Vicki Anderson 

Vicki Anderson and her husband Dick are the owners of Meander Publishing Inc, which publishes Modern Quilts Unlimited and Machine Quilting Unlimited magazines. They love to travel in their RV, with their Tortoise Shell Calico cat Betty tagging along. They also enjoy spending time with their daughter, son-in-law and three grandsons, who fortunately live nearby.

Vicki has a diverse professional background including many years of producing newsletters, brochures and marketing materials for civic and personal interest organizations, creating and publishing a bi-monthly magazine for various farmers’ associations, and working as a writer and editor in the sewing, quilting and craft industries. An avid quilter, Vicki purchased Unlimited Possibilities Magazine in early 2006 and advanced it to the leading magazine for the longarm industry. One year after creating Machine Quilting Unlimited Magazine, launched in Dec 2007 to serve the home quilting enthusiast, she and Dick realized that they could create a stronger, more inclusive magazine which would address both the longarm and domestic machine quilter by combining the two magazines into one publication, retaining the title Machine Quilting Unlimited Magazine. In July 2009, the magazines were merged. They have now added Modern Quilts Unlimited to the family and look forward to working with the designers, manufacturers and quilters in this exciting new movement!
