Mr. B's Preview Pack Club gives you a sneak peak of some of the wonderful fabrics that are coming your way.
And that’s not all! See the newest fabrics before they arrive at your shops and see the great finished projects
from our readers. The Fat Quarterly also features interesting websites, book reviews, and super easy and cute
projects. Past issues of The Fat Quarterly have included themes, contests, stories and recipes. You just never
know what you will find! Be sure to sign up today!
Membership is fun and easy. The swatches are automatically sent to our members quarterly, along with The
Fat Quarterly newsletter. The 5 x 5" swatch packs have a minimum of 25 swatches (but usually much more!) in
each pack, and we provide a corresponding list of style numbers so you can take your swatches to your local
quilt shop if you wish to purchase more yardage.

There are many changes happening in the quilting world. Recently it was announced that AQS will stop
publishing books. Of course we have all seen the closing of favorite local quilt shops. Jake Finch,
co-founder and publisher of Generation Q magazine, offers some comments and insights into what she
sees happening in the quilting world.
