The last step in every issue produced in Golden is a final look at the magazine, a digital look via a website (no paper proofs anymore), and then a signoff that the job is ready for the press. As I was going through the pages I lingered over our Tribute to Bonnie Leman, founder of Quilters Newsletter. Bonnie died this summer, but her influence endures. If you have been quilting a while you might know a bit about her. If you are new to quilting, please pick up our February-March 2011 issue (on newstands January 18, 2011) and read the 5-page article. We present a eulogy written by her son and a timeline which encompasses Bonnie’s life and the magazine’s history.
She has left a remarkable legacy, both professionally and personally. And while I never worked with her, I am grateful for the magazine she created and the opportunities it has given me. Rest in peace Mrs. Leman, your magazine is in loving hands.
