Congratulations to Connecticut artist Vivika DeNegre, Editor of Quilting Arts Magazine! Pokey Bolton made the official announcement on December 16th and interviewed Vivika for the “Quilting Daily” blog.  Read the full article here:

Vivika is taking it all in.  Although she may have less time to work on her fiber art and beautiful bird portraits, DeNegre is excited to begin a new adventure:

“I am thrilled, of course, and also overwhelmed in many ways with the challenges - learning Photoshop, excel and outlook, understanding the publishing world from the inside, working once again after an 11 year retirement - all of these are new experiences.”

New Editor DeNegre is already working on the April/May 2012 issue of Quilting Arts magazine, and will launch her new Quilting Arts blog next month. 

Congratulations Vivika!
