I know I’m not alone in finding self promotion difficult to practise, despite understanding how important it is. That’s why I’ve just crowdfunded Pete Mosley’s forthcoming book "The Art Of Shouting Quietly", subtitled "a guide to self-promotion for introverts and other quiet souls". If you’re one who feels reticent about mentioning your achievements and sharing your successes, this might be a good book to take a look at.

Promotion is rather easier when someone else does it for you, and I’ve been delighted and a bit overwhelmed this month to be featured in an art quilt magazine, Patchwork Professional. The magazine showcases a number of well-known textile artists producing beautiful work and I feel honoured to be included.

The magazine is German and I only have a Google-translated idea of what the article says, but it looks lovely, with lots of images.

It’s a celebration of my work and the Isle of Tiree where I live, drawn from what I’ve posted here on the blog, and crafted into a coherent story by the editor of Patchwork Professional, Dorothee Crane. My thanks to Dorothee and her team for getting 2015 off to such an exciting start for me!

    Congratulations, Fiona, I know the magazine a little, I used to buy it when we lived in Slovakia.

    Hi Fiona, I just read the article on the Patchwork Professional magazine and loved what I read and saw, therefore I looked up your website. You are making really interesting and lovely things and I sure will revisit.

    My copy has arrived. It’s amazing how much German you can kid yourself you know when you already have a pretty good idea of what they are saying!
    Well done; it’s lovely.
