    that's how I feel. you get to know which ones are really tutorials and which are sales pitches. She has given some good lessons, I think. Just delete the others. She has some videos on youtube as well, and I think she sincerely likes to teach what she knows. the word is "glean"

    I also made the mistake of signing up for her newsletter. Now I can't get off. I try to unsubscribe, but can't. I have been deleting every message since the first day, but they just keep on comming. I haven't bought a thing, and don't intend to.

    The same has happened to me

    Greetings,
    Yes, I have subscribed to Penny's free site and at the beginning I thought the information was useful and interesting. The problem is, after a while, a couple years I guess, the information becomes very repetitive, always the very same photographs of projects and quilts that Penny did 20 years ago. The tips and information start repeating itself and after a while, you've received the same tip, etc. two or three times. The photographs are always the same. Recently she sent a "project" or a log cabin tree that she had done
    years ago. The photographs were actually scanned from the original pictures and the quality was lousy. She could have spent an hour or so to re-do and update the project. She writes daily, I mean, in the morning, afternoon and evening, on weekends too. In good faith, I wrote to her to let her know that the large number of e-mails doesn't interest quilters, but the quality of the contents. She never replied.

    I would never ever pay money for anything coming from Penny.... on the other hand, free stuff is OK. But like I said, she's repeating information (most of it isn't novelty anyway to me), so I'll call it quits soon.

    Take care to all!
    Cyn

    Ditto for me on getting the mega email load from her. I will try to unsubscribe and see what happens. It is getting to be very bothersome to not get what you are promised (more or less) when you subscribe.

    I had the same experience start-to-finish. It has been my ONLY negative experience with an online subscription and it was devilish getting off her emailing list.

    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
