American Quilter gets New Editor in Chief




Drum roll please…we are excited to announce OnPoint’s Ann Hammel is now the editor in chief of American Quilter magazine. Ann is responsible for overall design, content, and production of our magazine.

Prior to her designation as editor in chief, Ann Hammel spent three years writing and editing the AQS e-newsletter and blog, OnPoint, and performed additional writing duties throughout the company. American Quilter’s Society President Meredith Schroeder stated, “Ann Hammel’s lifelong love of sewing combined with her writing skills and her strong history with the AQS community through OnPoint made her the perfect choice for editor-in-chief of American Quilter. I am excited to see her influence take form in the coming issues of the magazine.”

Ann Hammel is a graduate of Lindenwood University with a degree in Mass Communication. Her experience in research and writing for a university foundation in Illinois and as a grant writer for a humanitarian organization in North Carolina paved the way to her writing and editing career with American Quilter’s Society in Paducah, Kentucky.

Congratulations Ann!
