a project for your next snowy day—dyeing with snow! So join us as we make our drab winter days a little more colorful. Be sure to check out our vibrant January/February 2019 issue!
