C&T Publishing is thrilled to announce the acquisition of Crosley-Griffith Publishing Company, bringing you an established and popular line of quilting books and products by esteemed quilter Judy Martin! Starting on November 1st, we will be publishing and distributing 10 Crosley-Griffith books and products.
Included in the lineup are books on making extraordinary Log Cabin quilts, a rotary reference book, books on traditional patchwork quilting, and many more. Judy Martin is also known for her rotary tools: a 45° rotary ruler made to open up new freedom in your pattern choices and a point trimmer to help you align patches perfectly for stitching.
For many years, Judy worked for Quilter's Newsletter Magazine and Quiltmaker. As an editor, Judy was one of the main pattern designers on staff, as well as the author of countless articles and six quilting books. In 1987, she left to start her own publishing company, Crosley-Griffith, with her husband, Steve Bennett. Judy Martin is proud to have designed and published more original patterns than anyone in history. As a well-recognized authority in the quilting world, top quilting authors look to Judy for inspiration, expertise, and patterns.
According to her website, “Judy Martin feels like the luckiest person in the world to get to make her living from quiltmaking. She buys more fabric than she'll ever use, asks her husband to just pull a sweater over it when his shirt loses a button, irons clothes only for weddings and funerals, and has gotten over feeling guilty about any of this. Judy encourages you to do the same. You'll live longer and be happier.”
Crosley-Griffith books and products will be available at ctpub.com and at fabric retailers and bookstores worldwide. Keep your eyes out!
