When the latest issue of Quilter’s Home magazine went out, the editor, Mark Lipinski, knew it would raise a few eyebrows. (The cover line: “Shocking Quilts: We Show You the Controversial Patchwork”.) That’s why he spent $2,500 to have the magazines wrapped in plastic before they hit news stands. That, however, didn’t go far enough for the mega-chain store Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts, which still refused to carry the issue—denying its customers a chance to see quilts like “Helping Hands,” an ode to Viagra. Lipinski isn’t overly concerned, though. The magazine is on sale at other big stores, like Barnes & Noble. And there’s been no complaints from readers.
