QUILT, PAPER, & SEWING GROUP
Helen Gregory is editorial director for Quilting Arts® Magazine, Cloth Paper Scissors®, and Stitch® magazines.
Having worked for years in the quilting industry, both as an editor and in marketing/product development, Helen was a fan of Quilting Arts since the early days, and she was thrilled to join the QA/CPS team in 2007.
When not working or creating, Helen loves spending time outdoors - hiking, biking, kayaking, x-c skiing, and relaxing at the beach. She moved home to her native Massachusetts after living in Colorado for many years.
I am a work in progress.
If I take one step at a time, I'm less likely to rush past the extraordinary.
I encourage others to live more creatively every day. I am a mother, artist, sister, daughter, author, singer-in-the-shower, period movie fan, lover of laughter, designer, teacher, friend, swimmer, and editor of Cloth Paper Scissors® magazine.
CLOTH PAPER SCISSORS
I have been with Cloth Paper Scissors since the premier issue and I enjoy everything that is involved in getting a magazine out the door. It is a real treat working with artists and seeing their artwork.
I have always loved working with fabrics and especially like the relaxing rhythm of hand stitching. Beading is another fun pastime.
I have lived in Massachusetts most of my life; have three wonderful, grown children; and I am a die-hard Red Sox fan.
I'm a lifelong writer and editor who has been with Cloth Paper Scissors since it's debut in 2004, giving me a way to justify my fabric and paper habit. I'm editor of Cloth Paper Scissors Studios and Online Editor for Quilting Daily.
My book, Mixed-Media Self-Portraits, Inspiration & Techniques (Interweave), was published in 2008. I dabble in an ever-widening variety of art media, primarily fabric collage and embroidery.
I live with my husband, two teenage daughters, and various pets in an antique home in central Massachusetts. I brake for vintage fabrics and linens, and the occasional roadside table and chair.
