In 2013 I was asked to design a quilt for Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine. I was thrilled! (That reminds me that I need to get busy and finish my instructions.) I made another reproduction quilt last fall that I thought some magazine would like to publish. I went to my go-to magazine and they, very politely in a nice email said no. My friend Jill Reid and Susan McDermott have designed and published many quilts so they gave me the name of a few others to email.
BTW, the quilt I made last fall is complete and sent off to Quilt It Today magazine.
Today, 3 1/2 months AFTER submitting it online to a different magazine they sent a rude, short, impersonal rejection email. I'm sure they get a lot of submissions, but gee, how about a little class on the form letter?
Compared to my other personal responses, I was really surprised at the editor's abruptness.
How hard would it be to write "We really love your quilt but it isn't what we are looking for right now. Thank you for your submission. "
Had to get that off my chest......
