A Needle Pulling Thread magazine (click to link) is a very unique publication featuring patterns by Canadian designers which cover all sorts of fibre crafts in each issue. (Strongly recommended for those who dabble in everything.) Look here, they also have The Needlework Pages - there's a list of blogs, businesses, and more! : ) Look around at their site. The photography they do is just gorgeous!
I had an embroidered quilt pattern published last summer and they surprised me by putting it smack on the cover! My kids nearly peed their pants when they saw that! lol. Carla, the editor, had also asked if I would be interested in being profiled as an artist at that time. I was SO nervous that I think my initial reply was, "I don't know... let me think about it". ! ?? I took a chance and said, 'yes'. It was a bit of waitlist, however, THAT issue is finally on stands now in their Spring 2012 magazine.
If you would like to peek into their pages to see this fine magazine for yourself, you can do that by clicking on any picture of their back-issues. That link is here.
