Overcoming obstacles to change

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

We are in a stage of change here at the International Association of Creative Arts Professionals. Our biggest change is that we are no longer hosting our annual Creative Arts Business Summit after next weekend.

It was hard for me to decide to stop doing a successful event. After seven years, I felt rewarded by all the growth I saw in the creatives who had come to CABS, as we call it.

I have got David Bowie running through my head as I am sharing the changes here at the International Association of Creative Arts Professionals. We recently made a big change to our quarterly magazine, the one you’ve known as The Professional Quilter since 1983. Instead of reading The Professional Quilter, you will now open the pages of Create Inc. We have added a tag line: your art, your business, your life. Our goal is to help you take your art, your passion, and create the business that supports you in the lifestyle that you want.


Same magazine/New look

The name change reflects not only the growing interests of the professional quilter but also the expansion of ICAP to reach more mixed-media and other creative artists. You will find the same kind of valuable content with a new, fresher look.  What are your thoughts about our new name and look?
