Bonnie Leman of Wheatridge, Colorado, began publishing Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine in 1969. The magazine has documented the development of the quilt revival and industry since its early stages. This is how she described her magazine in her 1969 introductory editorial of “The Needle’s Eye”:

“We want it to be the best one around for quilt collectors, quilt makers, and quilt lovers...Geography prevents us from having a real old-fashioned quilting bee, but we can all get together through this magazine, chat and exchange our ideas and news in a modern quilting bee.” Imaged used by permission.
