AQ Magazine Staff Biographies

Ann Hammel, Editor in Chief of AQ Magazine Ann Hammel, Editor in Chief of AQ Magazine

Becoming the editor in chief of American Quilter magazine perfectly blended Ann Hammel’s lifetime of sewing, her degree in Mass Communication from Lindenwood University, and her writing/editing skills. Prior to her designation as editor at AQS, she wrote and edited the AQS e-newsletter and blog, OnPoint, alongside writing duties throughout the company. Ann’s 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 in Paducah. Turning words into stories is much the same as turning pieces of fabric into beautiful quilts, and Ann loves to bring them both to life. After spending most of her life in the Midwest, the move to Kentucky took her just over the border to the South, where she also enjoys watercolors, photography, yarn, and creating unique recipes.
