    I think Missouri Star Quilt Company makes more money selling their fabric and probably won't start charging - at least I hope not. But they did come out with a magazine you have to pay for.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    Carol Doak has a lot of free patterns on her web site. If you are just learning how to paper piece she is the best. I took a class from her years ago and she was nice and patient and a great teacher.

    I think that it is more likely that you are sent to Utube to sample the CD that comes with that particular book, to see if that is what you want to purchase. In order to save bandwidth, if you want to watch the whole thing, which is probably lengthy, then they want compensation for that time.

    I sincerely hope this isn't the trend. I'm a visual learner and need someone to show me step by step instructions before it sinks into this challenged brain of mine. That's why I like MSQC's quilting videos...

    Michelleoc, charging for emails has been proven to be a myth! That is not going to happen.

    If there is a charge I won't be watching them. If they don't sell they will have to go to plan B.

    I have heard that they were going to start charging for watching all U tube videos, but haven't heard when, I guess this is the start of it.

    There is also a considerable cost to producing the emails, you can see which ones are more professional than others.

    Facebook is now charging businesses to send updates to all the people who have liked their page.

    It costs money to produce videos, I think we have been lucky to have free access to so many for so long. It also costs a lot of money to host videos, stream videos etc.

    We often forget that as well as end users needing an internet connection, the video, needs to be uploaded to Youtube, stored there (storing and backing up data costs money), then there is the bandwidth to serve the video to you.

    I am not surprised that people are looking to recoup some of their expenses.

    Since Carol Doak is in the business of making money from her books and classes, I doubt there would be much incentive to let you watch a free video of her technique on YouTube - or anywhere else. I would think YouTube will still have free videos, but perhaps business people are wising up and not giving their source of income away for free.
